Skip to comments.Some respond to Japan earthquake by pointing to global warming

Hours after a massive earthquake rattled Japan, environmental advocates connected the natural disaster to global warming. The president of the European Economic and Social Committee, Staffan Nilsson, issued a statement calling for solidarity in tackling the global warming problem.
Some islands affected by climate change have been hit, said Nilsson. Has not the time come to demonstrate on solidarity not least solidarity in combating and adapting to climate change and global warming?
Mother Nature has again given us a sign that that is what we need to do, he added.
Global Warming enthusiasts have also taken to Twitter to raise awareness of the need to respond to the earthquake by finally acting on climate change. And the Competitive Enterprise Institutes Lee Doren compiled some of the best ones.
AliceTMBFan said 2 hours of geography earlier talking about Japan has left me thinking maybe global warming is way more serious then we thought
Arbiterofwords tweeted Im worried that Japan earthquake, on top of other recent natural disasters, is a sign weve passed point of no return for climate change.
MrVikas said Events like the #Japan #earthquake and #tsunami MUST keep #climate change at forefront of policy thought: http://bit.ly/cZe8To #environment
Tayyclayy noted her frustration by tweeting An earthquake with an 8.9 magnitude struck Japan.. And some say climate change isnt real?!
DanFranklin postulated Never really believed all this global warming talk, but after the earthquake in NZ and today in Japan. Maybe weve ruined the world.
And TeamIanHarding tweeted While Japan witnessed an earthquake we were talking about the problems that global warming leads to in school. Think. Pray. And change.
Do they have a point?
Global warming alarmists will exploit any natural disaster to promote their anti-fossil fuel agenda, Tom Borelli of the Free Enterprise Project told The Daily Caller, adding that the climate change reaction is a result of the global warming spin machine.
First its global warming, then its climate change, now its probably tectonic instability no doubt all caused by man, he said.
When contacted by TheDC, Dan Weiss, Director of Climate Strategy at the Center for American Progress also expressed skepticism at the link between global warming and the earthquake in Japan.
I am not a scientist, said Weiss, but I have never heard of a link between global warming and earthquakes.
Liberals really love using the misery of others to their own ends do they not!
I knew it would take less than 24 hours— but I must say I am shocked it took them this long...
Try global COOLING. Cold causes contraction, loosening fissures. Duh. Don’t forget the lunar cycle and solar coronal ejections.
This can actually be a good thing.
Sounds like great fodder for a sarcastic campaign commercial.
Wow. What else can they blame it on?
OMG....”maybe we’ve ruined the world?”
The drama queens are out in full force today!
So let me get this straight.
There were no such things as earthquakes until global warming was invented?
I’m so confused!
The Japan tragedy is horrific. And Indonesia just had an earthquake.
It could very well because of the Supermoon. The moon is now closer to the Earth than at any time in the last 18 years.
Oh man - my bad - Global Warming caused the Supermoon.
Sorry, disregard the science of gravitational pull.
Beware the Ides of March and March 19th when the full impact of the Supermoon takes effect.
Some significant percentage of society is always clinically insane.
Globull Warming burnt my toast this morning, and I want you all to pay for it...
Whatever it takes to get these enviro-nuts to shut up and go away. Yeah hippie, go with that because there's nothing that can be done anyway.
Gotta be Bush’s fault (sarcism)
Modern day flagellants or should I say flatulents.
I’d say lets beat this idiot senseless but what’s the use he already is...our only solace is that when the s hits the fan this moron and more like him wont have food or guns....concertina wire
There was supposed to be a super solar flare that was supposed to hit S. Afrika in the past few days. Everyone was warned to wear heavy sunscreen block.
It is a fact that with a solar flare comes a magnetic flux which can cause earth quakes.
Wonder if the two are related?
Or it could just be Global Warming. That is always what make the Left feel more comfortable and willing to accept.
