Your Flat Screen TV Is Causing The Somalia Drought

No, really

The wackadoodle part of the NY Times article

South Sudan and Somalia, for instance, have relatively few vehicles and almost no industry. But their fields are drying up and their pastureland is vanishing, scientists say, partly because of the global effects of pollution. People in these countries suffer from other people’s driving, other people’s manufacturing and other people’s attachment to things like flat-screen TVs and iPads that most Somalis and South Sudanese will touch only in their dreams.

I guess it’s time for Warmists like Bill McKibben to stop using TVs and smartphones.

    Might the recent rapid (in geologic terms) increase in the Earth’s mean surface temperature increase the probability of droughts in certain regions? Scientists think that it might, but how can they know as much as a blogger?

  2. Dana says:

    Hey, California suffered years and years of drought under Barack Hussein Obama, but once Donald Trump took over, the Pyrite State’s drought ended. Clearly, the Somalis need their version of Mr Trump to take over, and all will be well.

    Flat screen LED and LCD TVs consume about 1/3 the power of the previous generation of CRT TVs that everyone once used.

  4. John Glanton says:

    In 1974, scientists at the National Academy of Scientists said that a prolonged drought in African Sahel was caused by global cooling and recommended evacuation 6 million inhabitants. This global cooling was caused by soot and smog from power plants used to fuel your addiction to your fancy new color CRT television sets.

  5. John Glanton says:

    I wonder what the authors would attribute the massive increase in Sahel region vegetation from 1982 to 2005? Right through the rapid growth of flat screen TVs and cellphones.

    “scientists say”. That proves it. “Party because….” What part?- 1%? 10%? 20%?. In other words, you don’t know. “Increase the probability of droughts?” Yes, they were supposed to increase the drought possibility in California and Texas so much that they were to be permanent droughts. Until it rained so much and then they weren’t. And again, there’s no way we know warming is rapid.

    What is true is there is an increasing famine, or threat of famine, in the conflict-ridden countries Somalia, South Sudan, Nigeria, and Yemen. Contributing factors include drought, political corruption, war, and ethnic cleansing by Islamic Extremists. Aide workers are being sealed off from conflict areas and are being attacked and murdered by Islamic extremists.

    Blaming this real crisis on global warming is the most cynical form of idealogical opportunism. People are dying every day while leftists pray to a false idol. Real temperatures in Africa (as opposed to the fake adjusted temperatures) are normal.

  8. Jeffery says:

    Do Covians object to trump’s support of bioengineering to reduce the amount of Sun energy reaching the Earth? This amounts to spraying sulfate and similar aerosols into the upper atmosphere to reflect some of the incoming sunlight.

    Is your support for this lunatic unlimited?

      WTF?
      You’re losing it, little guy.
      Was this a topic discussed with another retired academic or what?
