Save St Paul Street Glaciers, Stop Climate Change

St Paul, MN in late 2019, by TSN_

St Paul, MN–Perhaps, in an effort to combat the melting of glaciers due to almost certain man-made climate change, it seems the city of St Paul has welcomed all glaciers to St Paul side streets no matter size, no matter age, nor water body of origin.

This truly progressive effort by the city stresses inclusiveness, diversity, equity, and open-mindedness in relation to factual, emotional, and physical sciences, boldly in a world of climate nano-, micro-, and macro- aggression(s).

Not only will this apparent effort of non-snow-removal stifle climate change locally, it will also work in conjunction with the Green New Deal, The Paris Agreement, and Greta Thornberry’s climate agenda, in general.

Let’s look at the possibilities brought on by saving the street glaciers in St Paul.

Saving the street glaciers in St Paul can:

Limit carbon emissions for the city–no more snowplows on our streets, no more dangerous exhaust fumes. This will cut carbon emissions drastically, today, leading to a cleaner and safer world for all tomorrow. It’s really very simple!

Limit petrol use and promote renewable energy resources–no more using gasoline, no more hazardous fossil fuels. We all wanted that, right? This is one step closer to the Green New Deal, and we can start doing it today, forget delaying gratification–that’s a waste of time! If the roads are impassable right now then they will not be used, right now. Simple common sense.

Reduce costs of city streets, period –eliminate streets all together, the city would save so much money if the streets were turned into one giant sidewalk/bike lane. In fact, we could use gravel, a renewable resource made of rocks from the earth and outer space. If there are no streets there are no costs to fix the streets. That’s huge savings. Again, make these very same depleted streets into green spaces, sidewalks, or bike lanes. They could even be made out of repurposed plastic grocery bags. That’s really planning for transportation of the future. Let’s get ahead of the game!

To summarize, these underrepresented and under-appreciated street glaciers can seasonally curtail our coming climate change catastrophe by reducing the temperatures brought on by man-made climate change.

So the next time you attempt to traverse the streets of St Paul and you encounter a street glacier, just remember, you are doing your community and your planet (and the future human race) a major justice by conforming to the Green New Deal and making the planet’s health a priority. Thank you!

New Study: Global warming to cause devastating measurable harm in America locally in 2017, spring rummage sales in the midwest to take an incredibly massive hit

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.
