Well, at at least it isn’t golf, right?

Inevitable: Japan’s earthquake and tsunami blamed on global “warming”

I cynically asked a friend, over the weekend: How long until the global “warming” nuts blame the massive earthquake and tsunami in Japan on their junk science fad?  Granted, it was mostly a rhetorical question, but you always have some schmuck who doesn’t know that it’s a rhetorical question.

In this case, said schmuck is the global “warming” crowd.  Tim Blair outlines their lunacy, starting with the opening line:

“An earthquake with an 8.9 magnitude struck Japan,” writes a concerned citizen. “And some say climate change isn’t real?!”

Um, yes, “concerned citizen”, “some” say that “climate change” isn’t real. I don’t know if even Gore is stupid enough to blame this on his junk science fad, but I don’t want to give the Father of the Internet too much credit if it’s not due. Continuing:

She wasn’t alone. Lots of warmist idiots immediately connected the Japanese disaster – which might have killed more than 1000 – to climate change:

So far, today’s tsunami has mainly affected Japan – there are reports of up to 300 dead in the coastal city of Sendai – but future tsunamis could strike the U.S. and virtually any other coastal area of the world with equal or greater force, say scientists. In a little-heeded warning issued at a 2009 conference on the subject, experts outlined a range of mechanisms by which climate change could already be causing more earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic activity.

“When the ice is lost, the earth’s crust bounces back up again and that triggers earthquakes, which trigger submarine landslides, which cause tsunamis,” Bill McGuire, professor at University College London, told Reuters.

An appropriate response is here.

These people are clinically deranged, period.

Expert on Japan: Obama’s bow was embarrassingly inappropriate and conveyed weakness

Not content to show our enemies how weak America is under his leadership, B.O. is now displaying the same thing for our allies.

The White House spin:

A senior administration official said President Barack Obama was simply observing protocol when he bowed to Japanese Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko upon arriving at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo on Saturday.

“I think that those who try to politicize those things are just way, way, way off base,” the official said. “He observes protocol. But I don’t think anybody who was in Japan – who saw his speech and the reaction to it, certainly those who witnesses his bilateral meetings there – would say anything other than that he enhanced both the position and the status of the U.S., relative to Japan. It was a good, positive visit at an important time, because there’s a lot going on in Japan.”

As with nearly everything else that comes from the White House, that too was a steaming pile of bovine feces.  If I didn’t know any better, I’d swear this guy was a suck-up lightweight who doesn’t know what the Sam Hill he’s doing!
