What Is Global Warming NOT Repsonsible For?

What do all of these problems and illnesses have in common: asthma, childhood insomnia, dermatitis, suicide, floods, West Nile fever, landslides, food poising, cancer deaths, Lyme disease, wild fires, melanoma and the I-35W Minneapolis bridge collapse?

They are all supposedly caused by global warming. Check out the list of 600 things caused by global warming here from Numberwatch website, and check out the article "Global Warming as Religion and Not Science," about how global warming has become the core belief in a new eco-theology.

No surprise here, but if you take the time to click on a few links, you find that they're pretty much all based purely on unscientific speculation.

For example, "crime increase" is supposedly due to the fact that "valuable natural commodities like water and copper wiring could become more attractive to thieves," according to the unnamed attendees of a meeting of "global crime experts" hosted by the "Australian Crime Commission."

But aren't these the same thieves that find othere people's things to be of value no matter what? Like bicycles, cars and car parts for example?

Furthermore, only the first two lines in the article even mention this...the other 12 are dedicated to actual threats to safety, such as using internet telephony to remain anonymous in the comission of a crime, amd reducing the supply of meth and the existance of dangerous meth labs.

The telling moment for me was when one of the eco-whacko types after expounding on his global warming plans stated, "These are things we should be doing anyway."

The "things we should be doing anyway" were a laundry list of socialist totalitarian wet dreams.

Global Warming: I smell a boondoggle; hold on to your wallets.

The way these effects are written, it is evident that they are used to mock the science. Sure, there are people who exaggerate the effects of global warming (may be to mock this phenomena). You must visit the Asian countries, which are actually feeling the brunt of water level increase directly. Many villages in coastal areas on India, Pakistan and Bangladesh are permanently lost.

It is very easy to turn a blind eye towards the environmental changes happening around the world sitting in climate controlled rooms in US.
