FOXNews.com recently listed a number of problems the media has reported are occurring or will occur as the result of man-made global warming. It seems that global warming is being made the scapegoat of many concerns that sound ridiculous.
- Media mogul Ted Turner said that global warming would turn us into cannibals.
- Scotland’s Daily Mirror has reported that the Lock Nest Monster (Nessie) may be dead because of global warming.
- The Associated Press has reported that global warming will cause an increase in the price of beer.
- According to USAToday.com, giant pythons – big enough to eat alligators and people in a single mouthful – will be living in one-third of continental U.S. as a result of global warming.
- The Globe and Mail reported that there will be an increase in people with kidney stones over the next 30 years because of global warming.
- The Guardian reported that whales are significantly skinnier because of global warming.
- The Guardian reported that an increase in fatal shark attacks was the result of global warming.
- CNSNews.com reported that the 1993 crash of a U.S. military helicopter in Mogadishu (“Black Hawk Down”) should be blamed on global warming.
- National Geographic reported that baby penguins froze to death in July because of global warming.
- The Daily Mail reported that killer stingrays will invade the beaches of England because of global warming.
Yet, it is interesting to note that all four major global temperature tracking outlets (Hadley, NASA’s GISS, UAH, RSS) have released data showing that global temperatures have dropped precipitously. The total amount of cooling ranges from 0.65C up to 0.75C — a value large enough to wipe out most of the warming recorded over the past 100 years. DailyTech reports that the link to the cooling is reduced solar activity which is the real driver behind climate change. These warming and cooling cycles are caused by the sun’s increase and decrease of solar activity. It is an unstoppable force which is an integral part of the earth’s natural history.
