Airplane Windshields Crack, Blame Global Warming

Weird phenomena in Colorodo (from MSNBC)

The storm also blasted the metropolitan area with wind as high as 100 mph. At Denver International Airport, officials were still “baffled” Saturday by cracks that formed during the storm in the windshields of 12 airliners, airport spokesman Steve Snyder said.

Baffled. Let's dig deeper into the article, by the AP, which is being edited by some carriers of the article (not making a negative remark, FYI)

SkyWest Airlines reported cracked windshields on eight planes that were taking off or landing Friday as winds gusted up to 50 mph, spokeswoman Marissa Snow said. One plane's windshield cracked while it was airborne.

"Only the outermost layer was affected," Snow said of the windshields, which are made from multiple layers of glass.

Two Frontier Airlines Airbus planes had their windshields crack while airborne, while two other windshields cracked while at the gate, airline spokesman Joe Hodas said.

"It's not exactly unusual weather for Denver," Hodas said. "We don't know what it is and it's kind of a mystery at this point."

Spokesman Steve Snyder said windshields cracked on several different makes and models of airplanes from several airlines, though he did not immediately know which and how many. None of the pilots reported flying debris, Snyder said.

"Everybody is fairly baffled by it," Snyder said.

It's cold. It's windy. It's global warming, baby!

Again, with crazy mysterious weather occurring all over the globe, we are only seeing more evidence of global warming. We must stop global warming NOW! The global warming deniers will kill us all if we let them get in the way.

Stop. Global. Warming. NOW!

I hope that was a snarky comment by one of the "freepers," but, being the Hufftard Post, doubtful.

Some commenters mention bad de-icing agents, but, many of the planes were landing. Would need contaminated de-icing agents at multiple airports. So, must be global warming.

    Isn’t it amazing how everything is suddenly global warmings fault? Who the hell caused global warming though I wonder? Gee…ooops we did. Blame, blame, blame, never fix.

  2. Well, I do not believe that Man has more then a slight influence on global warming. Micro-climatic warming, yes, such as around cities and urban areas, but globally.
