Colorado Climate Refugees

Fort Collins police appear to be directing climate refugees to a centralized area at the CSU football stadium parking lot.

Viewed from above, you can see that many have lost everything, except for their pickup truck, hot dogs, hamburgers, barbecued chicken, potato chips, nachos, salsa, and a large aluminum container on the tailgate containing some sort of beverage which looks and tastes similar to horse piss (Coors Light perhaps?)

    I agree about Coors, when I was in Service some folks at Ft Sill would extol the virtues of that form of cow pee. I preferred “Jaks” form Louisiana.

    The drought damage is just awful.

    How can people cope?

    Not a lot of electric cars in the pictures. I don’t think that that part of CO is as big on elec cars as is CA. Speaking of elec cars, a study finds the driving of e-cars creates more pollution (and CO2?) than the driving of gas cars, and this doesn’t even consider the high carbon cost of battery manufacture and disposal, yet the hockeyschtick article notes another study: “Anders Hammer Strømman and his colleagues at NTNU have, for example, discovered that the building of an electric car causes about twice as much greenhouse gases to be emitted as during the construction of a petrol- or diesel-powered vehicle.” It’s just insane that we are paying huge subsidies to produce these vehicles… that pollute more? Absolute lunacy: http://hockeyschtick.blogspot.com/2013/09/new-study-finds-electric-vehicles-are.html
