Your Fault: ‘Climate Change’ Ravaged Failed State Of Libya With Flooding

All because you refuse to live in a tiny house, take the train, and only eat plants

Libya’s floods are result of climate crisis meeting a failed state

When the climate crisis meets a failed state, the outcome is the kind of disaster that Libya is witnessing in Derna.

Any city would have struggled with the extraordinary level of precipitation that Storm Daniel visited upon Libya’s northern coast. In its earlier, milder form, the storm caused severe damage in Greece before it crossed the Mediterranean.

Nevertheless, the extent of the devastation – a quarter of a city was swept into the sea in what is being described as Libya’s 9/11 – is also a function of the country’s failed politics.

After the bloody western-backed ousting of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, the country has mainly been governed by two rival administrations, one in Tripoli and the other in Tobruk, each supported by an assembly of rival external actors including Turkey, the UAE, Qatar, Egypt and Russia’s Wagner group.

Wait, no Blaming of Barack Obama for his foolish sorta-war which led to the rise of various factions of Islamic jihadis, including ISIS, leading to the horrendous Benghazi disaster? The article spends many more paragraphs not on ‘climate chagne’ but on the failed state, leading to

Bringing this context to Derna, the city that has long suffered since Gaddafi’s demise, either by being in the hands of Islamic State or since its recapture by Haftar in 2016, and infrastructure investment has always been at a premium. Haftar, whose secondary education was in the city, has also tried to keep close control of the Derna’s politics. (snip)

The two large dams built in the narrow valley above Derna were an accident waiting to happen, especially because poorly constructed housing built close to the river had become increasingly dense and high-rise. Built in the 1970s by a Yugoslav company, the risk posed by the two dams and their state of decay was the subject of a lengthy academic article in 2022, calculating what weight of water would crush them and how it might run off given the topography.

In fact, there is nothing else about Hotcoldwetdry in the piece besides the headling and that first paragraph, same as most articles on this horrible disaster, with the most recent news at the time of writing this (11am) being 6,000 dead and thousands missing. the climate cult and their Credentialed Media partners never lets a good disaster go to waste, and will always link global boiling to the disaster. But, um

(Landslide Blog) There is an article in Arabic on the News Libya website that explains the history of the dams. It notes that Derna has been subject to a sequence of floods emanating from the Wadi, including major events in 1941, 1959 and 1968. The 1959 flood appears to have been particularly catastrophic.

Flooding in the region is nothing new. It happens periodically. Derna may be in Libya, which is mostly a desert nation, but, it is right on the Mediterranean, directly south of Greece.  Big storms will happen now and then. It has nothing to do with the “climate crisis”.

Of course, there are still cult members like this

    So what do earthquakes have to do with climate change?

    More ignoramuses spouting off about things they know little about.

  2. wildman says:

    climate change builds dams now? dams that fail?

    • Professor Hale says:

      They call them dams, but they are really just gravel piles over a gully that is dry most of the year. The flash flood from the storm that hit simply washed away the “dams”. They would not have been an obstacle even if they were in good repair, and they were not. Think “drainage pond” sized, not Grand Coolie Dam. You can see what they used to look like on Google earth. Look closely or you will miss them. Google search Derna and look for the Derna wadi.

    Dear World:

    I don’t give a shit about Libya taking it in the shorts. They are getting what they deserve, just like NYC, Chicago and other “sanctuary cities” are getting what they deserve.

    • Professor Hale says:

      I disagree. No one deserves that. Sure, you could say that living in a shithole country is their fault. You could say that living in a place with no building codes and rampant corruption is their fault. But you can’t blame it on them that Hillary Clinton used the US Government to remove and then kill Moamar Khadaffi. Libya has not had a stable or effective government since then. That is on Hillary. Just imagine the death toll she could have inflicted on the brown people of the world if she had been President and not just SecState.
