I love global warming. Think of it, crops growing like mad, non arable land made arable, jungles growing wild, warming rising oceans just teaming with life. Might be the best thing humans have ever done. The worst part might be all that extra bird poo on downtown street (according to noted climate expert lisa helps)
Part of the problem, Mayor Lisa Helps said, is that drier summers linked to global warming mean there’s less summer rain to help wash away the droppings.
“Really, this was the biggest concern we heard — and not only from our residents but from people visiting here,” Helps said during recent budget deliberations.
“This is a perfect example — an unfortunate one — of the impact of climate change on cities,” she said. “We’re going to have hotter, drier summers and there will be costs associated with that. Hence, the need to try to mitigate our impact on the climate so we can bring down some of the expenses.”
Which will of course be more than offset with an extra 2 weekends of summer weather for tourists and less in the snow removal budget. And smaller heating bills for City buildings.
