The Boston Globe recently carried a story about global climate change. The science predicts the weather in Boston will be like Maryland. Is that bad?

Lately, we have been told that the planet will no longer support human life in 12 years if we don't make radical changes to the way we live. But an article in the Boston Globe says it will actually feel like Baltimore in Boston.

I could stand a little Baltimore weather right now in Massachusetts. Unfortunately, I will have to wait until 2080 for this change. I will be dead before then.

On the one hand, we have the Democrats telling us we must stop using fossil fuels immediately or we will all die, and yet an actual scientist is telling us that we will be forced to live as if Massachusetts is Maryland in 60 years.

If we don't do anything, we end up like Maryland.

However, there is hope for us still.

According to the study, under a "reduced-emissions scenario...Boston in 2020 will feel like a community a little farther north..."

That northern community is the town of Aberdeen, Maryland.

Either way, we are going to feel like Maryland in Massachusetts if we live another 60 years. Doesn't sound so bad to me.
