"Climate Change" is the Favorite Excuse of Politicians After a Preventable Disaster

Whether it's forest fires in California, heat deaths in Oregon and France, or floods in Germany, global warming under its current brand 'climate change' is how politicians excuse their own failures in the face of preventable and manageable disasters.

Here's the leader of the free world looking at devastated homes and human misery and blaming a lack of carbon taxes.

Hundreds of people in the village of Heimersheim were still without power Sunday as police combed the wreckage left by receded water to look for bodies and potentially flammable material.

There were similar scenes across western Germany and other parts of Europe where the cleanup from last week's disastrous flooding continued. At least 180 people have died, officials confirmed Sunday; thousands more are missing.

In the nearby village of Schuld, Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel surveyed the damage Sunday, meeting with survivors, many of whom had lost their homes, before traveling to the town of Adenau, where she held a news conference.

"The German language hardly knows any words for the devastation that has been caused here," she said.

Try catastrophe. Same as in English.

She said the force of the storms suggested that they had "something to do with climate change," adding, "We have to hurry, we have to get faster in the fight against climate change."

Something. That's science. If you disagree with that something science, you want people to die.

Was there too much carbon being emitted in 1287 during the St. Lucia's flood?

St. Lucia's flood (Sint-Luciavloed) was a storm tide that affected the Netherlands and Northern Germany on December 14, 1287 (the day after St. Lucia Day) when a dike broke during a storm, killing approximately 50,000 to 80,000 people in the fifth largest flood in recorded history. 

Must have had something to do with climate change.
