The presidential election in the United States is two weeks from tomorrow.
So…lets talk about the weather. It’s the safest subject I know of, and one everyone can agree on. If it’s raining, it’s raining; if it’s not, it’s not. Right?
If I were a political pundit, I might need to make the case that it rained “really hard this morning,” while my opponent might say “it was really just a trickle.” Was it a shower or a downpour? It all depends on who you ask.
Some may say “It was less than an inch,” while shaking their head in dismay. Others will exclaim, “Wow…we got close to an inch of rain!” while grinning like a Cheshire cat.
A reporter might follow-up with, “Is global warming responsible for this erratic weather?”
“Global warming is likely the culprit,” says one party.
“Global warming is a myth,” rebuts the other.
I walked out my front door today and discovered a cool, wet and long-overdue fall morning. On that at least, the greenest party would agree.
