You Knew This was Coming … Global Warming Extremists Blame Climate Change for Japan Earthquake and Tsunami
The Climate change folks could not even wait a day …
It was only a matter of time before the Global warming, now turned climate change extremists blamed “climate change” for the Japan 8.9 earthquake and tsunami. In the midst of the horror, death, missing persons and need for help from the world community, we are presented with stories like the following, ‘Today’s tsunami: This is what climate change looks like.’ Or worse yet, the political posturing from those on the Lefts brought to light by The Other McCain. There might be a time and place for such conversation if one is of this persuasion, this happens not to be one of them.
So far, today’s tsunami has mainly affected Japan — there are reports of up to 300 dead in the coastal city of Sendai — but future tsunamis could strike the U.S. and virtually any other coastal area of the world with equal or greater force, say scientists. In a little-heeded warning issued at a 2009 conference on the subject, experts outlined a range of mechanisms by which climate change could already be causing more earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic activity. . . .
Scientists have known for some time that climate change affects not just the atmosphere and the oceans but the earth’s crust, but these effects are not widely understood by the public.
“In the political community people are almost completely unaware of any geological aspects to climate change,” said McGuire.
As Weasel Zippers states, because earthquakes are such a recent phenomenon. The 8.9 Japan earthquake was among one of the most powerful in history; however, they key word here is history. Records go back to the 1900′s, so was cliamte change responsible for those as well? From the American Spectator comes the lunacy of such a statement of tsunamis and climate change.
So…weather’s not climate.
Unless it’s warm weather.
And one year doesn’t mean anything.
Unless it’s a warm year.
Or a dry one. Or wet . Snowy. I guess cold, too.
Then it means a lot. Oooooh baby does it. Mmm hmm.
But tsunamis, well, they don’t mean climate of course. Saying that would make the greens look really nuts. (chuckle)
Maybe the climate change alarmists might want to read, Tsunamis: Facts About Killer Waves. Tsunamis date back to the 1500′s, see where we are going?
