10 new names for 'Global Warming'

One of the biggest reasons so many people don't believe the world is warming is because the terms "global warming" and "climate change" are too weak. If we're going to get more people on board, we need a better name for what's going on. Here are my top ten choices:

  • Catastrophic climate chaos.
  • Weather wackiness.
  • Global oh-crap.
  • Climate we're fucked.
  • Climate change change change change change.
  • Global microwaving.
  • Global baking.
  • The coming cannibalism crisis.
  • Global grand mal seizure.
  • Fuck yeah, climate change!

So, think any of those will do the trick?

It's my birthday, and I am blessed many, many wonderful friends around the world. a freelance writing career that means I get to do good every single day. sharing my life with an amazing woman. living surrounded by the beauty of nature. surviving long enough to understand that 42 really is the answer to life, the universe and everything. relatives I love and admire. words that set me free. art. music.
...and by life.

Have a slice of cake today in my honor!

  • A new place to live (six major floods in four-plus years is six too many)
  • A new client or two (or the promised new jobs from current clients that haven't materialized yet)
  • A hug from an orangutan (any primate will do)
  • A nice shoulder massage (too many hours in front of the keyboard)
  • A Wi-Fi enabled Blu-Ray player (Netflix streaming, baby!)
  • Someone to take some of my comic books off of my hands (more go out with next week's recycling; they're too hard to sell these days)
  • A nice reading lamp (why are they so hard to find?)
  • My dressy coat (it's hiding in a box here somewhere...)
  • Any art by F.G. Cooper (I'm obsessed with this obscure 1930s cartoonist)
  • Time to listen to Robbie Robertson's new album (released today!)
  • Dinner plans for this weekend (you in?)
  • Time to draw my next mini-comic (the deadline for the Maine Comic Arts Festival approaches!)
  • More time to blog (I've got some stuff to get off of my chest!)
