I thought to myself one day, “Leaks, what does the average man (or woman) on the street think about global warming. So, after canvassing the streets of St. John’s I realized I wasn’t going to be able to find an ‘average’ person there, I decided to drive West.

After 6 hours, I headed to Triton; a speck on the map, in ‘Scenic Green Bay’.

Walking up and down the street in town I found “Mr. Roberts”, and he agreed to answer a few questions:

Leak: “How old are you, and where are you from!”
Mr. Roberts: “76 years young, and from right here…”

Leak: “So, what do you think about this ‘Global Warming’?”
Mr Roberts: “I’m tired of the cold, I say raise the bloody temperature! I won’t have to cut as much wood for next winter.”

Leak: “And the fact that the oceans could rise as much as 200 feet if the polar ice caps melt?”
Mr. Roberts: “That’s okay b’y, me house is pretty high up. The lops would have to be higher than 200 feet to reach er. ”

Leak: “What about the theory that the fish stock will start moving and find different spawning grounds? The cod might relocate.”
Mr. Roberts: “Well good, I’m tired of Cod. The melting ice might send down some Nor’dern Char! Smoked Char’s some good b’y…”

Leak: “Okay but, with all this melting freshwater, the salt level in the oceans will go down, the ocean could freeze entirely during the winter!”
Mr. Roberts: “Dats alright b’y, I’ve always wanted to see where me mudder was born. I’ll break in me new Ski Doo by taking it over to Lushes Bight, and then on to Ireland…s’pose I should bring extra gas.”

So, there you have it, when life hands you Lemons, make Lemonade. How does the average man on the street feel about Global Warming? I dunno but, this guys got the right attitude…
