Save The Manatees From Climate Change!

And, by climate change, I of course mean

The unusually cold weather that struck Florida in January did more than damage crops and citrus trees.

It has also caused an unprecedented number of deaths among Florida’s beloved residents, the endangered West Indies manatees.

Twisting and flopping in the shallow water, Baby Coral probably doesn’t realize just how lucky she is. When this 3-year-old female manatee was brought into Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo last month, she was 300 pounds underweight, unable to eat.

Her skin was covered with small white, blister-like lesions known as “Florida frostbite,” the result of exposure to cold temperatures.

Of course, we all know that cold weather is now caused by greenhouse gases from people driving their SUVs and powering their homes.

BTW, getting beyond the wackadoodleness of AGW, manatees do, in fact, rock, so, you can make a donation to Save The Manatees, as I do yearly. I’ve seen the manatees in at Sea World Florida, in the “wild” in Clearwater, and remember my Grampy (RIP) showing me them in Biscayne Bay when I was a young lad.

    You might get a kick out of two new videos:

    “Frozen Wasteland”

    and one of its replies:

    “Climategate Glaciergate…: Hitler’s Last Straw”

    which you can find here:

    The second one is the one with two women in the picture.
    The caption is partially obscured, it says:
    “We told so many lies, young scientists are totally [confused]”

    Here is the lead in from the clips comment page:

    “As chief operating officer for the cabal of Billionaires who control the global warming scam, Hitler quickly realizes the long range implications of “Glaciergate”.”

  2. Those were excellent, Mr. Xyz, appreciate the heads up.
