No, no, no alarmism here
(Esquire) South Carolina has a seacoast, which apparently has eluded the notice of Governor Nikki (Kelly Ayotte Stole My Place In Line!) Haley, because her administration evidently has decided that the state is uniquely immune to the Great Climate Change Hoax, which greedy scientists insist will make the oceans bigger if we don’t watch out. So, when her state’s wildlife department compiled a report on the effect that the GCCH could have on South Carolina, Haley and her minions responded to it in the time-honored free-market way. They buried the report. It did, alas, leak, and now the former chief of the state’s wildlife department is making noise about it.
What does the report say?
“From a wildlife and natural resources standpoint, climate change is definitely going to have an impact,” said Frampton, who wrote a two-page foreword to the climate report. The climate report lists potentially substantial threats to South Carolina – ranging from the invasion of exotic eels and piranha to flooding of seaside homes and destruction of ecologically valuable marshes if temperatures continue to rise.
Sadly, climate astrologers really believe this. Alas, they don’t believe in adjusting their own lives to match their rhetoric.
The DNR’s draft study says that, with temperatures in the South projected to rise up to 9 degrees over the next 70 years, the Palmetto State should prepare for increases in wildlife disease, loss of prime duck hunting habitat and the potential invasion of non-native species such as piranha and Asian swamp eels. Many such exotic species have taken hold in Florida, but as temperatures rise, could move into South Carolina, the report said.
