April Showers bring May Flowers, “May”be?

5 min read

Normally, April showers bring May flowers such as Tulips, Daffodils, or Hyacinths that are flowers that bloom in the spring. So with the recent climate change dilemma you may not be seeing these common flowers when you expect because of our newly elected presidents denial of climate change all around the world. Now you may be seeing these flowers earlier than expected and there are cases that go back to 1852 and 1935 in Wisconsin and Massachusetts when flowers were blooming 2.3 days earlier for every 1 degree Fahrenheit (1). Also, in some other places in the United States, Spring came 3 weeks early. If the flowers do not catch up to the changes in the environment from the lack of winter temperatures they will eventually stop reproducing and causing new flowers to bloom each year in the Spring. The Spring Equinox is the first day of spring and its where the Night and Day about the same length. There have been a 30% increase in ocean acidity since the Industrial Revolution and 16 out of 17 of the warmest years recorded back to 2001(2).

Our Ignorant President that is in denial of the facts because its not effecting him personally at this moment in time.













Spring Flowers Freezing over in Spring because of recent Climate Changes.












Our outspoken “president” has taken to the internet to exclaim his pleas for this country. Which has worked out effectively well for the twitter community since it’s an incredible source. He really does have a excellent voice for speaking about his issues, in terms of personal status of course. While bathing in his egotistical cloak.


His liable podium for his output

If you wouldn’t have guessed, he denies climate change by the looks of this article. The Paris Agreement was a agreement within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) dealing with greenhouse gas emissions, adaption, and finance starting in the year 2020. “Syria and Nicaragua, the only remaining non-signatories of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, have now signed. Should the US leave as promised, it would be the only country in the world outside the agreement.” (3)  Trump has denied climate change and screwed the whole nation. Yet in spite of that, he taunts with the idea of global warming.

Samuel L. Jackson

If the President does not face the facts we are going to make Global Warming increase and cause drastic environmental changes just because he doesn’t want to put money towards this issue. At this rate the polar bears will have no homes and we won’t have flowers in the spring to enjoy. So if our president doesn’t get his act together we’re essentially doomed for future generations to come.
