Global Warming has hypothetically placed humanity on a ticking time bomb. If the vast majority of the world's scientists are right, we have just ten years to avert a major catastrophe that could send our entire planet into a tail-spin of epic destruction involving extreme weather, floods, droughts, epidemics and killer heat waves beyond anything we have ever experienced.
I understand that Global Warming is a growing problem, but I live in Minnesota and we have had two major snow storms in 7 days. The latest storm dropped as much as 17 inches of snow in parts of the Twin Cities. In northern Minnesota, Finland got a reported 25 inches and Duluth got 18 inches.
Here was my personal wake up call this morning
I found it rather ironic when I finally made it to work this morning and sitting in my inbox was an email from the Minnesotans for Global Warming Solutions. I actually laughed out loud as I read their email discussing rising temperatures as the melting snow soaked through my boot and pants.
The morning News had reported that more than 350 schools and school districts reported class cancellations Friday. At the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, operations were "pretty much back to normal" by about 9:30 a.m. Friday, a day after 400 flights were canceled. The entire area was a complete mess.
Considering all the current weather conditions, I think the Minnesotans for Global Warming Solutions marketing effort might be met with a lot of laughs.
