I know that thinking about Al Gore could ruin my Thanksgiving dinner. This piece is just a seasonal excuse for a Liberal rant.

And people think watching the “educational” pravda media channels makes them smarter.

Read a book. Preferably one that predates Karl Marx.

If by climate change, they mean global warming that melts the polar ice caps, how will there be water shortages?

No, but learning that your Aunt who’s hosting Thanksgiving dinner used the turkey baster to impregnate her lifepartner might.

Thanksgiving Day foods could eventually be affected

Warmer temperatures can impact turkey meat

Water shortages could also lead to more costly

Climate change could one day affect the cost and quality

dry turkey meat along with expensive fruits, vegetables and potatoes could be on the horizon

The usual star of the Thanksgiving Day feast, roast turkey, could suffer in quality as a result.

"Climate change could affect meat quality in two ways

Shut the hell up, Al.

Yes, we know it's you.

Save Thanksgiving! Support left-wing psuedo-science and fraudulent data about global warming and you’ll still be able to eat Turkey. Oppose us and you’ll be drinking ditch water and eating beans and rice when you’re lucky.

Be afraid. Your families heads are going to bake in the heat unless Algore and Soros get to make billions trading carbon credits.

And they claimed that the "Red Menace" was all built on unfounded hype and hysteria. The Green Menace is built on lies. Lies from socialist red diaper doper babies.

Those solar waves on the sun are bigger than the Earth. Man's control on the climate (deliberate or accidental) is miniscule at best.

Thanksgiving is defined by me as a state of mind for being THANKFUL and not by the food I eat....

If I’m starving and eat the bark off a tree, trust me, I’ll be thankful that some bark is available...

JMO..

Yeah, so to solve this issue of increasing food costs let’s create brand spanking new taxes. Because after all, adding costs to the supply chain is the surest way to decrease costs.....

We'll just have to start using mine shafts for farming. Nuclear reactors could provide power almost indefinitely. Greenhouses could maintain plant life. Turkeys could be bred and slaughtered.

Could Climate Change Ruin Thanksgiving Dinner?

It could, the weather is unusually cold in California! We like our T-Days sunny and mild like it used to be ten years ago.

Looks like we still have that rogue CO2 fueled cold dome hovering over California.

I'm glad I didn't live during the Medieval warming period. Apparently turkey meat back then sucked.

Or maybe it could have sucked or possibly might have sucked or then it may have sucked.

Oh what the heck, we're doomed.

Didn't I see a recipe for cockroaches and chickpeas. I hope man-made global warming doesn't affect the taste of cockroaches.

This is perfect. Now I can wish you a Happy Thanksgiving on a thread from the day before the big event.

It never got above 1.4 degrees here on Thanksgiving. A little global warming would have been nice.

I’m just glad the deep-fried T-giving turkey fad has simmered down (so to speak), I was getting tired of the stories of house fires caused by wussies trying the maneuver in their garages with the door open.
