A Thousand Year Rain
If we don’t elect a progressive President in 2008, we might well have a rain that lasts one thousand years.
No, I didn’t make a typographical error. I didn’t mean to say that we’re going to have a reign that lasts for one thousand years. I meant rain - as in the water that falls from the sky.
Where I live, it’s normal for the year to be divided into two halves. In one half of the year, it snows. In the other half of the year, it rains. Global warming, however, is threatening to change that. Before too long, even in the northern states of the USA, the rains could last all year long.
Worse than that, the warming that leads to the permanent season of rains will likely go on for a thousand years, even if people find a way to stop polluting the air with greenhouse gases soon. According to a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to be released this week, the warming created by human activity in this century alone is likely to last for one thousand years.
Progressives have been pushing for solutions to the global warming threat for decades. Right wingers have been resisting, saying that nothing should be done.
The prospect of one thousand years without a snowman, or sledding, or snowball fights?? Your kids will tell you that’s a very good reason to act to confront the climate change crisis. If we don’t choose a progressive candidate for President in 2008, that thousand year rain we’re moving into could last even longer.
Change: Barack Obama for a Better Economy. The word "Change" is filled with pennies, dimes and quarters. Some change is tangible. This change will be real. (pro-Obama bumper sticker)
