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.
