Global Warming Threatens Santa Claus
Few are talking about, but the truth is out there.The article is actually quite amusing, subsequent comments however are not:
Santa Claus is in deep do do.
As global warming melts his Arctic homes, Rudolph and his brother and sister reindeer are under threat, along with - polar bears, ice-dwelling seals and several forms of Arctic vegetation - not to mention the many indigenous human inhabitants of the area.
Many people kill themselves at Christmas thinking of these things. Do nature a favour, don't kill yourself but kill somebody richer and who consumes more.A later comment refers to the seriously cool Norad Tracks Santa webpage (www.noradsanta.org) however notes:
Every year NORAD also assign airforce fighter jets to track Santa across their airspace. They have this cute little website where you can watch SantaCams on board fighter-bombers. Seemingly they have been busy tracking Santa for 50 years, perhaps this helps explain why they were so unprepared for 911.Can you say "bah humbug"?
And anyway, I thought global warming was supposed to lead to global cooling, or something like that.
Anyway, I was for global warming before I was against it.
