But I don't have a solution.
See: that's what I was trying to say: Don't bring me a problem. Bring me a solution to the problem.
What are the solutions other than higher taxes and wealthier politicians?

I remember one time when I was a little girl that we got hit with a major snow storm and frigid temps right after Thanksgiving. It stayed so cold after that that it wasn't until the first or middle of January when we hit the January "warm spell" that we saw temps in the 30s. Not only did that snow not melt off, but we were lucky if our daytime highs even approached 20 degrees that year in central Kansas where I grew up.
I am guessing that was a year where the polar vortex paid us a visit.
I remember it so well because I remember being so habituated to the cold that we were all wearing light jackets when the temps were right at freezing (32 degrees). That's how cold it was for a month or so.
So this sort of thing is hardly unheard of or unprecedented.

Better than mine :-)
Balanced and thoughtful
Honestly - I don't get too worked up about that many things - but this really is one of those for me
As I mentioned in another post - I see changes, I see people beginning to think
It is up to all of us - each of us has different strengths is all
It's all good I think - even the arguing. Maybe especially the arguing
Seems to me nature while warming up is still able to give nations that have not joined the world in the environmental acts and treaties to reconsider and start respecting just before its too late.
Start listening to the dying planet.
Cost externalizing is a socio-economical term describing how a business maximizes its profits by off loading indirect costs and forcing negative effects to a third party.

Sub-Zero in the mid-south. Always fun.... Plumbers make their wages on events like this, I tell ya.
