It turns out that there is actually a silver lining in this ongoing Global Warming evolution. In a recent study published by the Union of Concerned Scientists, the likely impacts of climate change on the Northeastern states was dressed up in a fine bit of well-meaning glossed-up marketing literature.
So all I need to do now is bide my time and hope for the “high emissions scenario” to come true. Of course we’ll also have to deal with those pesky issues surrounding things like eroding coast lines as sea levels rise and over-strained power grids due to unprecedented air conditioning loads in the interim.
But if there is still a Boston to live in by 2050, at least it will be more like the balmy southeast. Perhaps for their next report, those concerned scientists might focus on the southeast which will either vanish under the waves or become sub-tropical if they really want to tug on the heart-strings.
