Warmist Mike Rivage-Seul: Hey, That Stranded Cruise Ship Reminds Me Of Climate Change

Yeah, starting out that way. First Rivage-Seul discusses all sorts of societal breakdowns during the 20th Century, then (via Tom Nelson)

(Kentucky.com) I was reminded of Lambert’s essay last week as I watched unfold the plight of the more than 4,000 passengers on the cruise ship, ironically named Triumph, and floundering precisely at the time of pre-Lenten Carnival.

An engine fire had caused the ship’s systems to shut down, and travelers were left without power.

As a result, everyone on the Triumph sweltered in their rooms as people were virtually forced to live on deck. Food became scarce. People started hoarding, looting and going off on each other over trivial matters.

Perhaps worst of all, toilets stopped functioning. And passengers were reduced to urinating in showers and defecating in plastic bags which they then handed over to crew members for sequestration and disposal once the liner reached shore. “It was the most embarrassing thing I’ve had to do in my life,” one woman passenger complained.

The fate of the Triumph seemed as eerily prophetic of the 21st century as the Titanic’s did of the 20th. This time we can see what’s coming — not icebergs, but a complete breakdown of systems — providing food, shelter, law and order.

I’m referring, of course, to the effects of climate change and the massive disruptions that promise to shut down entire eco-systems. Except to the willfully blind, the signs of approaching disaster are unmistakable — unprecedented drought, flooding, super-storms, earthquakes and tsunamis.

What a sick joke.

We’re going to get all that without a single minor ecosystem shutting down.

Obama and his communist-ideoloy-soaked pals are bringing this all to us as we watch.

Holy face-palm!!
Here’s a question: Why did the toilets stop working? Why were the lower cabin levels flooded with sewage? Why was there not enough food?

Don’t these cruise ships stock up on food? Isn’t there some form of backup power supply? If not, why not? How does a sealed & enclosed sewage system overflow across several decks above the bottom of the vessel?

I bet the global warming during the russian deathly winter caused the engines to shut down on purpose to show how it is to live in a cold environment while sweating in SH*T
