Just reading of a spoof issue of the New York Post coming out – copies distributed in the city, and version available online. Seems to me a graeat idea; need inventiveness in trying to get message re importance of climate change, and actually taking action, across.
From the issue:Quote:It’s official. It’s getting hot down here. And if we don’t stop burning oil and coal, the Big Apple will be cooked.
According to a high tech study commissioned by a concerned Mayor Bloomberg and generously funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, climate change caused by human-created greenhouse gases is threatening the health, livelihood and security of New Yorkers—especially those who take the subway to work.
The New York City Panel on Climate Change, led by an elite team of NASA scientists and climate experts from Columbia, CUNY and Rutgers, has concluded that unless carbon emissions are drastically reduced all over the world, New York faces dangerous increases in temperature (up to 7.5 degrees), extreme weather (hurricanes and intense storms) and sea level rise (as much as 4.5 feet).
