Good Grief: Guardian Attempts To Blame Titanic Sinking On “Climate Change”

Perhaps, instead of referring to climate change believers as being part of a cult, we should consider them to be like drug addicts. They have this need, like crack addicts jones for crack, to blame everything on “climate change”. Case in point, here’s Kate Ravilious at the UK Guardian (via Watts Up With That?)

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.

Kate’s point is not to note that warming happens, just like during the multiple warm periods during the Holocene. Oh, no. Her point is to Blame Mankind and gin up fear. But, there’s a wee bit of a problem, as Watts points out from this Accuweather article, noting that 1912 was, in fact, an average iceberg year. 1912 was also one of the coldest winters on record. Warmists have this need, this compulsion, this craving to link everything to “climate change”.
