A Green Winter: Climate Change and the Canadian Identity

A quietly brilliant and poignant visual essay from my friend, Franke James, musing on the nature of Canadian identity, and our future in a climatically changed environment.
It was inspired by a conversation with Freakonomics author Steven Levitt. I asked him how he would solve Global Warming. Levitt quipped, "Why would you worry about it? Global Warming will be good for Canada. Look how much more of the country will be populated if it's warmer!"

Update (1 Feb 2007): Franke's visual essay has caught the attention of the Toronto Star, which is featuring it on the front page of the GTA section.
