Continuing the 25 Days of Climate Christmas
(Wicked Local) It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – but only where The Simpsons live. The long-running Fox series will celebrate the holidays Sunday, Dec. 15 (8/7c) in predictably screwy fashion: Thanks to global warming, there’s no snow anywhere in the United States except in Springfield, where a radiation leak at the town’s nuclear-power plant has resulted in lots of local white stuff. Cue the price gouging.
“Springfield is suddenly booming with tourists who want a traditional white Christmas and that means all the prices are jacked up,” exec producer Al Jean tells TV Guide Magazine. “To cope with the new high cost of shopping, Marge turns the Simpson home into a B&B.”
Interestingly, December 11th was possibly a record for snow coverage. 4 out of the past 5 winters were very cold and snowy, and it looks like this winter will be the same. Oh, wait, sorry, I forgot that “climate change” theory proclaims that cold weather, snow, and ice is caused by too much in the way of man released GHGs. My bad!
