200 Feet Up in Second Life

I saw a wonderful cartoon yesterday, addressing the current jokes about global warming, and really wish I could find it again to share with you. The image was of a ship, like the Titanic, with the bow pointing almost straight down; half of it already underwater. The stern was sticking up in the air and on top was the figure of a man.

The text read something like “Science says we’re sinking. That’s crazy! I’m 200 feet up!”

With much of the continent I call home getting endless snow storms, my little corner is 200 feet up. As I walked around town yesterday people were mowing their lawns and washing their cars – not typical February activities.

There was a common theme in the conversations I had with everybody else wandering around.

After agreeing that it was a beautiful day, and commiserating with the “poor bastards” back east, somebody would always say what the rest of us were thinking. “We’re going to pay for this.”

There are 3 theories about the form of payment which will be required. Some believe that winter will come back with a vengeance and destroy all the flower buds, orchards, and strawberry fields, etc.

Others are convinced we’ll have another 5 month drought with unreasonably high temperatures (as we did last year) which, for a rain forest, is not good news.

Myself, I think both are likely.

Wherever you are, remember we’re all on the same boat. Unlike much of the world, however, we can escape it temporarily in the virtual. :)
