And the list keeps growing, when last we left the official Moonbat list of dumb things global warming causes it contained Incredible shrinking sheep, Invasion of jellyfish in the Mediterranean, Surge in fatal shark attack, Boy Scout tornado deaths, Severe acne, Global conflict, Beer tasting different, Suicide of farmers in Australia, Bigger tuna fish,Longer days, Shorter days, Collapse of gingerbread houses in Sweden, Cow infertility, UFO sightings in the UK, Rise in insurance premiums, and Heroin addiction and a rise in bear attacks in Japan and Frigid Cold Winters in Great Britain, just to name a few. The only thing they haven’t blamed on global warming so far are Keith Olbermann and the Democratic party’s rejection of Obama’s tax compromise and of course Oprah’s exit from broadcast TV. Now its time to add another one to the list!
The latest? The UN says Climate change could give you cancer. Yep now global warming gets put into the same category as Cigarettes, DDT and of course being a lab rat and consuming two tons of the sweetener cyclamate in one sitting.
This is how they say their latest scam works:
My Stories Melting glaciers and ice sheets are releasing cancer-causing pollutants into the air and oceans, scientists say. The long-lasting chemicals get into the food chain and build up in people’s bodies – triggering tumours, heart disease and infertility.
The study – due to be published next month – says rising temperatures and more extreme weather are increasing human exposure to pollutants around the world, including in Britain.
‘It is a problem in all parts of the world – pollutants do not respect borders. They travel thousands of miles and they continue to build’ Scientists are concerned about Persistent Organic Pollutants, or POPs, because they last decades in the environment and accumulate in body tissue.
POPs? Does than mean we cant have soda pop?
They include pesticides such as DDT and chemicals called PCBs used in electrical goods.
Donald Cooper, of the United Nations Environment Programme which published the report at the UN climate talks in Cancun, Mexico, said melting glaciers and ice sheets were releasing POPs trapped years ago into the air and seas.
….’In the past pollutants have travelled long distances and become trapped in ice in glaciers and ice sheets. But as the ice melts, or when temperatures go up, they are released back into the seas and atmosphere.
….Higher temperatures can also make seals, whales and polar bars more vulnerable to pollutants, the report says.
I knew it!! I knew they would find a way to merge it with “Save the Whales.”
Here is the problem glaciers are growing, that’s right getting bigger. At this site is a list of referenced/ and hot-lined articles talking about the growth of glaciers. There are also pages that show the Antarctic Ice is growing and the latest reports from the ice stations in Greenland show that everything was pretty cool (pun intended).
Sorry moonbats it looks like a case of , “Glaciers Si’, Cancer No”
