EARLY on Friday morning, a thought struck: Has anybody yet been stupid enough to connect the earthquake that has ravaged Haiti with the alleged phenomenon of global warming?
It sounds like a long shot, given that tectonic plate movements have nothing to do with the Earth's surface temperature. If they were in fact related, recent heatwaves in Sydney and Melbourne would have had many of us buried in post-quake rubble, just like Haiti's tragic thousands.
But you'd be surprised at what people sometimes associate with global warming or climate change. Everything bad, basically.
So I entered the words, "Haiti climate change" in a Google news search. An item turned up that had been posted just 23 minutes earlier. It was an interview with Lethal Weapon star Danny Glover, who also happens to be a left-wing activist suffering serious hots for global warming and Caribbean politics.
