Can’t you wait for the weather to warm!
Won’t it be grand when almost everyone is smearing SPF 65 over their bodies before they exit the house?
It will be exciting to see massive storms, longer droughts, and gargantuan floods!
If you’ve always wanted to live by the beach,
You need not worry, with accelerating sea levels, you may find yourself closer to one in no time.
And if spring is your favorite season, you’re in luck
Spring is coming sooner,
Though don’t worry about the changes of earth’s ecosystems,
This will cause pollinators like those pesky little bees to die out (along with many of the crops we eat).
And with all the insects that won’t be killed off from cold temperatures,
We can expect them to flourish longer and infest our homes,
Great news for bug catchers!
With more wildfires from the rising heat, we’ll always have a readily available campfire to roast our s’mores.
What fun it will be to see people rush to create inventions to produce fresh water,
We’ll need it of course as the glaciers melt and fresh water becomes scarce.
Although, it is a pity, for those who won’t survive these changes.
But forget the deaths,
The deaths of the creatures that inhabit this planet.
With a mass extinction, earth will have niches available to create new species!
What a time to be alive in!
If humans survive that is…
But hey, can’t you wait for the weather to warm?
From the scalding and dry lands of Southern California, Sarah moved to Alaska looking for adventure! In her free time Sarah enjoys painting, and other various forms of art. The ability to get lost in a seemingly impossible journey, or become entranced by sly fae, make fiction her favorite genre to read. Sarah is a young soul, still learning and grasping what it truly means to be human. Social interaction isn’t her strongest point, but she more than welcomes friendly folk to strike up a conversation.
