Olympia, WA to Spend $500,000 to Accommodate Global Warming

The city council of Olympia, Washington has voted to spend $500 thousand to raise its planned city hall building by 12 inches. This in order to avoiding flooding the building when Puget Sound rises in response to melting landmass ice from global warming.

Actually, I think they should put the building on wheels so that it can flee the next glaciation, which, according to Where Was Al Gore When Greenland Got It's Name III?, is just as likely as warming.

A less expensive alternative would be to mark the southbound highways as Ice Age Escape Routes. If the odds really do shift along the lines Al Gore is selling, they could be repainted to reflect the rising surf.
