Yesterday’s fossil fuel powered thunderstorm cost me $70 for a new derailleur, bracket and and chain.
But it is worse than it seems. Looks like my front derailleur is also broken, so back to the store. (At least I can ride this time on my smallest chain ring.) Climate change will run me over $100 this week.
I don’t ever remember seeing a thunderstorm in Maryland below 350 PPM CO2. Of course I was never in Maryland before 2011, and there was that time in 1956 when Maryland received 1.2 inches of rain in one minute – but I wasn’t born yet.
Every single short term rainfall record in the US was set below 350 PPM CO2, but that doesn’t mean that Katherine Hayhoe shouldn’t continue to lie about it.
