This video is a lie. We got snow over the weekend.
Fucking global WARMING hucksters.
Our snow didn't stick either. (I'm in Seattle.) But still... we got snow.
But yeah.... the weather this year is beyond weird. I'd like to say that this is the new normal, with a smug, knowing nod of my head, but... it's probably not. At least not totally. El ninho accounts for a lot of the weirdness.
(Yes, el ninho totally accounts for the warm weather on the Atlantic seaboard. Totally!)
Pretty sure in Portland and surrounding area, it's the hottest average year in history.
Yeah it's been incredibly mild. This time last year it was around 15 degrees and we're at 40 right now. I always know it's warm when I forget where I put my winter hat. But warm or not it's been crazier than I ever remember it.
I'm back in Olympia and while that past few days have been alright, the past few months have been an uncharacteristic deluge.

Yes, if only people didn't watch movies then something something responsible industrial practices.
I for one am happy that I got to live in the time period when we got to enjoy all the benefits of obliterating our fragile planet, but before the consequences really began to kick in and things got all Mad Max on us.
i'm not happy that you got to live at all
OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH (animated gif goes here)

Don't worry, the rich will be just fine.
Just imagine the boon to business when those northern shipping lanes open up for trade with China.
What's interesting is that the last big weather-related disaster I remember experiencing first-hand was in Portland sometime in the 90s, when the weather patterns were fairly similar. Unlike other disasters like Katrina where the rich people were spared, rich people were pretty much the only ones affected by record-setting rainfall (which was just surpassed a few days ago) causing their houses on the hill to slide right down the hills or the volcano. Given their natural rich-person influence, you'd think they'd have something to say about how this hadn't happened for 100+ years and then happened again just the other day, because people tend to listen to rich white folks.
They can have their islands. The changing seas will surely produce superintelligent sharks.
