Groundhog Day Shadows in a world of climate change!

Groundhog photo by Jonathan Schechter,  Summer of 2012
And yes, groundhogs climb trees!


Groundhog Day! And that brings the same old question:  What does it mean if  this
creature  sees or does not see its shadow on Feb 2nd?

Here is the answer!

If the groundhogs sees its shadow it means climate change is real,
global warming is not myth.
Ice caps are melting,  glaciers retreating,  sea water  rising, more drought and dust storms, warming
 oceans, changing rain and snow and storm patterns and wildfires become more severe.
Humans that deny these facts are out of tune with the reality of science.
The science of climate change is complex, but the basics are simple:   Earth is heating up because
 gases produced by  our vehicles, power plants and other sources are building up in the atmosphere
 and act like a heavy blanket over Planet Earth.
And without science we live in fantasy world of myth.

Very clever analysis and a great photo. Where was it taken? I have never seen them far from a hole in the ground.

To answer your question, Brandon Twp Michigan, almost in my backyard. And groundhogs often climb trees; especially to get mulberry leaves
