This Canadian spot for the World Wildlife Fund’s climate change initiative pretty wonderfully highlights the western world’s current attitude toward the problem.

    I don’t know much about climate change, but after a few months of near or sub zero temperatures, the past few days of 30-40 degree weather feels so good. It’s nice to see people driving around with their windows down in February. I like false-springs. Then again, if Punxetawny Phil (I refuse to look up the correct spelling) is to be believed, this is the start of good times.

    It’s not that I ‘hate’ winter, per se. I just enjoyed it a hell of alot more when I was younger. Plus, you know, having the water pipes in your house freeze sucks. Bring on Spring, and then subsequently summer (bonus: work slows down incredibly in the summer, which leads to being paid while getting drunk on the boss’ tab. I’ve decided that it doesn’t get much better than that.)

    I don’t know what that has to do with anything, it was quiet here today, so I felt the need to type aimlessly. See? If you want me to shut up, you should probably be commenting on this stuff.

    Oh, and global warming sounds like an awesome idea during the Winter.

    Very impressive visual effects to get those people into those shots.

    It just hit 70F today here in Ar-kin-saw and it’s weird to be hearing the bugs in the woods outside my window already.  Looks like it will be this warm til the weekend.  I, personally, like Fall and Winter so I’m not particularly down for it to be so warm so soon.  Distance makes the heart grow fond and you absolutely can have too much of a good thing and WAY too much of a bad thing so I’d like the warm weather to wait until at LEAST March.  Here’s hoping for a cold front.

    Saying that you don’t mind global warming because you don’t like the cold is sort of like saying you don’t enjoy poison because of the bad taste.

    No it’s like saying you don’t mind the poison, because it tastes much better than Shasta.

    And Shasta sucks, therefore, I win. My logic is infallible.

    Geez and I thought my analogy was bad.

    I’m as good at analogies as bacon is to milk shakes!
