Global Warming gets blamed for everything -- from an increase in the snake population in the US to the human conflict in Darfur, to an increase in polar bears seeking psychological counselling (OK, I made that last one up).
So naturally I was not too surprised by the following headline in the National Post:
"Stray cat explosion joins list of evils blamed on global warming"
I thought it was referring to a particular stray cat that exploded, perhaps because of heat exhaustion or over-heating or something.
Turns out they're talking about the stray cat population, and an explosion of another kind.
Apparently global warming works like this: if an animal population diminishes, it's because of global warming and it's a bad thing; if an animal population increases it's because of global warming and it's a bad thing.
I had no idea that prior to global warming the Earth existed in such a perfect equilibrium.
Oh, for a return to the golden era we once knew.
Al Gore, can you take us there?
