When is this fucking Global Warming going to end?
Last month we had record breaking falls of Global Warming. I have never seen so much in November before. Virtually every night the temperature reached record levels, with each night breaking the previous night’s record.
Now they are issuing severe weather alerts with further falls of Global Warming expected from tomorrow onwards.
And before any smart arse gets their nose in, I know the difference between climate and weather. If we had say five inches of Global Warming and it left it at that, I would say that is weather. However this latest batch of Global Warming is international, continent wide, unprecedented and occurring for more that just one year. Last year was shit too, but yiz have all forgotten about that by now?
Our gubmint is going frantic at the moment buying up stocks of salt for the roads. They were caught with their pants down before and are trying to make amends this winter.
But why are they buying salt?
For as long as I can remember, roads were gritted with sand [or grit?] and it did a perfectly good job. There are countless tons of the stuff lying around the country. During the spell of Global Warming last winter, there was pandemonium as there wasn’t enough salt. A few quarry owners stepped up to the mark and offered free sand for the roads. Did the gubmint take them up on their offer? Did they fuck! They just ordered tons more salt at God knows what cost.
Salt is bad stuff. It corrodes cars, is expensive and is also bad for any animal that walks on it. Sand, on the other hand is readily available, cheap [or free] and doesn’t damage anyone, or anything. The only drawback with sand is the small mess it makes after the Global Warming has thawed. Considering that most of our roads are falling asunder, I would have thought that a wee drop of sand wouldn’t make the blindest bit of difference. So why the fuck are the gubmint using salt? It makes no sense whatsoever, especially as we are supposed to be broke.
The longer I live, the more confused I become.
