Far left New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez wrote a letter to Santa this Christmas. He’s worried that Santa may have to move due to
global warmingclimate change.
Dear Santa Claus,
I am writing out of concern, because you may have to move from the North Pole due to the dramatic melting of Arctic sea ice. The Navy’s chief oceanographer says that by the summer of 2020 the North Pole may not have summer ice and other scientists project that an ice-free Arctic is possible as soon as 2012!
Scientists overwhelmingly agree that polar ice is melting because of greenhouse gas pollution and I am working hard to reduce these emissions. But there is probably nothing we can do in time to save the North Pole. I am worried about your safety and your ability to deliver billions of Christmas gifts if the ice cap on the North Pole no longer stays frozen all year. What will happen to your house, your workshop, the elves’ houses and your reindeer barns?
The London Daily Mail today: “Britons awoke yesterday to the coldest Christmas Day on record.”
Meanwhile, back in the states, a local TV station reports that Georgia had its first white Christmas in a century; up north, fears of intense global warming have pushed the Eagles-Vikings game in Philadelphia from tonight until Tuesday.
