Canadian reader Jack Linard pleads for environmental justice:
It was -28 degrees Celsius in Montreal last night. There must be something we can do about this. Perhaps a UN-sponsored conference or something. I know there’s not a lot we humans can do to raise global temperatures, but a symbolic effort would certainly be appreciated by those of us who suffer year after year from these inhumane conditions. There must be something we can do to raise the temperature of the earth by 0.1 or 0.2 degrees. Perhaps burn a bit more coal, drive a bigger car, cut down some trees. Heck, I don’t know. We should turn this one over to the experts.
I know it’s a sacrifice, but just think how much the solidarity of the rest of the world will resonate with those of us condemned to spend our lives in northern climes.
Jack’s e-mail arrived a few days ago, so his weather report isn’t current. Still, who could deny that action must be taken, and urgently? Do your part by screaming around the block this afternoon in an environmentally-proactive climate improvement device.
UPDATE. The New York Times reports that the freeze is spreading:
Residents of Victoria, Tex., just off the Gulf Coast, were not dreaming yesterday when they woke up to a white Christmas.
They had one – the first in 86 years.
The NYT should have run this on the front page, as it does when things melt.
