Another (near) disaster caused by “Global Warming”
Sometimes you just have to shake your head when, yet another, seemingly unrelated event gets blamed on “climate change” nee “global warming”. (We’ve listed some, who-wudda-thunk-it, things caused by global warming here.)
Well here’s one that even I didn’t see coming: the US Airways crash in the Hudson. That’s right, the Miracle on the Hudson was, in part, caused by our selfishly large carbon footprint. As reported by Time magazine:
While officials use radar and radio collars to track bird populations, habitat destruction and climate change have disrupted migratory patterns. Moreover, the populations of certain species of birds are increasing at rapid rates, thanks to changes in food supply.
So you see, people who unthinkingly produce more carbon than the “planet” can sustain caused ‘climate change’ which caused habitat destruction, which disrupted migratory patterns, which caused the birds to fly into the plane’s engines, which caused the crash. And there it is.
So don’t you now feel guilty about putting thos people on the plane through such a near-death experience? And what about those people on the plane? How long do you think it will take before some environmentalist wacko proclaims that the passengers deserved it by flying in the first place? Do NOT put it past them.
What I wonder is what caused that increase in food supply that caused the increase in population of Canada geese? If CC is so bad it should have caused the bird’s population to decline leading to eventual extinction. Right?
You really don’t have to wonder why journalism’s having such a tough time these days when you read stories like this.
