Welcome to Pennsylbama

Good news if you're a fan of the south: soon we'll be getting their weather right here in Western PA! According to a new study from a group called The Union of Concerned Scientists, if we don't change our environmental ways, you can kiss goodbye to fun activites like skiing, snowmobiling, and breathing:

"According to that report, Western Pennsylvania's climate will resemble the current climate in Alabama if emissions continue to grow, with 20 to 25 days each summer with above-100-degree temperatures and 60 days a year with temperatures above 90."
-Pittsburgh Post Gazette

While "The Union of Concerned Scientists" is an enjoyable name for a group (it's like a slightly less-cool version of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen), this is unsettling news. Like we need to spend more 90-plus degree days riding to work on the bus, sitting between two dudes who are making their own man-gravy, Alabama-style.

Now, if you'll excuse us, we need to get our non-working appliances and rusted cars out onto the front lawn.
