Once again, its time to add to the Official “Stupid Things Used To Fear Monger About Global Warming” List. The new entry is armed robbery, prostitution, and drug abuse at least in Ghana. Since July 2009 global warming moonbats have blamed each of the following on global warming, climate change or whatever they decided to call it these days:
Incredible shrinking sheep, Invasion of jellyfish in the Mediterranean, Surge in fatal shark attack, Boy Scout tornado deaths, 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, Heroin addiction, Frigid Cold Winters in Great Britain, Cancer, Death from heart disease, diabetes, stroke, respiratory disease and even accidents, homicide, suicide, water -borne disease outbreaks, heavier, wetter snowstorms treacherous for travel and ambulation, Lyme disease, swarms of allergy-inducing, stinging insects, along with mosquitoes and devastating pine bark beetle infestations and the spread of forest and crop pests, 40,000 dead crabs , unrest in the Middle East. screwed-up love making, the Japanese earthquake-tsunami, horrible rash of tornadoes in southeast United States,The Arab Spring, extended severe allergy seasons, Lyme disease, malaria or dengue fever, trauma, depression, high blood pressure and heart disease,and increased threat of wars, violence and military action against the UK. migration of possibly rabid Vampire bats from Mexico.
According to an article on Modern Ghana.com called Climate Change and Social Impacts, global warming is causing all kinds of bad things. According to the article, global warming is ruining the farms in Ghana especially in the Ashaladja community.
The effects of climate change are increasingly threatening the sustainability of the environment. Evidently, it has provoked very serious and grievous social impacts. For instance, climate change effects have led to deepening unemployment. Ashaladja is a community in Ghana where agriculture which is the key source of livelihood of the inhabitants has been adversely affected the over 5,000 indigenes.
According to the article, climate change has caused floods ruining the Cassava, Yam, Cocoyam, and Plantain crops. Because of the ruined crops many youths have had nothing to do, and as the old saying goes, the idol brain is the devil’s playground.
Thus the youth including young women have become jobless and are forced to engage in deviant behaviors such as armed robbery, prostitution, and drug abuse as means of survival.
Again, the influx of young people from the rural to the urban areas as an attempt to escape serious droughts has denied development in those rural areas. Indeed, if the able, talented, energetic and vibrant young people are hurriedly leaving for the city or urban centers, then how can development take place in those communities? This signal is posing a threat to the future of these communities thereby denying the possibility of eradicating poverty. The negative social impact of such development may not be quantified.
Holy Crap! Prostitution and drugs, and Crime in Ghana just because of global warming. Will that move up to the Northern Hemisphere and the 48 states. After all, we Americans are exhaling CO2 and driving gas guzzlers. All Gore was right! We’re all going to die, but who knew it would be from STDs, ODs and getting beaten by crooks . Unless of course this is just a little more global warming fear mongering.
