Sunday Funday: Earth Day Next Thursday Edition

About the cutest smile I have ever seen:

You can’t see the forest for the trees and you can’t see the climate for the weather. It is cool in Iowa for April, so I guess we can bury our heads in the sand once more and pretend there is no climate problems.

Unfortunately there are plenty of climate problems. To underscore that, some news reporting has slowly started to favor the term “climate emergency” over the more well known “climate change” or “climate crisis.” Will the word emergency do anything to get some people, especially a certain American political party, to change their behaviors and do even a little to stop the looming crisis?

If the word “pandemic” can’t get through their thick skulls, I doubt “emergency” will mean anything to them. Just another libtard scare to take way their “freedumbs.” 

Well at least for a while we will have President Biden who does understand what a climate emergency is and will actually do something about it.
