Iceburglary

karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: ICE berg ler ee

Sentence: The government has had to impose sanctions against many of the big companies who are contributing most to pollution and CO2 levels, since they don't care if it causes global warming, melting of icebergs, and rising sea levels 50 years from now. Why should they care? None of those people will be around! Basically their actions (or inaction) should probably be termed an iceburglary. Although speculating on future oceanfront properties in the Adirondacks might not be a bad idea....

Etymology: iceberg + burglary
