I'm getting sick of people focusing on the downside of global warming. Wah, species will be wiped out and disease will run rampant. Boo hoo. I wish they would just quit whining, and focus on the benefits this all could have for us. Think of all the job opportunities that could arise from the effects of global warming. Global warming could be that boost we need to overcome this economic collapse. To get the ball rolling, I've suggested a few jobs that could be implemented once global warming nears its peak.
Polar Bear Taxi Drivers
According to science, polar bears are drowning because they have to swim longer distances to get to the grocery market and the local Redbox. Instead of watching polar bears succumbing to a premature, watery grave while attempting to deliver a cup of sugar to their neighbor, why not offer safe voyage through the use of taxi drivers? Now, I know what you’re thinking: “But Chiz, taxi cabs don’t float!” Well, what if we substituted boats for sedans? The polar bears could offer fish scales or seal skin as currency in order to gain access to the taxi boats. I mean, they’ll eventually have to create a self-sustaining economy based on their currency, and exchange rates would have to be eventually calculated, but that’s the easy part. Voila! No more soggy polar bear corpses clogging up the ocean!

Science also states that an increase in the ocean’s temperature by 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit would be enough to wipe out 97 percent of the world’s coral reefs. I’m thinking because that’s just too hot for them. So, imagine this: say you have a pizza that’s too hot, what do you do? You blow on it to cool it down, correct? That’s essentially what this job will entail. If the ocean seems to be getting a bit too warm, ocean blowers will flock to the beach and blow on the water until it is the appropriate temperature. With enough of these workers, we may be able to save the coral reefs.

Integrating Species Coordinator
Another effect of global warming is the northward migration of certain animals and alpine plants to cooler climates. With all this integration, things have the probability of getting out of hand. Therefore, it is imperative that we employ integrating species coordinators (ISCs) to ease the tensions. When red foxes start inhabiting arctic fox regions, tensions may begin to rise. However, throw an ISC into the mix, and he’ll quickly get to work engaging the foxes in intramural activities to repair the racial tensions and reveal that, aside from appearance, they aren’t all that different.

Alright the name could use some work, but according to some more science, plants may begin blooming before pollinating insects—such as bees—become active. Therefore, we’re going to need a staff to go wake up these bees so that they can get to work. We can’t sit idly by as the bees slumber through the season of plant love-making. They need to get out there and fellatiate some flowers or whatever it is they do.

There you have it, and these are just a few of the job opportunities that can be employed. Think of the current businesses that will thrive like never before such as sunscreen and gas mask manufacturers. I, for one, think we should continue living the way we are and let global warming run its course. More people will jump on the bandwagon when they see the benefits it has on the economy; I'm sure of it.
