They're called floods, hurricanes, typhoons.

Wait until the jellyfish are living in our lakes, and you'll realize just how serious this is.  And we already know about the sharks.

I put a shell to my ear and the ocean spoke to me and said, "burn more coal".

Dammit. Don't worry. I've been assured all that incremental change we've been expecting will come along and we'll be good.

And just to top it all off the equatorial trade winds are intermixing and the magnetic poles are in a slow process of flipping on top of a mass anthropogenic extinction event.
And then there's Disney+ which is in a league of it's own

That's one hell of a case of dementia.

Can we just give it some thorazine to stop it getting angry?

"Thermal inertia". Yup. Anybody remember the specific heat of water/calorimeter lab in chem 1A? Think of a really big styrofoam cup🤔

Weather forecasting in the future will be and Doppler radar says another beautiful, oh Cat 5 state killer Hurricane just appeared. Florida you've got 15 minutes to prepare. I'm heading for the bunker.

Poor ocean, it's precious old memories are now only coming through in waves.

"...wandering into random houses..."

Now that you mention it Subby. It's actually getting a bit aggressive.

Its lips move, but I can't hear what they're saying.

there actually are freshwater jellies and they're pretty well distributed around at least the northern hemisphere.

We aren't doing shiat.  You can't just stop using stuff when you've already put so much money and time into it!
Drill baby, drill!

The plans include conventional drilling and fracking spanning the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the foothills of the Front Range in Colorado and the mountainous Appalachian region. But the heart is the Permian basin, a geological formation 250 miles wide that sits under the mostly flat terrain of west Texas and New Mexico.
One lobe of this formation, known as the Delaware basin, is predicted to emit 27.8bn metric tons of carbon during the lifetime of planned drilling, while another, known as the Midland basin, will potentially unleash 16.6bn tons of emissions.
It means the US, the centre of the world's addiction to oil and gas, will play an outsized role in the heatwaves, droughts and floods that will impact people around the planet.

Oh good, an excuse to use this one:

Preacher: Sir, do you believe in the hereafter?
Old Man: Yes son, I do believe in the hereafter.
Preacher: Tell me sir, why do you believe in the hereafter?
Old Man: Well son, when I'm in my house, I get up, go into another room, then look around and say "Now what was I hereafter?"

What are you, some kind of radical communist? Planning for the future could slightly lower short-term corporate profit!

Nice headline, Subby. It's metaphorically correct, the best kind of correct although the nerds and geeks go with technical and academic correctness because they would.
