Last year at this time I lost my job due to climate change.
days ago, the vehicle my son was driving got a flat tire. I saw that a screw,
not a nail, had somehow cleanly penetrated the tire. I took it in to be patched
or repaired. The technician at the tire shop said it couldn’t be repaired, as it
was punctured in a bad place. He said that global climate change was causing
changes in the relative densities of metals and rubber and that therefore flat
tires were becoming more common. He told me that I’d need a new tire (the
punctured one was only a year old), but that, due to global warming, he didn’t
have a matching tire in stock. He’d have to get one from a nearby location. He told me that it was hard to keep tires in stock as they aren’t lasting as long as
they used to on the hotter roadways of the era.
noticed coolant leaking out of my truck’s engine compartment and puddling on
the driveway. I brought it in to the dealership and had it diagnosed. The tech
said it was leaking from the thermostat and thermostat housing. It would be
$580 to fix. He said this is occurring more frequently now because of
man-caused climate change. (Thermostats are devices that signal changes in
temperature and/or establish and maintain a desired
recently found out that my son received his first ‘non-A’ grade in high school
on an advanced placement calculus test. We attribute this to El-Nino’ induced
warming, as there doesn’t appear to be any other logical reason for the mark.
the last couple of weeks I have
noticed the rapidly rising temperatures where I live. Two weeks ago we had lows
in the teens a couple of nights, yet this week has seen daytime highs rise into
the sixties on consecutive days! The earth is overheating to the point that ice
is melting on many lakes in the area. If this trend continues, their ice sheets
will completely disappear in a matter of weeks! This would be disastrous for
ice fishermen who depend on the ice to provide them a safe and secluded place
to drink and get away from their wives.
There are those who claim global warming or climate change is
a hoax, but I know better. They would rather just ignore all the obvious signs.
just no reasoning with some people.
