Surprise: Cult Of Climastrology Blames Italy Earthquake On ‘Climate Change’

One of the hallmarks of a cult is their opposition to independent thought, which the further threat to remove any who question the dogma. Then there’s the group think and cognitive dissonance. A focus on an imagined enemy. And let’s not forget circular logic and magical think where everything is linked to their pet cause

People are searching for answers after an earthquake in Italy left hundreds dead, and naturally people are looking to the Internet for guidance. So, did climate change cause the Italy earthquake? While mainstream science is starting to link climate change with earthquakes, the geophysical feedback mechanisms that are in play in a warming climate aren’t well-understood yet.

Back to those studies linking earthquakes to climate change: most of them focus on how earthquakes can add to the greenhouse gas effect feeding into global warming. For example, methane release can occur if the earthquake takes place in an area with a large amount of methane gas pockets, or in areas where fracking is occurring.

The notion of melting glaciers and land rebound are mentioned, but, of course, the article ends with a “we just don’t know right now” after pretty much implying that it was ‘climate change.’ Then we have this

Sigh. There is a plate boundary that runs right through Italy, where the African plate is diving under the European plate. This is why rock from the African plate shows up in the Matterhorn. The plate is creating the Alps. This is the cause of the earthquakes. Hey, don’t ask me, ask a geologist

A geologist in Poland says that the magnitude 6 earthquake in central Italy was caused by the slow but constant under-surface movement of the African Plate toward Europe.

Jerzy Zaba of the Silesian University in Katowice, in southern Poland, said Wednesday that a wedge-shaped front of the African Plate is pressing into the Eurasian Plate in the Adriatic Sea region and pushes into the neighboring regions, like Italy’s Apennine Mountains. The tension that accumulates leads to a sudden release in the form of under-surface rock movement that causes earth tremors.

Zaba told Polish PAP agency that the African Plate is moving northwards at the speed of up to 5 centimeters (2 inches) a year.

Cults like to assign the causes of disasters to the actions of their deities or boogeymen.

    No ones interested in the FACTS anymore if it doesnt fit their political narrative….and that goes for ALL SIDES.

    People are searching for answers” for why warmists are such zealous mystics that they keep coming up with nonsense to explain everything that they are too ignorant to understand.

  3. Stosh says:

    Good to know Italy has never known to have earthquakes or volcanoes before climate fraud. The residents of Pompeii deserved what they got for driving SUVs

  4. Dana says:

    Perhaps if the warmists could tell us what isn’t caused by global warming climate change, just so we’d know. It’s obviously going to be a very short list.

  5. Jeffery says:

    Every process on Earth occurs on a planet with a rapidly warming surface, but unless someone presents specific valid evidence, it’s clear that precious few earthquakes are caused by global warming.

  6. Jeffery says:

    Even if wrong about earthquakes people you slur as “warmists” are scientifically ahead of global warming ‘skeptics’.

    Of course they are…..and there is another moral truth…….When a Democrat gets uncomfortable with poll numbers they start screaming the other side is racists.

    Right now….this very moment Hillary is giving a speech blaming all the ills of the world on Donald Trump the racist who hates black people……

    LOLOLOLOLOL….you know that guy who hires more blacks, gays, lesbians, and Women then Hillary has probably MET in her lifetime.

    But after all….Trump is on the right of Lenin so he must be a racist…..

    Its the only card she has left and when that one fails it will be hes picking on an elderly white women who is Sick and needs your help…….

    Just like flat-earther’s or scientists who believed the earth to be the center of the universe were “scientifically ahead” in their day. After all, it was “settled science”. Yeah, we’re skeptics, we’re heretics, we’re the ones you would burn at the stake if you could. You do realize scientists are supposed to be skeptical?

    BTW, “warmist” is not a slur, it’s a description. Dumbasses is a slur, so they’re dumbass warmists.

  9. Jeffery says:

    The difference between climate realists (“warmists”) and geocentrists is that evidence supports climate realism, i.e., greenhouse gases are causing the Earth’s surface to warm.

    There is never settled science. Just as in the 1600s as knowledge increased and the religious notion that the Earth was the center of the universe was replaced, the theory of AGW can be replaced by a new theory based on better experiments and observations. So don’t give up hope that some previously magical process will be discovered that accounts for this bout of rapid warming. Until that time we need to focus on evidence and reality.

    Of course over 1200 years ago Islamic scholars were already questioning the Ptolomeic system, just as you now question the theory of AGW. You may be a Muslim!

    And before Christ was born, Chaldean/Babylonian (now Iraq) astronomers described that the Earth orbited the Sun.

    We can’t really blame our ancient brothers and sisters though for not knowing what we know. They didn’t have the instant communications that we have now. How could the Chinese, the Aztecs or even the Normans know what the Chaldeans had already surmised centuries earlier? The common people of a thousand years ago had no idea that their Earth was a tiny, insignificant speck of dust in the universe. Just as a baby or a trump thinks they’re the center of the universe, so too our ancestors. Give them a break, they didn’t have the scientific tools and accumulated knowledge that you have access to.

    These days if a scientist discovers an alternate valid explanation for the current period of rapid warming we can read about almost instantly!

    Geological History is replete with many, many RAPID WARMING and RAPID COOLING periods….as little as two centuries which is what we are looking at now.

    In fact the sudden onset of the last ice period took place in about 2 centuries most believe because of the entire shut down of the warm ocean currents moving up the Eastern Seaboard and over to Northern Europe.

    Without these currents Most of the Northern Hemisphere is nearly uninhabitable.

    Who knows….CO2 is always associated with warming and cooling.

    Why is that?

    I personally don’t care if your right or wrong…..However the leftist tend to go way, way overboard on everything they are ALLOWED TO GET AWAY WITH….which would include Destroying the fossil fuel industry with NOTHING to replace the myraid uses of fossil fuels.

    ITs quite simple……180 countries just need to stop using Fossil Fuels and build windmills and solar panels….

    But of course they wont and continue to blame it on deniers……

    The facts are quite clear…..Leftists want no solutions…..that would make them irrelevant.
