One Reason It May Be Harder to Find Flight 370: We Messed Up the Currents (barf bag at the ready)
Mother Jones ^ | 3-21-2014 | James West

Posted on 03/23/2014 6:06:18 PM PDT by rdl6989

Scientists say man-made climate change has fundamentally altered the currents of the vast, deep oceans where investigators are currently scouring for the missing Malaysian Airlines flight, setting a complex stage for the ongoing search for MH370. If the Boeing 777 did plunge into the ocean somewhere in the vicinity of where the Indian Ocean meets the Southern Ocean, the location where its debris finally ends up, if found at all, may be vastly different from where investigators could have anticipated 30 years ago.

Moonbats just had to drag global warming nonsense into this. You knew it was coming. I do apologize, you'll need to sanitize your computer after going to Mother Jones.

Climate change is a given, continual. Man-made is an as yet unproven hypothesis. But there is lots of money to be made and politics to be done.

so we can predict weather patterns over thousands of years, but can’t predict ocean currents in real time? This takes a special kind of wacky to “reason” this....

I’m sure it was the software designed to give the desired outcome of AGW that didn’t get the currents right.

Scientists say

Which scientists? What are their names? Where do they practice science? This sounds like a bunch of hot air.

Remember, assertion is not truth.

No, it’s not global warming. It’s the hole in the ozone layer. I’ll bet that plane had the wrong kind of coolant in its refrigerator!

I am guessing the theories about the jet being possibly located in the Southern Indian Ocean is trying to build credibility that we are really looking there. McInerny has been silenced on TV the last couple of days and my GUESS is we have teams of SEALS, Army Rangers, Force Recon Marines and maybe Delta teams on land watching areas of interest where the plane may have landed. Regardless if it was a dry or wet landing we have to explore all possibilities. Why we dont have more of our fleet moved to the area to search is interesting. Seems like we have not taken the bait and we are waiting for something to happen.

The other reason could be because the plane is sitting on dry land in Pakistan. :-)

It has nothing to do with global warming.... likely the plane is in a hangar somewhere in Talaban control.

Assuming the plane flew directly across India, possibly in the wake (literally) of Singapore Air flt 68, it would have plenty of fuel to reach Pakistan.

I would like to see how the heck they know exactly how currents were running 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000, 1000000 years ago throughout all the oceans and then how they know that today’s ocean current patterns diverge from some non-existent “norm” because of human activity. These people are raving lunatics.

Exactly, the idea that currents, and climate for that matter, are constantly changing, is always conveniently left out of AGW claims.

My theory: That plane is sitting under camo in Yemen & the passengers are hostages.

Obama & co. probably know this but don't want the hijackers to know they know until they can do a rescue. This is why they are (publicly) searching areas far from Yemen & why the misled MSM is so transfixed on the southern Indian ocean.

I do not believe the 2 pilots purposely crashed the plane in the sea without a word of what they were protesting. Terrorists like publicity for themselves & their cause. Why they have remained silent I do not know.

The search for the crashed Flight 370 is a wasted effort. We know the plane landed safely in a Muslim country like Iran or Pakistan. I lean more towards Iran because it is 90% Shi’ite Muslim, which is the Muslim sect that Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah identified with as well as political opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim.

Iran? Possible I suppose but nations already have planes. I would think either Al Qaeda took it or it is in the ocean. I lean towards the latter but it certainly could have landed somewhere.

Spot on! The search in he Indian Ocean is a diversion to the real search: Satellite imagery of an errant aircraft landing that was out of the scheduled airline flight plans. This is why we have reconnaissance satellites with enough image detail to read a license plate.

The latest joke in the diversion I heard on Fox today is that the Malaysian government is claiming Flight 370 did not change course, but was flying straight to China. What a joke. They can lie better than that!
