Break Out the Sunblock!
A week before Christmas in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and it’s 55 degrees outside. In another 50 years, scientists expect the Arctic North to be ice free during certain months of the year. How are my grandchildren going to buy the whole Santa deal when the North Pole is covered in slush instead of snow?
Will Santa have to reinvent himself to be believable in the world we’re leaving to them?? Will he be wearing bermuda trunks and a golf visor in place of his traditional Red Santa Suit and Black Santa Boots, using a Jet-ski instead of his Sleigh to deliver presents to children around the world on Christmas Eve? After all, once the ice caps melt, we’ll all be blessed with ocean-side property — especially here in Milwaukee where either coast will only be a few hours drive, just like Florida! — so maybe they won’t have such a hard time believing the Santa-in-a-Jet-Ski theory.
But global warming is just a myth according to our administration, so I have nothing to worry about… Yup, just another winter with above average temperatures, I’ll just have to start getting used to it.
