Warming Alarmism 1930’s Style – Blame The Yo-Yo

The drought of 2006 - 2011 in Syria was caused by global warming and thus climate change caused the civil war

One thing always holds true with the Greens and warming alarmists, they absolutely love a human catastrophe or tragedy, because then they can apply their new branch of science witchcraft, Attribution to the event and conclusively prove that the hand of man has caused the event.

Take for example the ongoing human tragedy of the Syrian civil war. Civil wars have always been far more brutal and atrocity prone than conflicts between rival sovereign states, the Spanish Civil War of 17 July 1936 to 1 April 1939 is a classic case of how barbaric and brutal a civil war can become.

As the fighting continues to rage and chemical weapons are used, the warming alarmists have detailed proof that Anthropogenic Global Warming is behind the Syrian conflict and many conflicts that have yet to start:

“Syria has been convulsed by civil war since climate change came to Syria with a vengeance,” Polk writes. “Drought devastated the country from 2006 to 2011. Rainfall in most of the country fell below eight inches (20 cm) a year, the absolute minimum needed to sustain un-irrigated farming. Desperate for water, farmers began to tap aquifers with tens of thousands of new well. But, as they did, the water table quickly dropped to a level below which their pumps could lift it.

Syria has had severe droughts before in recent history, in the 1930’s Anthropogenic Yo Yo’s were the cause:

YO-YO BANNED

IN SYRIA

Blamed For Drought

By Moslems

BEIRUT (Syria), January 21.

Drought and severe cold is disastrously affecting the cattle in Syria, and the Moslem chiefs at Damascus have attributed the wrath of the heavens to the recent introduction of the yo-yo.

They say that while the people are praying for rain to come down from above the yo-yo goes down, and before reaching the ground springs up through the subtle pull of the string.

The chiefs interviewed the Prime Minister, and exposed the evil influence of yo-yos, so they were immediately banned.

Today the police paraded the streets and confiscated the yo-yos from everyone they saw playing with them.

The science of Attribution at work, how the modern day Greens, Liberals and warming alarmists must long for the political climate of 1930s Damascus, at climate where they could now ban cars, aircraft, cattle, pets, personal travel and ultimately people so they, the self-appointed Green Guardians of Gaia can protect Mother Earth from us carbon based bipedal maggots that infest the planet.

  1. It is the climate scare that has been the faux-green’s best sales gimmick. It allows them to sell a useless, inefficient , wildly overpriced product, to people who don’t want it….don’t need it, and can’t afford it, all the while convincing many people, including our gullible politicians, that it is…”for the greater good. Amazingly devious when you think about it.

  2. Reblogged this on Mothers Against Wind Turbines and commented:
    The faux-green windweasels use climate change as a scare tactic!

  3. ”One thing always holds true with the Greens and warming alarmists, they absolutely love a human catastrophe or tragedy”

    Well, during the first world war misery, Bolsheviks won; during the WW2 catastrophe Soviet empire was established

    now they rejoice when is a hurricane, cyclone, bushfires, starvation and famine womewhere

  4. The Greens are brainwashing themselves. Whenever science exposes another gaping hole in their fantasy anthropogenic global warming, theory, they resort to “97.5% of scientists agree . . .” omitting to say that they refer to the tiny number of scientists who responded to a rather deliberately vague question, and not the thousands of other climate scientists that disagree.

    Now that the Arctic Ice has expanded to record levels, no doubt that will be blamed on our use of fossil fuels too.

  5. What a classic bit of history. The warm cycle from the early 1910s to the mid 1940s caused a drought in Syria, and here is a modern day warming cycle having a similar affect. I suppose it did play some part in stirring up the people, but look at the Arab Spring being driven by the high price of grain, which was caused in large part by a deep drought in Russia. That really underscores how fragile the comfort zone of the world is with the current population. Changes in regional weather systems can stress world food supplies. If the NH is about to enter into a moderate cooling cycle of over a decade or longer, then food stress might become more prevalent. Not that there isn’t alternatives to maintain good order, but where is the proper leadership and foresight in today,s world to plan for the hard times?
