Warm Feeling Not Necessarily Good Feeling

"Everybody has this uneasy feeling. This is weird. This is not good. It's a guilty pleasure. You're out enjoying this nice March weather, but you know it's not a good thing."
—National Center for Atmospheric Research climate scientist Jerry Meehl discusses the unseasonable weather we have been experiencing recently. To wit: "Temperatures in the lower 48 states were 8.6 degrees above normal for March and 6 degrees higher than average for the first three months of the year, according to calculations by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. That far exceeds the old records." The good news is that at least we get to ride out our few remaining years without having to trudge through ice and snow as our failing, overfed bodies struggle to cope with the devastating damage we have done to the planet. The bad news? I'm going with "fires." There's gonna be lots of fires.

I'm trying to picture John Cusack or Jeff Goldblum conveying this feeling, surrounded by unaware, happy-go-lucky New Yorkers in Central Park, in Hollywood's next climate-change-apocalypse thriller. It's really all to easy. Cue Inception booms. And scene.

NOTHING GOOD CAN COME OF THIS!

It's important to note that this unusual winter heat is mostly a North America phenomenon. Much of the rest of the Northern Hemisphere has been cold… Ha Ha, Stupid Europe. Damn progressives don't know how to foul up their climate!

Are we saying we'd prefer to be eaten by zombies in cold weather? I, for one, can't wait to be eaten by a zombie while getting an AMAZING tan.

Like some of us, I enjoy messages like this much more when they're delivered in the form of rhyming poetry:

The Earth keeps turning, night and day, spit-roasting all the tanned
Tired icebergs and the polar bears, which makes white almost contraband.
The biosphere on a rotisserie emits a certain sound
That tells the stars that Earth was moaning pleasure while it drowned.
