Bipolaricity

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: b'eye-poh-ler-ih-cih-tee

Sentence: Dr. Arky Bohta had created a safe haven in Savannah, Georgia, for sufferers of what he called Bipolaricity. Since the accidental onset and melting of the two polar icecaps the psychiatrist had been meticulously documenting the increasing mood swings and paranoia of his patients. His theory was that because the human body is more than 85% water the creeping and cruising of encroaching icebergs was the reason. However, on a hot and muggy summer's day, as two ice bergs from the South and North approached Key West and the Mason-Dixon line, he noted there was high and enthusiastic response during a group brainstorming session when one patient proposed brewing and bottling something called "BiPolar Ice Tea."

Etymology: Using BIPOLAR, the psychological term for severe mood disorders with the two (North and South) or bi (from L.) poles

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

Globalwarning

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: glow ball warn ing

Sentence: Globalwarning of rapid carbon release from the earth should encourage measures such as a return to using renewable energy sources such as water power, wind power, even solar power. Certain industries and populations must reduce their carbon emissions, or we will continue to see ocean water levels rise, bizarre weather; and ultimately experience continued loss of animal and human life...leading to extinction.

Etymology: From the words "globalwarming" and "warning". A term that warns that our problem of globalwarming needs immediate attention and change over to using "green", earth-friendly energies. This is our globalwarning!

Hydraulicreep

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: high-DRALL-ick-REAP

Sentence: “I can’t stand Venice” said Florence- as she revved up her gross SUV- she resisted downsizing- as the waters kept rising- her error was failing to sea! Denial and tears came in torrents- we were singing a CO2 dirge- our years of excess- caused a wet sloppy mess- now all we can do is submerge. For years some had tried to persuade us- That the problem was oil and coal- But a global guffaw- Caused the glaciers to thaw- Now HYDRAULICREEP’s out of control.

Etymology: HYDRAULIC+CREEP=HYDRAULICREEP..........HYDRAULIC: operated, moved, or effected by means of water, of or relating to water or other liquid in motion; Latin hydraulicus, from Greek hydraulikos, from hydraulis hydraulic organ, from hydr- + aulos reed instrument [1661].....CREEP: to enter or advance gradually so as to be almost unnoticed, to change shape permanently from prolonged stress or exposure to high temperatures, to go very slowly; Middle English crepen, from Old English crēopan; akin to Old Norse krjūpa to creep [before 12th century].

Good sentence! Good word! - silveryaspen, 2009-03-16: 17:28:00
