March 24, 2014 12:33 PM Mother Jones: Climate Change to Blame for Missing Malaysia Flight By Andrew Johnson
Malaysian authorities have finally determined that Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean, but the liberal magazine Mother Jones blames the extended nature of the search on the effects of man-made climate change.
On Friday, prior to the countrys prime ministers announcement that the plane had been located, the magazine claimed that expectations for where the plane might be were vastly different from where investigators could have anticipated 30 years ago because climate change and a once-thinning ozone layer have drastically altered ocean currents.
Scientists interviewed by Mother Jones worried that changes to the Antarctic Circumpolar Current and the Indian Ocean Gyre, the area where the plane is expected to be, have thrown off the search, which relied on long-term current and weather forecasts. The shifts can be blamed on anthropogenic changes, they argue:
The potential plane debris spotted via satellite is in this sort of boundary between the circumpolar current and the gyre; both of those currents are shifting south, says Steven Rintoul, an expert on the southern oceans with Australias foremost scientific research agency, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) , in Hobart. And it looks like thats largely due to human activities, but not just greenhouse gases. Both the ozone hole and greenhouse gases are working together to change the winds over the Southern Ocean.
The lack of attention paid to climate change has led to a shortage of data and misjudgments, Mother Jones determined. When things happen in the Indian [Ocean], we find out how little infrastructure we actually have in place, one scientist said.
This is one of those grand challenges, one of those big things that is really hard. We have to grapple with Mother Nature and try to say, Look lady, give us your secrets! We wont get rough with you, please dont get rough with us! she said.
Stupid is as stupid does.
Thank God we have something to blame besides George Bush.
How Captain Planet of them.
So is everything now blamed on global warming? Even a missing airplane?

Officials Say Missing Malaysia Airlines Plane “Ended in the Southern Indian Ocean”
Since everything bad is caused by Global Warming, they had to get to this premise. It’s a given.
This is how the kooks think on the left. The Republicans are guilty of climate change. The missing Malaysian plane was caused by climate change. Therefore the Republicans are responsible for the missing plane.
I’m certain that climate change was involved; but, it wasn’t a direct causal link. Climate change threw off critical atmospheric conditions, over a hidden island in the south pacific. That, in turn, threw off the paramaters of a secret experiment in time travel. The missing plane flew over the island at just the wrong time. There are likely survivors on that island; but, we’ll never find the island.
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
Mother Jones. Of course.
WORLD NEWS Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 Ended in Indian Ocean, Prime Minister Says
So, Algore and the looney liberals are directly responsible for this tragedy. There, I fixed it.
It’s not low-information voters, it’s no-information voters.
Most of us have learned to look at the link source name to avoid making some furious comments about a satirical and obviously off the wall attempt to skewer the nonsense the Left and their media and academic drones commit every day. It's embarrassing to become worked up over what amounts to a joke.
In this case, it should be satire. The Luddites who go around ginning up fears about the planet (the f***ing Planet!) being irreparably harmed by anything humans can do short of us setting off a string of cobalt bombs around the globe has become an exercise in shark jumping. It's actually kind of fun watching these people lose what little sanity they started out with as it dawns on them that they've lost the argument.
