New Unified Field Theory

Albert Einstein's dream is now a reality.  We have a new unified field theory:  Global Warming causes everything bad.   Via Tom Nelson and American Thinker, comes this list by Dr. John Brignell of links to articles in the media attributing various bad things to Global Warming.  Currently, his list has over 600 items!  Some excerpts:

Agricultural land increase, Africa devastated,  African aid threatened, Africa hit hardest, air pressure changes, Alaska reshaped, allergies increase, Alps melting, Amazon a desert, American dream endamphibians breeding earlier (or not)ancient forests dramatically changed, animals head for the hills, Antarctic grass flourishes, anxiety, algal blooms, archaeological sites threatened, Arctic bogs melt, Arctic in bloom, Arctic lakes disappear, asthma, Atlantic less salty, Atlantic more salty...

itchier poison ivy, jellyfish explosion, Kew Gardens taxed, kitten boom, krill decline, lake and stream productivity decline, lake shrinking and growing, landslides, landslides of ice at 140 mph, lawsuits increase, lawsuit successful, lawyers' income increased (surprise surprise!), lightning related insurance claims, little response in the atmosphere, lush growth in rain forests, Lyme diseaseMalaria, malnutrition,  mammoth dung melt, Maple syrup shortage...

wheat yields crushed in Australia, white Christmas dream ends, wildfires, wind shift, wind reduced, wine - harm to Australian industry, wine industry damage (California), wine industry disaster (US), wine - more English, wine -German boon, wine - no more French winters in Britain colder, wolves eat more moose, wolves eat less, workers laid off, World bankruptcy, World in crisis, World in flames, Yellow fever.

All I can say is:

To be fair, a couple of those look like good effects: if Germany becomes a better wine producer, that could be a good thing...

But yeah, I'm with you.

Echochondriac - just like a hypochondriac only about the environment.

Mr. Coyote, I recently ran across this:


Leland, a frequent contributor to The Oil Drum and staunch believer in man made global warming made the following comment.

"It's written by someone working in the climate science field. (He's apparently at tu, but I'll try not to hold it against him. ;-) It's a short and interesting piece about why AGW is not really a theory, and what evidence it would take to make him change his mind about it.

Unfortunately, I fear the average denialist just wouldn't understand it."

I've always admired your critical thinking ability coupled with your skills in analysis and logic and would appreciate for you at your leisure to analyze the climate scientist's statement. I believe it would make a good cross post over at the Climate Skeptic.

Side bar:

Leland, in my opinion, is like many true believers. He tends to see global warming as an either black or white issue; there are no shades of gray. Not only is global warming it is caused by man. Period and amen.
