When the young bunnies can look up in the sky and see the sleigh tracks. When the ice is strong enough and there is enough of it that the Christmas adventure can begin.
But sadly things do not look very promising and the workshop will have to relocate soon. This is not a surprise. Eli has been shouting pay attention for a couple of decades, but others predate even his awareness.
Back in 1988, the EPA Chorus recorded "When the North Pole Melts". Yes sir, global warming was an obvious threat even then.
To hear the chorus click here
When the North Pole Starts to Melt?
What is gonna happen to his little elves?
Will they be too busy swimming to make the toys?
And what will Santa do?
If the North Pole melts too fast
Is this Christmas gonna be his last?
What will parents have to tell their girls and bays?
I used to snowski at Christmas time
But now I ski on a lake.
Scandinavia's now growing lemons and limes
And Quebec has rattlesnakes.
The Sahara desert now has grown
To the entire Continent.
But you do not have to lose your home:
Just trust the government!
But What Will Santa Do. . . . .
You may not believe my story because the ending's not very nice,
You may not believe in Santa Claus.
You may not believe in Christ,
But if you don't believe this warning
'Bout the climate and the ozone hole:
Look under your tree one Christmas morning
All you'll see are lumps of coal.
And that's what Santa will do
Well the world took care of the ozone problem, and tho the situation looks bleak politically about climate change, the elves of Zurich (the gnomes better cousins) are working that problem. Eli will have something to say about that matter tomorrow
