‘Climate Change’ Caused Snowfall Has Big Social Implications Or Something

This is what decades of spreading awareness on ‘climate change’ along with turning kids into Special Snowflakes brings

The heavy snowfall and its wider social implications

The snow has gone now, but for a few days it was as if our city was in lockdown. When a human being’s physical environment changes so drastically, so quickly, it is not unusual to feel all kinds of emotions, discombobulated and out of touch being just a couple. Though being cut off from our day-to-day routines and the faces we are used to is disconcerting, amongst all this there lies a prospect more terrifying. This is the idea of a permanent and radical shift in the physical environment, which fundamentally changes our lives. Imagine if the streets you walk down every day, and the buildings in which you eat, sleep, work and read, never looked the same again.

That is what it felt like in Edinburgh with the onset of the ‘Beast from the East’. Normal life was paralysed. Economic activity became pretty much impossible; the chance to study and learn was temporarily put on hold. Yet, in our cold and windswept corner of the developed world, we can afford an interruption like this. Scotland, for the most part, enjoys a standard of living which is the envy of the world. Not all are so lucky.

These people are soft. It’s a storm. Nothing even that bad. Go outside and play. Enjoy. Instead, these people go into mental meltdown.

Hysteria has no place in the climate debate…

Yet, we saw it in the first two paragraphs

…Thick-headed remarks like ‘tut-tut, must be climate change’ whenever the weather changes drastically are unhelpful, because they confirm the deniers of man-made climate change with their implicit scepticism.

Yet the issues are increasingly scary. For millions of people worldwide, climate change represents a permanent and disruptive change to their physical environment: their lives will never be the same again. Whether it’s desertification in the Sahel, or intense flooding in Bangladesh, the fact remains that there are people in the world who will, and are, feeling the full force of climate change now. They are the first to feel the consequences of our dirty path to prosperity; it is they who will suffer for modernity’s crime.

Soft. Very soft. Mushy headed. Grow a pair, youngsters.

    Who’s the “expert” clown who said “children won’t know what snow is…”?

  5. Dana says:

    That’s the thing about these Spring snowstorms: they hit, they bury stuff, but the snow is gone in two days.

    Jeffrey, April Fool’s Day is no fun if you’re a fool 365 days a year.
