A Swift-ian Take on Climate Change

Change, being a necessary part of life in time, is being lamented in certain quarters because of an irrational fear of difference.  But I would deign to point out that there are good reasons indeed to cherish change and to embrace it fully when it comes to a different climate.

First, there are definitely benefits to climate change.  As the ice caps melt and the climate warms the water levels of the ocean will rise.  This will put an end to those peskier parts of low lying lands like Florida and Texas, California and New York and New Jersey and South Carolina and the Netherlands and other hotbeds of incestuous iniquity.

Second, as the climate warms, growing seasons will lengthen allowing farmers to grow even more food than they presently do.

Third, the North and South poles will become tourist destinations thanks to their balmy climates.

Fourth, Winters will be less harsh meaning less snow.  And there’s nothing wrong with that!

The poo pooers and the nay-sayers and the alarmists and the pessimists will tell you that climate change is bad.  But clearly there are numerous reasons not only to appreciate it, but to embrace it!

    You realize that a consequence of this is that the Texans will move north to places like Tennessee. Do you really want that?

        The ones who are relatively well-off will. The poor will be left to fend for themselves. As usual.
