The Guardian tries to claim global warming sank the Titanic – research says the exact opposite

Good grief, what are the “Global Warm-inistas” gonna blame on Climate Change/AGW next?  The Civil War, maybe?  The Black Death?  The Chicago Cubs?  …Why not?

Watts Up With That?

Kate Ravilious makes this nutty claim at The Guardian:

But in fact the catastrophe may have been set in motion by a warm, wet year over Greenland in 1908, resulting in greater snow accumulation. Writing in the journal Weather, Grant Bigg and David Wilton of Sheffield University explain how the snow soaked through cracks in the ice sheet, encouraging excess iceberg calving over the following few years. Soberingly, global warming has increased iceberg hazard greatly in recent decades, making years like 1912 more the norm than the exception.

Yeah, but have a look at what this research actually says and you’ll understand why The Guardian is nothing more than agitprop.

    AGW is responsible for my weight gain, too! SEE! It’s NOT my fault!

  3. hahahaha! Just loved Pgh’s comment. I have (actually we each have) a big gas guzzling SUV. I think they were made by the US Army…

    Why doesn’t this stuff ever make the news. Citizens are so dumbed down. So is congress…
