Advice for the Climate Change

Manolo says, here from one of the Manolo’ s many internet friends, is the unusual question for the shoeblogger.

Hello Manolo!

Can you tell me with the warming of the globe will we all be wearing sandals 24/7 or just in the summer months? My husband is the shoe designer of the cold weather footwear here in Portland, Oregon so I am worried he might need to switch categories. Please advise.

Love you, love you, love you, Manolo!

Although the Manolo is the creature of the sun, who prefers to avoid the worst of the weather of the winter, he does not believe he would enjoy the perpetual summer. Indeed, variety, even the variety of the climate, it is the spicing of life.

However, if it comes to pass that the globe should warm, the Manolo would suggest to the Bridget and her husband that they should not change the occupations.

In the stead, perhaps, they should move to the north, maybe first to the Seattle, and then to Anchorage, and finally, if the warming it becomes too bad, to the Barrow. This should should the trick do.

    La BellaDonna, she suggests that the Bridget’s husband may want to broaden his range briefly, but not to worry! Once the global warming, it has melted enough of the polar ice, the Gulf Stream, which gives us the predictable climate, it will shut down, and we will have the new ice age, and the husband of the Bridget, his cold weather footgear will be much in demand.

    The Fausta, she’s ready for the warming. She’s been ready for years.

    I like fall and winter because I love wearing boots, coats & jackets…and the thought of bugs year round totally skeeves me.

    Hmmmm, I think it might have been taken in my back yard…

    The desertwind is sooooooo not ready for summer.

    The Annalucia, she agrees with the Phyllis about the cold versus the hot weather. The Chicago winter does not offer many pleasures, but one of them is the complete lack of insects, and for that she is willing to shovel the snow and wear the long johns from the Winter Silks.

    She will also add the Barrow to her very short list of Possible Places to Retire To When She Becomes Old and Crochety. At the moment the only other candidate is the Tooele, Utah. She has chosen it purely for its name: all the annoying and unpleasant people of her acquaintance will look at it and say, “How do you pronounce THAT?” and will refrain from visiting because they will not want to risk the embarrassment of mispronouncing the name.

    Global warming wouldn’t mean that it would get warmer everywhere, just the average temperature of the earth would go up. The main problem with that is it might change the weather patterns, so for all we know, it could get colder in Oregon.

    Al Gore believes in Global Warming. He took political fashion advice from Naomi Wolf……
    Hmmmm, I think Michael Crichton’s book “State of Fear” must have it right then, global bunk for money and power.

    Thank you belladonna for the ray of hope. I would love to have a second ice age. And, Michael Crichton is full of shit.

    Hmmm, nothing like the good discussion on the logic of a scientific position.

    And may your mother run out from underneath the porch and pee on your shoes.
    No, I apologise. The shoes are innocent.

    Even in Anchorage we see a bit of global warming. The snow didn’t come until November this year!

    Nice picture of Joshua Tree NP!
