I could only hope so. The climate has definitely changed here over the past 20 years. Winters are generally more mild and summers don't have the power line melting heat and humidity anymore. I love it and hope this trend continues. Maybe in time the Midwest will be a sort of a Florida winter get away type of destination. People will start putting in swimming pools in their homes which will definitely be a plus for me. If San Fran and Miami become submerged underwater that would be awesome. You can't even walk around in San Fran without stepping in homeless people's sh1t or used needles anymore thanks to ultra liberal policies. Yet climate change is their top priority.... even though the US has among the lowest levels of pollution despite being the greatest producer of c02.
In either case we'll have to find a solution or we're toast.
Why? People like Al Gore have been saying that ice caps will melt ever since the 70s. I've lost count of the statements he's made that haven't come true. But I do remember the percentage - 100%. Scientists can't even agree if we're going through global warming or global cooling.
You think the Chinese care about this? They won't even consider paying any sort of money to countries that can manage their own environments and can't even build sewers let alone efficient power plants. If it gets in the way of economic progress you can bet the Chinese won't be on board. It's only foolish Europeans and Americans, which as the images I've posted yesterday show, have the lowest pollution levels while third world countries have the highest even though their c02 emissions are far smaller than EU, USA, and other developed countries.
The ozone layer hole has shrunk to record low... livescience.com/27049-ozone-hole-shrinks-record-low.html
even though c02 emissions has clearly gone up worldwide over the past decade.
They bought up so much land in New Zealand that the country now bans foreigners from buying property.
If global warming is indeed occurring and threatens to melt ice caps, isn't an island the last place you'd want to be?
