Skifree is upset, of course, with the weather.
Sixty degrees at 8 am in January! Climate change?
El Nino?, Both?
Unfortunately climate change is real, ongoing and with no end in sight. We must address the problem. Money spent now IS well spent. The Stern Report outlines the scope of the problem. It also has the clear adviso that
“…the benefits of strong and early action far outweigh the economic costs of not acting.”
Skifree is pleased to hear that the Patrick administration is poised to link Massachusetts back into RGGI, the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative which head-in-the-sand-Romney pulled out of. States HAVE to show leadership where the current federal adminstration has failed so miserably. If Ahnold can do it so can we.
And its not about skiing. It is about the effects on humanity… think how many in Bangldesh live within meter of sealevel, think of how many island nations will be wiped out as storms wash over them due to sealevel rise. That’s the beginning.
Change is coming too fast for all but the richest to accomodate to.
