What’s Wrong With A Warmer World?

Of all the First World Problems you could be whining about, worrying about the weather has got to be the first-worldiest.

So let’s assume you’re right. Let’s assume that climate change is happening and the world is going to be 2 or 4 or 6 degrees warmer in 10, 20 or 50 years.

Okay, you win. But before you ask me to spend trillions of dollars to bring down the temperature a little bit you have to answer the next logical question:

What’s wrong with a slightly warmer planet?

Earth-on-Fire

Most climate change hysterics don’t realize that the Earth has been warmer than it is now at various times throughout it’s geological history, and in those warmer eras humans have thrived, becoming healthier and wealthier and happier than ever before. It is only when the temperature drops that we become miserable and freeze to death.

Humans like being warm! That’s why we vacation in Hawaii and not Inuvik.
