People really like lists. This may be the biggest 
thing i've learned since starting Eagle Rising. 
Everywhere you look on the internet you'll find 
them... lists of cutest cats, ugliest dogs, 
fastest cars, worst movies...on and on and on.

Most of these lists are utterly useless and serve only as ways to waste time.

Finally, the folks at the Daily Caller News 
Foundation have graced us with a list that we 
actually wanted to see and is truly useful!

Here it is - 8 Horrible Things Liberals Blame on Global Warming!

You’ve heard it from scientists, 
environmentalists and even Secretary of State 
John Kerry: global warming is the greatest 
existential threat faced by humanity.

It’s no wonder that all bad weather, every 
conflict, disease outbreaks, you-name-it is 
blamed on increasing levels of carbon dioxide and temperatures.

But wait! There’s been a nearly 18-year pause in 
global warming, yet the existential threat 
continues. In honor of the left’s persistence in 
sounding the climate alarm, The Daily Caller News 
Foundation presents the top things liberals blame on global warming.

1. Polar Vortex Remember last winter when it was 
freezing and you couldn’t get to work because you 
were snowed in? That was caused by global warming 
to White House science czar John Holdren. This is 
the guy who said there were too many people on 
Earth and we may need to 
imposed population controls ­ so you know he’s credible.

2. Colder Winters Winters have been trending 
colder for the last 20 years, according to data, 
but did you know this is because of global 
warming? Apparently, 
polar ice caps are making winters colder. Except 
both the 
and the Antarctic have seen sea ice growth, so
I’ve got some oceanfront property in Arizona I’d 
like to sell you. I’ll even throw in the Golden 
Gate for free (if sea level rises don’t destroy it first, of course).

3. California’s Drought Yes, you guessed it, 
global warming not only causes frigid weather and 
massive snowstorms, 
also causes extreme droughts (and apparently all 
weather). Plausible, but only if you ignore the 
history of droughts that were way worse than the current one.

4. The Antarctic’s Sea Ice Boom Antarctic sea ice 
keeps breaking records, 
1,224,000 square kilometers above the 1981-2010 
mean earlier this week. But the record ice levels 
are because of global warming, 
to people constantly trying to prove the world is 
ending. There are even those who say the south 
pole is really in danger of melting because it’s 
western ice sheet is collapsing ­ ignoring the 
has happened before in history without catastrophe.

5. Ebola Outbreak 
have asked if the current Ebola outbreak in 
Africa was made worse by global warming. An odd 
question since the world has not warmed for about 
18 years, but even more disturbing are 
who argue ebola (and literally every other 
disease) could get worse due to global warming. 
Certain diseases do thrive better in warmer 
weather, but it seems a little early to sound the 
alarm on warming-induced diseases.

6. Syrian Civil War Did you know the Syrian civil 
war was caused by global warming, and totally not 
because of the oppressive tactics of the Assad 
regime? Famine and drought caused mass migrations 
into Syria which sparked a massive conflict, 
to a climate/security analyst. But this of course 
ignores the fact that claims of global 
warming-induced conflicts are overblown and not 
borne out in the 
to actual military experts. Jeff Keuter, 
president of the Marshall Institute said “that 
methodology ignores and overlooks is the slow and 
gradual change in which most environmental things 
unwind, and it totally ignores the empirical 
evidence on the causes and correlates of conflict.”

7. Rape And Crime Along those same lines, 
scholars have tried to argue that global warming 
will cause rape and crime to increase because 
hotter weather apparently makes people more 
pissed off and violent. This runs counter to the 
fact that past global temperature increases have 
been accompanied by 
in global homicide rates since the early 1990s.

8. Sex Slaves And Prostitutes 
Democrats signed a resolution last year saying 
that global warming could lead to more sex 
workers and such because food production would be 
weakened (despite evidence that increased CO2 
levels is 
for crops and plant life). You should probably 
take this claim with a grain of salt (well, maybe a tablespoon of salt).
