Need a Scapegoat? Try Global Warming

Since global warming is the new national religion, it probably won't shock you to learn that almost anything can be (and is) blamed on it. In fact, if you adopt the most recent vernacular and just say "climate change," you can pretty much never be held responsible for anything.

The following list contains links to news articles in which something is blamed solely or in part on climate change, so join me in taking some time to consider the age of hysteria in which we live.

From the top: acne, Afghan poppies destroyed, Africa in conflict, amphibians breeding early, cannibalism, increased anxiety, increased cougar attacks, better tasting beer, beer shortage, blackbirds not singing, Buddhist temple deteriorating, crocodile sex changes, conflict with Russia, increased street crime, genocide in Darfur (no joke), 50 million homeless people, psychiatric illness, traffic jams, terrorism, stingray invasion, suicide, world war...

And it's all because the planet is one degree warmer than it was 100 years ago.
