The weather today was insane – in a good way, like Batman, not in a bad way, like Moon Knight. Early January and it was fucking t-shirt weather. This truth is looking more and more convenient from where I’m standing. Actually, I just saw on the news that it’s not global warming that’s to . . . blame? . . . for the warm weather; it’s El Nino. Global warming, a lot of people forget, refers to long term weather trends – an unseasonably warm day, even an unseasonably warm year is not proof of global warming by itself, just as an especially harsh winter isn’t proof to the contrary. It’s the long-term trends that indicate what Al Gore likes to call the “climate crisis.”
The seas will rise, the continents will flood, billions will die and civilization as we know it will crumble, but in the short term the worst thing is all the fucking bikers who pull on the leather and go tearing down the road on their obnoxiously loud death cycles at the first sign of warm weather. What a way to ruin a perfect warm winter’s day.
