Don’t try to tell me about climate change! I’ve experienced it, up close and personal.
One year I was working in Boston, where the temperature was 18 degrees below freezing—frigid.
I got on a plane to leave and, several hours later, got off in Los Angeles, where the temperature was 72 degrees. Now, that’s climate change—a warming of 58 degrees!
On another occasion, I was vacationing in Florida in January. The temperature was regularly in the 70s and I packed clothing suitable for the warm weather. Unfortunately, the trip was interrupted when I was called upon to handle an emergency: in Cleveland, Ohio of all places. When I arrived in Ohio, it was 10 degrees below freezing and snowing. I didn’t have any kind of winter clothes, only short-sleeved shirts.
Now, that is climate change!
A climate change of a few degrees over the next 100 years? Yawn.
What do you think?
