Read here, here and here. The incredible, stuck-on-stupid, global warming causes everything and anything to happen is revealed again by the left/liberal chattering classes. The latest example of progressive idiocy is the claim that recent riots in Tunisia and Egypt are the result of global warming.
"Paul Krugman joins the crowd who think that they can see the signal of greenhouse emissions in noisy, short-term data on food prices, and then construct a chain of causality to the ongoing unrest in the Middle East. Such tenuous claims of attribution have about as much scientific standing as Pat Robertson saying that Hurricane Katrina was the result of the vengeful wrath of God.....Like Pat Roberson's attribution of Katrina to the wrath of God in punishment for our sins, Krugman's attribution of unrest in the Middle East to the wrath of Climate in punishment for our sins is in one sense just emotive commentary from an uninformed pundit. On the other hand, to the extent that Krugman's views shape policy, they are simply misguided and misleading."
Previous "how to spell stupidity" postings: Part I and Part II. Additional Krugman postings here and here. Conservatives, moderates and independents often wonder why their liberal friends sound sooo stooopid: the answer is K-R-U-G-M-A-N, and other chattering idiot-elites who live and breathe stupidity for their readers, viewers and listeners from the major MSM outlets.
