The people who were pretending that global warming did not exist five years ago are today pretending that global warming is not a problem. As I mentioned yesterday, one of our readers has predicted that global warming will turn the Earth into a paradise, like a “day at Disneyland”.
Actually, global warming is implicated in the onset of what California’s Governor Arnold Schwarzenneger called “one of the worst water crises in its history”. As subtropical climate expands from the equator northward and southward, it’s bringing the low rainfall of southern California to northern California, threatening to convert almost all the state into desert.
If global warming is a Disneyland, it’s a Disneyland without water. Spending a day in a crowded theme park with nothing to drink and no flushing toilets doesn’t sound like a paradise to me.
