Yeah I know it’s a bit risky bringing up the subject of Climate Change but I will be real quick with my thoughts on the matter. Ok here goes……..
Climate – definition – the weather condition prevailing in an area in general or over a long period.
Change – make or become different.
So I would be correct in saying the Climate Change actually means that your general weather in your area becomes different? Stay with me…..
In our area, for which I have been a resident for 37 years, we have always had super hot summers, drought, severe storms and the like. Every season has been the same since I can remember. It seems to me to be hotter yes, but I am older, air conditioning is readily available in cars, houses, workplaces and schools which conditions our bodies to artificial cooling (which I can’t live without now) and not the heat we were once accustomed to. Back in the day we were lucky to have fans, we used to bathe regularly in cold water or just sit under the sprinkler. Nowadays we will burn to a crisp just walking from the house to the car. Could it be that WE as a species have changed? Could it be that WE have become soft?
Anyway I would have thought Climate Change would be the climate actually CHANGING, which means my area would be covered in snow and ice and not the friggin heat wave that we get every single damn year! Bring on Climate Change, bring on the snow, bring on some cooler damn weather and bring on a White Christmas!
