I was going to make this a “Friday Funny”, but there’s really nothing funny about it.
Really, you can’t make this up. Eric Holthaus, the guy who said he’d get a vasectomy to solve climate change, cried about it after reading the AR5 IPCC report and gave up flying to save the planet, because that would somehow prevent hurricanes, is now hoping the Caribbean will get whacked by one.
It will solve the drought.
From the Slate article titled: Folks in the Caribbean Should Be Hoping for a Hurricane
Most Caribbean economies are closely tied to the tourist trade, and hurricane season is traditionally the time when the influx of beachgoers slows.
So while the tourists are at home, folks in the Caribbean are welcoming a deluge. As Atlantic hurricane season enters its peak August-to-October phase, the best bet for relief at this point is a direct hit by a tropical storm or hurricane.
Let’s see…what’s easier to manage and less destructive to an island economy?
a. water shortage
b. massive hurricane damage
The stupid from this guy, it burns white hot like magnesium.
