The Benefits of Global Warming

Updated on April 12, 2013

Canadians rejoice!

Typical winter day, you wake up feeling grumpy because it's way too cold to get out of bed. After getting up you have to shovel the snow from the drive way, and clear it off the car. You also have to start your car and wait for it to warm up while you freeze your ass off. If you live up north, you know these feelings all too well. The days are short and depressing. The exciting first snow of December eventually becomes a prayer for the last snow in March... until it snows again a week later.

All the while people in California are relaxing by the beach sipping pina coladas while tanning. Is it too much to ask that we at least get to SEE a beach for more than 2 months a year? Global Warming is gods blessing for us northerners. We shouldn't be trying to stop it, in fact, we should endorse it. Embrace it. Enjoy it. Global Warming is good!

What are the benefits of Global Warming???

  • More Fresh Water - As the polar ice caps melt, we get more and more fresh water. Something Canada already has in abundance but is scarce throughout some other regions of the world. I.e. our neighbors down south. This is good for everyone, more fresh water for all! And it would help the economy as well. In fact, the Americans should get to reap the benefits as well due to NAFTA.
  • More Land - Canada is the second largest country in the world, after Russia. And yet, the population of all of Canada is less than California. It's true, check Wikipedia. This because everyone in Canada who matters lives along the south coast. Any further and the cold becomes pretty much unbearable for the average person. However, as the climate warms up, this land will actually become useful. Not only will people actually want to live there, it can be used for agriculture or recreational purposes.
  • More Productivity - The weather gets in the way of business and economy. In the winter, people get sick more often. People are late due to traffic and weather conditions. Sometimes people decide they'd rather just stay in. Overall, everyone is lazier. In Canada, since winter lasts like 8 months (more or less) that's over half the year we slack off.
  • More Money - The amount of money we spend on heating costs, plowing services, and other damages due to snow could be greatly reduced. Our cars rust because of the salt on the roads. Our roads and pavements crack. Our buildings don't survive as long. Our forests don't survive as long. Not to mention if we have longer summers in Canada tourism would increase as well. This is basically just more wealth for all.

Let's Be Realistic...

People still need to drive cars. People still need heating. people still need electricity. We need factories for production, oil for transportation, etc... The world can't just stop doing what they do. And the little green projects that are going around do nothing more than delay the effects of global warming. It is said that the way the world is going now, the temperatures will increase by about 10 degrees Fahrenheit by the end of the century. By reducing green house gasses, we'd be delaying that by what, 50 years tops? In the end, people down the road are going to have to deal with it anyway.

Let Future Generations Fix it

Historically, future generations have always been cleaning up the priors mess. This is true for everyone: Families, governments, business, and so on. And the greatest inspiration for innovation is need. When future generations NEED to deal with global warming, they'll find a way. Why worry ourselves over something we have no control over anyways? If a giant meteor was coming towards earth what would we do? Global warming is inevitable. Climate fluctuations have been going on since the beginning of the Earth. And honestly, let's be thankful we aren't heading for another ice age. That's the last thing us Canadians need.

So am I serious?

Yes. Well actually, I'm not serious about the topic of global warming, but everything I mentioned here I actually do mean. We can't stop global warming, so let's just make the best of it and carry on. I'm not saying the recent environmental movements are a bad thing, reducing pollution is good for our health. As for us trying to change global climate trends, I don't know about that.

      There could actually be a "little ice age" during the next decade or so.....http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/science-news/85... Keep in mind this was written almost two months before August 6, on that date we had some of the strongest solar activity since the 80's.

      ha ha your hub on benefits of Global Warming is really cool. Your analysis is good i must say. But my dear you need to think about other nations which were about to submerge under the seas if polar ice caps melt and water level increases. Well your style of reasoning is good.. ha ha ha.. Thanks for this complete entertaining hub.... I enjoyed reading you hub.
