Ecoscammers Now Blaming Global Warming for Somalia Civil War Deaths

Ecoscammers are working overtime to invent Climate Change refugees and victims of Climate Change to shake down developed nations for money and funnel more cash into their Green slush funds.

So prepare for a raft of commercials featuring starving children and disaster victims who are now being branded as victims of your refusal to bike to work and your insistence on eating a burger for lunch.

That means Ecoscammers are ghoulishly hunting around for disasters that they can exploit. Enter Somalia.

A new study has found that human-induced climate change contributed to low rain levels in East Africa in 2011, making global warming one of the causes of Somalia’s famine and tens of thousands of deaths.

Climate scientists with Britain’s national weather service studied weather patterns in Somalia in 2010 and 2011 and found that yearly precipitation known as the short rains failed in late 2010 because of the natural effects of La Nina.

But Peter Scott, one of the study’s authors, said the lack of long rains in 2011 was a result of climate change.

Britain has said up to 100,000 people died from the famine. But global warming wasn’t the only cause. Al-Shabab Islamic extremists stopped aid groups from distributing food in its territory, contributing to the deaths.

The rains weren’t limited to Somalia, but had the same effect in Ethiopia and Kenya. Since neither of the two countries were in the midst of a civil war (probably because neither of them are majority Muslim countries), they didn’t experience 100,000 deaths.

Apparently Climate Change/Global Warming/Doom of Doom only kills 100,000 people when large numbers of people are killing other people. By that metric, the Hundred Years War’s deaths were also no doubt due to Climate Change.

The rain in Spain or in Kenyan or in Ethiopia doesn’t kill 100,000 people, unless Muslims are murdering each other across the country. Only then does Global Warming kill 100,000 people.

I’m not a scientist, but this seems like experimental proof that Islam may be deadlier than Global Warming. But we’re too busy fighting imaginary wars against the weather to fight back against the people killing us.

    Confusing La Nina with Climate change, when one has 0 to do with the other? Figures. Buncha hacks.

    "up to 100,000 people died from the famine"

    Nope: 100,000 people died because individuals couldn't take care of themselves or their children.
    The village failed….

      Sharia is pretty brutal that way.

      I wonder if this girl was stoned to death due to global warming?

        You USE THE SAME STUPID STORY ALL THE TIME! Give it a rest already will ya? Nobody is buying your kool-aid! Muslims are hard working decent people. People can see past the hate Ok?

          Coming from the paid hack troll, why do you think you deserve any credibility?
          Do you really expect to just say they're decent folks and we'll overlook all the headlines?

          Yeah. Right up til they feel the tug of Jihad.

    Lock Box o' Rocks at it again. I wonder if 'Global Warming' causes Nobel laureates to assault massage therapists . . .

      Nope, his kid getting to many tickets does that.

    Some of the rice in my lunch was undercooked and hurt my teeth when I chewed it.

    Undoubtedly caused by Global Warming.

    "100,000 people"? Shouldn't it be "ONE HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS"?

    idiots stop making jokes about hunger, we somalis are proud to be somali no matter what.

      You hear about the Somalian thrown in the alligator pit. He ate three before they could pull him back out again….

  • Clark Banner

    Once again Mr. Greenfield you lie and misrepresent the article once again. The article is saying that Climate Change either contributed or was responsible for low rainfall itself, not for the 100,000 deaths and the entirety of the famine itself. It lists climate change as a contributing factor.

    The article even talks about Islamist groups being responsible for the famine. Seriously, do you call this Journalism?

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

      So you agree with him?

  • Max

    Alright Mr. Geenfield, but I really wonder about your geographical knowledge. Is Somalia in East Africa? No sir its in Horn of Africa or if you like, Eastern Africa. So before you show off please check your Geography. By the way Somalis die because Al Shabab refuses to allow Aid Agencies. THeir country is Semi Arid but there are two rivers and as Ioan M. Lewis, the Doyen of Somali studies says, "between these two rivers .. pastoralic communities are found."

    • Daniel Greenfield

      That section is quoted from FOX News.

      You'll have to take up the geography with them.

    GLOBAL WARMING MAY NOT BE MAN MADE

    Dr. Larry Vardiman (scientist and physicist) of the Institue for Creation Research says:

    "One possible scenario may be found in a recent series of articles by Henrik Svensmark and Nigel Marsh, cosmic ray specialists from Denmark, who have shown an indirect connection between galactic cosmic ray (GCR) intensity and global temperature.7,8,9 They are studying the influence of the Sun on the flow of GCR to Earth. The Sun's changing sunspot activity influences the magnetosphere surrounding the Earth permitting more GCR to strike the Earth during high periods of activity.

    When the Sun is active, the intensity of GCR striking the Earth is increased, causing more ionization in the atmosphere, creating more carbon-14, and possibly creating more cloud condensation nuclei (CCN). This increase in CCN, in turn, appears to create more low-level clouds which cool the Earth. When the Sun is quiet the GCR intensity striking the Earth is reduced, allowing the Earth to warm. Svensmark and Marsh have shown a striking statistical correlation between sunspot activity and global cooling and warming over the past 1000 years.

    The recent rise in global temperature may partially be due to current low solar activity supplemented by a recent increase in carbon dioxide concentration measured at Mauna Loa. The connection which still needs further study is the production of CCN and clouds by GCR."

    There is a good deal of science showing that global warming is not mad made. Yes, we still should have pollution controls, as we already do, but not to the extreme because it will unnecessarily hurt business.

    Oh brother! These people will blame global warming for EVERYTHING! And for patriothere,most of them are,but far too many Muslims are silent when Americans are murdered by their coreligionists. We don't hear a peep from them.

    I have come to the conclusion that we all have a little blame global warming and its consequences and guilt even more politicians who do not slow down.
