February 27, 2014 10:04 AM Climate Change Will Cause Rape and Murder and Assault and Robbery and Larceny and Make People Steal Your Car By Charles C. W. Cooke
This, from Mother Jones, is what people who are losing the argument look like:
Study: Global Warming Will Cause 180,000 More Rapes by 2099
Global warming isnt just going to melt the Arctic and flood our citiesits also going to make Americans more likely to kill each other.
Thats the conclusion of a controversial new study that uses historic crime and temperature data to show that hotter weather leads to more murders, more rapes, more robberies, more assaults, and more property crimes.
Looking at the past, we see a strong relationship between temperature and crime, says study author Matthew Ranson, an economist with policy consulting firm Abt Associates. We think that is likely to continue in the future.
Just how much more crime can we expect? Using the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Changes warming projections, Ranson calculated that from 2010 to 2099, climate change will cause an additional 22,000 murders, 180,000 cases of rape, 1.2 million aggravated assaults, 2.3 million simple assaults, 260,000 robberies, 1.3 million burglaries, 2.2 million cases of larceny, and 580,000 cases of vehicle theft in the US.
Americans, who are apparently tired of everything being blamed on climate change, are beginning to tune out. A quick look at Gallup and youll see that the environment doesnt register as an issue that voters especially care about, and, too, that the number of people who say they are convinced by the endless claims of Science! has diminished dramatically in the last few years. And so, instead of toning down the eschatological predictions, were starting to see even more ridiculousness. Have we really reached, Hey, pay us some attention or your car will be stolen!?
This is somewhat reminiscent of last years gun control debate, during which the advocates of stricter regulations became increasingly manic as they lost the publics interest and trust. Its classic and predictable stuff: When your campaign is based upon scaring people into acquiescence, the temptation when losing is always to throw out more monsters and more special effects. Or, as the NOAAs Martin Hoerling put it, to recruit to the cause some spell conjured upon us by great external forces, like the monster flicks of Universal Studios fame!
As I wrote earlier in the year, if the Left really wants to regain some ground on this topic, itll try some humility.
I say 30 days before some accused rapist turns to the Climate Change Defense.
LORD help us. These people are insane.
It’s just a shot away...
So don’t make people steal your car....”get Direct TV”.
Sorry, couldn’t resist the parody tied in with the Direct TV commercials.
Global warming advocates: No character with it, none without it.
It makes my Cat shed...and climate change is the reason my sheets are not as white.
None dare call insanity ... insanity ... insane.
The Philly Inquirer ran an article a while back about how increased CO2 in the environment was causing poison ivy, poison oak and poison sumac to bloom.
and the gorilla.
and the result of a larger welfare state?
Yeah, yeah, yeah. We get that. But will it make people talk in movie theatres??? That is when the trouble will truly start.
Of course, there's a third alternativereining in the greenhouse gas emissions that are causing global warming in the first place.
Now I understand. Global warming is the Devil, the boogeyman hiding underneath the beds of leftist children.
Climate change will cause an increase in “diaper rash.”
the “Rot” is an awful, awful thing
Now we know Climate Change is contributing to Rape and Murder and Assault and Robbery and Larceny and Make People Steal Your Car.
Logically, it follows that smoking is contributing to Rape and Murder and Assault and Robbery and Larceny and Make People Steal Your Car.
Who would have thought ?
Kind of helps you understand why Liberals have been fighting against logic being a required course on college campuses.
So if crime rates have been going down (they have) are they admitting that there is no “man made global warming”?

Now we know why St. Trayvon of the Skittles (SBUH) tried to murder George Zimmerman!! Oops; it was chilly and raining that night. Gotta try for another explanation. Maybe it was because St. Trayvon was a thug and murderer wannabe trying to make his first set of bones.
