Sure, blame the Nordic’s.
Okay I will. But mainly because Odin is an asshole
Riiiight, Odin… as compared to, say, Loki? The professional wrench-in-the-works-of-the-universe, just because he felt crotchety?
Or compared to other gods? Like maybe Zeus, the deific equivalent of Bill Clinton and Dick Nixon rolled together?
Yeah, sure. Odin’s a jerk. Until you compare him to most other gods.
Because people appreciate what they know.
I agree with you! My mom is from Norway and went to California.
Her brother went to CANADA! They had to tunnel through the damn snow!
Where is there global warming??
they can’t decide if it’s going to freeze over or boil over so i think the proper term is climate change…
*minor weather nerd pipes up*
If I may hazard a guess, we’ll be having a bit of both. The Gulf Stream flows from the Gulf of Mexico with its warm currents up towards Europe. If the caps melt, the cold water will cause the flow to stop, because if the water is all relatively the same temperature, the movement of hot to cold/cold to hot shall cease. (put milk in your hot coffee, and watch as the cold milk and hot coffee battle it out, the process is similar with polar ice and the Gulfstream) As the heat will not be well-conducted from the Gulf, it increases. As the warm currents and warm air do not reach Europe, it chills. USA gets the warming, and Europe a 2nd ice age.
Meanwhile the Jet Stream gets weaker and more chaotic, instead of moving mostly straight (generally one bend) over the US bringing water to the Great Plains and keeping weather mostly reasonable, it now pops north and south like a jumprope, moving cold air south, warm air north, and dumping far more of it’s water on the Rockies instead of the Plains.
If it keeps up, Iowa and Kansas will have the rainfall of New Mexico.
OTOH, central Canada should be OK, and the warming will turn it into a breadbasket to replace the agricultural output we will lose as the US breadbasket fails.
…Looking at the date on this strip, there is NO WAY that’s a Homestuck reference. It would be awesome if it were, though.
Oh hey, yeah.
… Jin would probably be the Witch of Doom.
And then we have one of the first recorded PR flacks, naming the newly discovered “Greenland”..
