Scientist blames failure of monsoon on US warplanes

A scientist claims the war in Afghanistan is partly to blame for the failure of the monsoon in parts of India.

The chief scientific officer at the Centre for Atmospheric Sciences in New Delhi says large volumes of greenhouse gases have been released by US warplanes.

Murari Lal believes the war has contributed significantly to the global warming factors he says are behind the low rainfall.

He told the Press Trust of India: "The injection of large amount of greenhouse gases and aerosols over Afghanistan, Pakistan and Arabian Sea by US fighter planes during the Afghanistan war in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere contributed to significantly deficient rainfall over north-west and central India."

Hey Mr Dumbass "scientist" - let me buy you a clue. The U.S. Military air traffic at the height of that war did not equal 1/10th of the routine military and civilian traffic over INDIA every day.

Regards

People used to believe that explosions caused it to rain, much like what one saw depicted in "The Rainmaker". I recommend we set off a nuke over Medina and Mecca so that the rest of the Middle East can get the effects and get some rain.

I think they just wanna squeeze some money out of Uncle Sam by making him feel guilty.

Here's an idea for solving the problem of global warming: NUCLEAR WINTER.

A few well-placed ICBM's in Europe and. . .

I normally see a velvet ant once every two or three years.

This year I've seen half a dozen of them in the last month alone.

Since velvet ants are pests which will sting the bejezus out of you if they get half a chance, any such increase in their numbers is a negative outcome which must be due to some Republican misbehavior.

But, for the life of me, I can't figure out the specific misbehavior that's likely to be at fault.

The Kyoto treaty is an America-hating plot to deindustrialize the United States.

I saw a lot of "cow killers" last year. So far, I haven't seen any this year. Maybe they moved; you can have 'em.

Yo, Mr Scientist, what do you think that white stuff you see behind a jet aircraft when it's flying?

Here's a hint: It's water vapor. Hmmm...

Duh. Try to incorporate the word "is" into that first run-on sentence.

It was just too hot today here in the Valley.

"...I saw a lot of "cow killers" last year. So far, I haven't seen any this year. Maybe they moved; you can have 'em..."

Maybe they're nomadic, like the Mongol Horde.

My oldest boy, who generally prefers to learn his lessons the hard way, once ignored my warnings about these little monsters and picked one up.

He only did that once.

Y'all keep calling this guy a scientist. He is the "chief scientific officer". Or you could read that "chief scientific information officer" if you get my meaning.......;>)

My theory is that the problem can be directly traced to the food.

African droughts "triggered by Western pollution"

U.S. to blame for Africa's drought?

Scientists blame deadly Africa famine on pollution from North America, Europe, Asia
