“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

It's what sharks do

The list of perfectly natural phenomena that are blamed on the global-warming hoax continues to grow....

Two deaths in the waters off California and Mexico last week and a spate of shark-inflicted injuries to surfers off Florida's Atlantic coast have left beachgoers seeking an explanation for a sudden surge in the number of strikes.

In the first four months of this year, there were four fatal shark attacks worldwide, compared with one in the whole of 2007, according to the International Shark Attack File at the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville.

Some experts suggest that an abundance of seals has attracted high numbers of sharks, while others believe that overfishing has hit their food chain. 'I'm not saying it doesn't happen, but it's a convenient excuse,' Burgess said. Another contributory factor to the location of shark attacks could be global warming and rising sea temperatures.

They're sharks! It's what they do! You cram more and more people into the water and you prevent the removal of seal populations from human areas, and it doesn't take a marine biologist to tell you the sharks are going to dine on people from time to time. If you took a stroll through the jungle in Bangladesh and a Bengal tiger ate you, would you blame it on global warming? It's not global warming....it's nature.

But Ed, I whine, this year's total has risen by a factor of 4! There are three more already than there were last year! Please, these numbers are so small, that you cannot explain them using "global warming." Out of the billions of swimmers in the oceans that there will be this year, its no wonder that more people don't get mauled to death by more sharks.
