They forgot the word FIRES.

I mean... Don't put any of the blame on unsustainable farming practices, like watering a literal farking desert for example...

Deforestation for crops also causes huge changes to weather patterns as well.

India is struggling with that exact problem right now. They opened up so much farmland that used to be forests, watered the hell out of it until they used it all, and now they're turning the areas into a new desert as a result.

Will someone confiscate AL Gores airplane! He's solely responsible for all climate change. I saw it on a billboard.

Good. We deserve it. F*ck us.

Not you, of course. You're cool. Just everyone else.

I don't think the average farker is responsible other just trying to store. That is more of being trapped in a system you have no control over. We are not the billionaires with power to change this. We're just the surfs realizing beans and rice and pasta is the cheapest way to stay alive...at least temporarily.

Time to invest in desalination technology.

Bodies of water? The Mississippi River is almost un-navigable in places right now. Still want to build a pipeline from it to the desert now, dopes?

Hey, so you want to see a picture of the Tetons with no snow on them, in October?  Except for that poor little glacier there that is probably not really a glacier now.
That's a bad picture because it came off my phone, but I have never seen that before.  I mean I have never seen the Tetons completely bare, at any time of year.

Sorry but I've seen this sight hundreds of times. Typical September or October photo.
Not to worry they will be white soon.

You can only stay alive temporarily.

Beans and rice and other veggies diets now will give your kids an opportunity to stay alive temporarily as well.

But we laugh and eat our future medium rare with bacon.

Well I never have bro, and I lived there for years.  Not completely bare.  So stuff it.
Your point is pointless anyway.  Jackson Hole is supposed to be one of the coldest places in the US, as well as having really bad snowy winters.  That ain't normal.  It's barely been below freezing yet.   And since I live pretty close to there, I can tell you that 70 degrees yesterday and today at my house ain't normal either. And neither is that dried up river down the road.

So now that you've let everyone know that you live in jackson Hole, go away.

Yeah, I remember all those winters when I walked to school though two feet of snow. The worst part was it was up hill both ways.

It's nice you're jealous but I wouldn't live in that hole.  Grew up near there though.
