For The Last Time, No, The Syrian Crisis Was Not Caused By Climate Change

Is there nothing green ideologues won’t do to try to breathe pseudo-scientific life into their bankrupt climate change thesis?

    This bilge is even on our Canadian Weather Channel. Read the 40+ comments below the article – there is hope. Also note the dead kid’s name has been anglicized to “Alan” from “Aylan”. Talk about raw propaganda – Sheeesh!

      At this point in history, the Weather Network’s website is pretty much a global warming website that also happens to forecast the weather.

      Here’s a great comment in response to some viral story about a polar bear who went for a dive.

    The Syrian crisis was caused by a nearly 1,400 year history of Sunnis slaughtering Shias.

    Syria’s majority Sunnis were not happy being ruled by not only a Shia, but, a Shia from the much-loathed Alewite sub-sect.

    But, hey, why blame people when we came blame a boogeyman instead.

      I have no problem with Muzz killing Muzz, and I am sure I am not alone on here. People are waking up, one day at a time.

    That’s not propaganda… it’s pure fantasy.

    Be that as it may. The issue was is and will be that Syria is a water rich country in the Mideast. It gets 16x the fresh water that’s available to the Jordan River Basin Aquifer which serves Israel and Jordan, a population of over 11 million people. But because they’re so backwards Syria routinely tosses more than a quarter of their fresh water, about 4 billion barrels a year, into the ocean. That waste alone is 4x the total consumption of Israel. Add to that the 1 billion barrels of water per year Lebanon also tosses into the sea and you start to get a picture of what’s going on.
