The Independent blamed global warming for the fact that missing Malaysian flight MH370 has not been found yet.
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 country’s prime minister’s 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.
For the record… Antarctica sea ice reached a 30 year record last year in extent and volume. But, since when did facts matter to these loons?
