It's All a Hoax!

By Cassandra D

News from The Independent:

"Rising seas, caused by global warming, have for the first time washed an inhabited island off the face of the Earth. The obliteration of Lohachara island, in India's part of the Sundarbans where the Ganges and the Brahmaputra rivers empty into the Bay of Bengal, marks the moment when one of the most apocalyptic predictions of environmentalists and climate scientists has started coming true.

...

"Refugees from the vanished Lohachara island and the disappearing Ghoramara island have fled to Sagar, but this island has already lost 7,500 acres of land to the sea. In all, a dozen islands, home to 70,000 people, are in danger of being submerged by the rising seas. "

Typical. The Liberal Blogosphere -- or the Liblogeralsophere, as I like to call it -- is jumping to ridiculous conclusions.

Global warming? Scientific evidence? Islands washed away by the ocean? Poppycock.

Why aren't you left-wing moonbats asking the real question: Why does God hate India? I'm sure there's a good reason.

Now, if you'll pardon me, I need to pray to my gas-powered Bible on a rug made of baby seals.

Oh come on, it's just a bunch of left-wing scientists who have created a bizarre weather doomsday machine, and now they're using it! Don't you people read Michael Crichton?

Hey, did you hear some douchebag for the local paper mentioned the vanishing island in a column recently?

What a douchebag.

Cassandra, please do keep reminding us that global warming is a serious problem and growing more serious each year. It's so easy for others to blame this on "liberals," because if we acknowledge there is a real problem, we have to start doing something about it. And I do have to admit, it's pleasant having forty degree afternoons in Wisconsin. However, unless we have a serious, long-lasting hard freeze, our crops and gorgeous forests are going to suffer mightily; the ecosystems depend on a hard freeze and plenty of snow cover. People reminisce about the hard winters we "used to" have and the snow we "used to" get.

Ecological problems are serious on so many fronts. I don't know how many people realize that the Great Lakes are in trouble from both pollution and invasive animal species attaching themselves to ships. We've learned that nutritionally, because of cholesterol and fat, fish is healthier than red meat. On the other hand, increasing pollution of water sources leads to toxic fish.

When are we going to realize that we can't treat the planet just any old way?

I wish that this was all just a "liberal plot."
