So far this year, we have seen polar ice caps melting more swiftly into the see, extreme weather spawning tornadoes across the central United States wreaking havoc, and now there is more tangible proof that the laws of global warming are taking a real grip globally and locally, midwestern rummage sales are slated to take a dramatic fiscal hit this year.
“Sure, the snow is gone, the ice piles is melting, and the flowers are popping up everywhere, but this change will touch us all, it will cause rummage salers to be absolutely confused about when to go rummagesaling… when to buy or sell. What’s even more, executives holding rummage sales will be just as confused as when to have a rummage sale as a tomato plant that tries to bloom in march in Duluth!” One disgruntled anonymous self-proclaimed community representative said last week.
All of this nice, tempered weather in what should be a winter weather wonderland this season will have an eventual, inevitable, severe, insane, incredible, unbelievable, amazing, awesome, terrible, ridiculous, measurable cost. Rummage sales sales for 2017 are forecasted to be down, way down. Down so much so that $25 worth of things-you-no-longer-wanted-cluttering-up-your-house will be worth only $15.
This year’s global warming inevitability is bad, real bad. (And that’s been fact-checked) When you think about the local effect that global warming has on the world, it is hard to comprehend. If each neighborhood is unable to make money off of rummage sales then the GDP for that neighborhood will be perish, changing tax values, raising the crime rate, adding to growing poverty, and this obviously leads to more socio-economical matters of grave concern, of course more protests.
And with all this bad, there is a silverling. Although, global warming will be felt locally–by law, immensely this year, there is still hope. A band of vigilante activists called “NCF” (which stands for No Carbohydrate Footprint) is out spreading the message to reduce their carbohydrate footprint drastically. Their actions are simple and easy and anyone can make change for the better. They advise the masses to simply eat less bread, noodles, and pop tarts. We can all make positive change in these dire times by stepping it up and reducing out carbohydrate footprint.
In lieu of all of this new information from this new study, now that there is visible measurable proof, all naysayers can switch their ideologies and start fixing the problem here and now, on this planet. Further, to help reduce one’s carbohydrate footprint one must avoid all grains, all food products that have carbohydrates in them. The world truly depends on those with higher enlightenment, those with the ability to make change in the present for the better of the future.
