Honorable Elisabeth May
Humanity will adapt to climate change; the prime concern, as usually, is the unequal distribution of wealth to do so  — conclusions  from my work at Environment Canada’s  Adaptation Impacts Research Group some years ago.
However, adaptation to rising nuclear, low-level radiation polluton is impossible.
You seem oblivious to this issue. In 2011, I wrote you on lack of monitoring and public data on the health effects in Canada of the radiation from Fukushima meltdowns.
With great delay, you have dismissed my concerns by referring to nuclear lobby’s deceptive propaganda on supposed safety of No. 4 spent fuel pool in Daiichi. Corium in melted-down Fukushima reactors will be emitting radiation into air, ocean water and soil for tens of years to come.
Therefore, I find your concern about climate change a red herring. To the detriment of  your reputation, you refer to the “Establishment”: World Bank and IEA among others.
The former is instrumental in subduing nations before an attack and occupation by global powers (Yugoslavia, Iraq…). The latter is not known for easing nuclear and fossil fuel dependency (controlled by the world’s mightest interests).
Islands can evacuate, but Iraqis could not: several million civilians killed since 1990 in Iraq, by UN sanctions, coalition forces, incl. Canada, and their proxies:

When are you going to treat you electorate seriously?

Elizabeth May, O.C., M.P.
Why a two degree Celsius increase in the global average temperature is a big deal
The Hill Times
January 21, 2013
The International Energy Agency is warning that shooting past two degrees Celsius average global temperature will have “dire consequences.” And the World Bank is talking about 3.5 degrees of warming as being “devastating.” These are not environmental agencies. They are conservative, economically-oriented institutions. They are “establishment” with a capital E. Their language is increasingly alarmed, and yet nothing happens.
I think part of the problem is that even when experts understand the peril in which all human society is placed, those who are alarmed are afraid to sound “alarmist.” Translating the impact of two degrees, 3.5 degrees, and even higher levels of warming into language that is clear and unequivocal is not a project for the faint of heart. Let me try to explain two key factors in the IEA, World Bank, IPCC, and other projections.
The first is that these agencies do not yet say there is no chance of avoiding the two degree of warming threat which all countries, including Canada, and Prime Minister Stephen Harper personally in Copenhagen in 2009, have pledged to avoid. What is said is that if the collectivity of nations maintain current plans for climate action, the total impact is to allow greenhouse gases to continue to rise. On current policy trajectories, we fail miserably in our stated objectives. Only with the kind of urgent and comprehensive economic transitions undergone by nations at war can we avoid over-shooting two degrees. And even then, we are not guaranteed success.
Two degrees global average temperature warming is not a goal. It is to be avoided. It represents a level of human-caused climate impact which ensures dangerous levels of climatic destabilization. Many low-lying island states point out that at two degrees, they will be permanently inundated.
