I hesitate to post this, seeing as the subject of global warming is clearly a serious one, but if nothing else it shows how the politicians and headline writers grab hold of things and twist them to their own ends. In fact I have just remembered that I posted something similar myself back in October 2006. But this list – Got a problem? Blame global warming! – knocks the socks off my feeble attempt! Here are a few of my personal favourites….
- better beer
- Earth lopsided
- extinctions (human, civilisation, logic, Inuit, smallest butterfly, cod, ladybirds, bats, pandas, pikas, polar bears, pigmy possums, gorillas, koalas, walrus, whales, frogs, toads, turtles, orang-utan, elephants, tigers, plants, salmon, trout, wild flowers, woodlice, penguins, a million species, half of all animal and plant species, less, not polar bears)
And that’s just three points out of about a hundred in the full list
