Down By Teh River

Tom Englehardt this morning channels Andy Borowitz:

I hate to laugh, but why not? Here’s New Yorker satirist Andy Borowitz on a recent study showing that the phrase “climate change” manages to essentially elicit no reaction from anyone. Tom

“After a report from the Yale Center on Climate Change Communication showed that the term “climate change” elicits relatively little concern from the American public, leading scientists are recommending replacing it with a new term: ‘You will be burnt to a crisp and die.’

“Other terms under consideration by the scientists include ‘your cities will be ravaged by tsunamis and floods’ and ‘earth will be a fiery hellhole incapable of supporting human life.’ Scientists were generally supportive of the suggestions, with many favoring the term ‘your future will involve rowing a boat down a river of rotting corpses.’

When all the ice is melted finally…we can drill, baby.

And since it will be so warm we won’t need it for heating homes, we’ll have a huge surplus of oil we can turn into gasoline to burn in cars.

It’s a blessing in disguise!

And then we can use the cars to travel to all kinds of exotic and interesting places.

Especially to all the new beaches!

Global Warming will be cool!

Named features on maps of Death Valley National Park include the Funeral Mountains, Coffin Peak, Hell’s Gate, Starvation Canyon and Dead Man Pass
