Global Warming: The Bright Side

Where are these guys who are on the nut about global warming when you need them? Did you go outside yesterday? Brrrrrrrrr! It was 25 degrees out there, wind chill at 7! Where were they when that town in upstate NY got six feet in Feb? It seems they only come out when it suits their purposes, like the hurricane season in the Atlantic two years ago. Does Katrina ring a bell?

I watch with awe the National Geographic channel’s programs on the Galapagos Islands and Discovery’s “Planet Earth” series on the polar ice caps. It seems the ice has been receeding. Winters come earlier and it is estimated that if the earth’s temperture rises 4 degrees globally, 30 percent of the species will become extinct. Ofcourse this is all speculation and it won’t happen in my lifetime, especially with my bad habits. (i.e. “The Agony of Defeat”),

But there is a good side and I am patiently waiting for it. We won’t have to go to Florida anymore. College students will be coming to the D’ for Spring Break. ‘Girls Gone Wild, Detroit” will be sold everywhere! Imagine the tourists walking up and down Washington, Madison, Broadway and Woodward with the palm trees swaying in the tropical breeze. No more pea coats, scarfs, warm gloves. All this because of global warming! Yea baby, I can’t wait!

    Don’t wait, fill the Wintergarden at GM with sand and film Girls Gone Wild under the palms – not that I’m encouraging that kind of behaviour, but here’s an option for those who like that sort of thing.

    oh the irony of having palm trees in a place called “Detroit’s winter garden” and if you’re anything like me you also think of palm trees when you think of winter time in the tropical setting of Detroit. and i like the idea of filming our own DVD there but i think to give it more of a D feel we should film “Hobo’s Gone Wild”

    I have been pining for the MI palm trees for a while. I would love to sell resort homes (which just ain’t happening in Metro Detroit) and imagine the boost global warming will give the local economy.
