11 Facts About Climate Change That You Should Take Into Consideration When You Vote On Tuesday

This is more than about the next four years, this is about the future of the planet.

11 Facts About Climate Change That You Should Take Into Consideration When You Vote On Tuesday

During the last debate, Biden was slammed after proposing his "radical" idea for completely getting rid of oil as an energy resource and adapting to renewable energies. Many Americans are frightened of the idea of so many workers in these industries losing their jobs, and while their fears are valid, science suggests that these industries will likely be obsolete in the next 50 years, so we need to be adapting our infrastructure to support renewable energy regardless. If you're voting in the 2020 presidential election, I urge you to consider these scientifically-backed facts about climate change when casting your vote as well as doing your own research beyond this. The decisions we make in the next 4-8 years will impact everyone. It's time to start thinking about our future and holding government officials accountable for passing policies that benefit the environment and humanity as a whole.

7. The fires across the western U.S. and Australia have been linked to climate change. 

(AKA: The frequency and intensity of the fires across the western U.S. are not a product of "poor forest management")

While it is good to be wary of how our individual actions impact our environment, we have to hold our government accountable for creating a cleaner, better future for all of us. It's not too late yet, but we're certainly cutting it close.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true.

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me?
