Ice Free Washington DC

Ice Free Washington DCThere is a lot of talk about Global Warming, or as I like to call it “Earth Cancer” – that we’re heating up the planet to unsustainable amounts.

Most of the evidence seems vague and far off, like a one degree jump in temperatures or far-off polar caps melting faster. None of that feels local or immediate.

Today I felt Global Warming’s quick and personal impact. I felt the heat, up close and instantly. I felt it when I went looking for ice – there wasn’t any!

That’s right, this is the ice chest at the Bling Bling Giant, empty like three other stores I checked. No ice means no cold mojitos, and that’s just intolerable.

So get with Al Gore, and stop your SUV love. The world cannot tolerate a hot, summer day ice-less. No you, not me, and not DC.
