Global warming has SEC speed

Much like Michigan without its wolverines, the state of Ohio seems to be losing its buckeyes. The trees that sprout the poisonous nut are dying out and moving north because of your friend and mine, global warming. After all, like all things under the “buckeye” name, they’re just too slow to compensate.

Save The Buckeye, a coalition of environmental activists and outdoor enthusiasts, has a billboard in Columbus warning about the fate of the buckeye tree, and backers plan to hold rallies during football tailgating events. They’re hoping to channel Ohio pride into environmental awareness and action.

“People had thought of global warming as something far away, affecting polar bears,” said Tom Bullock, an advocate for the Pew Environment Group in Ohio. “If we don’t get started now we will reduce the opportunity to reduce global warming and curb its worst effects.”

Now, if only global warming will force Ohio State fans to get the hell out of Hilton Head and back to their Yankee lakes and streams. Then, we could get teh gheys from London to come.
