Until recently, the weather has been a standby topic of small talk. But as the effects of global warning take hold, we all turn into meteorologists with our theories on why there was a tsunami wave on Lake Shore. We strategize at what point we should start drawing up some blueprints for the ark after 39 days of rain and lament a simpler time when spring was distinguishable from summer, when there was nothing to tease you into believe that global warming had kicked mother earth into early menopause.
But GOOD posed a much-needed question last week. At what point do we accept that this unpredictable weather is the norm? We need to accept that it’s not going to get hot and sunny until July, but it might stick around until October. Environmentalists have been predicting this for years, its just odd to actually experience the effects of global change.
