Im sitting here in New Jersey right now in the middle of a pretty intense thunderstorm, some hail and a lot of lightning but nothing really far out of
In my personal studies on the weather within the united states i have come to a pretty certain conclusion that many others have also met. We are
experiencing the most extreme weather that the country has ever seen. This is completely obvious for all you nay-sayers. With the floods, tornados,
thunderstorms micro-bursts and everything else going on; anyone who's done any serious research on the weather (no not the news) will tell you that
its getting worse. The answer is pretty simple; the world warms up a couple degrees, that translates into massive amounts of energy for the air to
evaporate water from the oceans, winds move faster, ect, ect. It's a pretty easy pill to swallow.
So global warming: check, regardless of what is causing it, it's happening, and considering the exponential acceleration of industry and greenhouse
gasses, we're probably nearing the big one. Hopefully it doesn't hit good ol' jersey.
Education: The public school systems in America, and Europe are going to the dogs. Take this from a student; the schools take tax dollars, and spend
them on all sorts of stupid **** that is unnecessary. School systems in the less 'fortunate' areas are all but failing, students with parents that
care are sending their kids to aunts and uncles who live in better towns, it's happening everywhere. They're loading up the tax bill of everyone else,
it's not fair. Combine that with the education cuts and you can see that we're traveling down the spiral. seeing as the current generation absolutely
failed in their goals to create a cleaner and more friendly place to live we should be relying on the younger generations correct? No, because they
aren't receiving educations. As a student, i'll say with the utmost confidence that my hometown system has absolutely failed, and when i wrote to them
explaining why, they decided to make me see a therapist. they are going to spend thousands of dollars over a few cuss words and a lot of good points,
I ask you members of ATS, stop wasting time with you're conspiracy theories and end of the world prophecies. Focus on what's actually happening,
what's actually going to run the world into the ground.
as for the nay-sayers. SMD. i'll be in the heat of the battle dealing with the mess everyone else created when **** hits the fan.
