MoveOn.Org: Bush to Blame for Hurricanes

Figures. As Bill Clinton was responsible for the rising of the sun and the fruiting of the vines, it must also be the case that the gods are angry that George Bush won't endorse the Kyoto Accords. Poseidon, God of the Oceans, is in a particular snit over this matter.

Thanks to Jim for the link:

SPARTANBURG, SC (Talon News) -- Attempting to take political advantage of the devastating hurricanes that have hit Florida and the southeastern section of the United States in the past few weeks, liberal political action group MoveOn.org is saying that President George W. Bush is to blame for "making extreme weather stronger."

In an e-mail to supporters, MoveOn.org rhetorically asks "why such extreme weather" has taken place with Hurricanes Charley, Frances, and Ivan causing billions of dollars in property damage and loss of life.

"Scientists agree that global warming makes sea levels rise and makes storms stronger, because temperature shifts disrupt the normal balance," MoveOn.org explained. "Warmer water makes more violent hurricanes."

The group added that insurance companies such as Swiss Re and Munich Re say "global warming is causing more losses."

...

"By writing to our local papers, we can reach out to neighbors who are concerned about the extreme weather but don't yet know the connection to President Bush protecting the polluters," MoveOn.org argued.

The e-mail concluded, "And best of luck coping with the weather."

In related news, Ares, God of War, just announced that he "really like[s] the cut of Don Rumsfield's jib."
