((Actually, global warming isn't the correct name for it, it is known scientifically as "human-accelerated climate change".

But this definitely makes a statement, well done! And well-deserved DD :heart: ))

Where's the like button to this? =) Because that's exactly what it is. Human-accelerated.
Because the global warming would come, sooner or later (I mean, seriously, it's not the first time this is happening...), we're "just" speading things up a bit...

Love the picture anyways =D

"1. the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning: the irony of her reply, “How nice!” when I said I had to work all weekend."
The irony of the statement was that the imagery of the picture is so obvious, one would not expect someone to say "I don't get it." Therefor, the statement is ironic because it is the opposite of the expected reaction (ie, someone 'getting it').
Hey, you're right. I have no idea what this 'iron-ic' is.

well, it's supposed to mean: 'excessive use of fossil fuels makes earth suffers'.
(example: gas & petroleum, coal)
and it actually oven our earth inside out.
for me anyways...

This is what would happen if I were doing this:

My mom:"GET THE PICTURE GET THE PICTURE!!!! DID YOU GET IT?!?!?!"
Me: "Nope, not yet Mom. Hold on!"
Mom: "HURRY!!! IT'S BURNING!!!"
Me: "That's the point."
Mom: *pours water*
Me: "I didn't get it!"
Mom: "Too bad!"
