I read an article recently that discussed how cities would be impacted with climate change in the near term - say 50 years. Many of the northern cities actually came out ahead as the climate improved (warmer years) while those areas that are considered desirable today along the Southern and Western coastlines were either too hot or under water. Those who live in the north may have the last laugh...

While I am half joking..I often tell people that if this mild winter is from global warming, then I welcome it!

I remember as a kid on vacation circa 1961 as we drive into SF seeing all those 'ticky tacky' houses, it looked very monotonous then, perhaps because it was pretty new, now I drive up there and it's softened quite a bit-landscape/trees mature, people make changes to their houses, and I'll bet a lotta that happened in the first Levittowns. Now I'm thinkin of that other song 'Little Pink Houses' -John Mellencamp.
