The Great Global Warming Swindle — once such a mighty force that it threatened to impose poverty and socialism on the entire Western World — now finds itself pitifully clamoring for attention in schlock horror movie territory. From the increasingly farcical Huffington Post.
According to a report published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, large crabs stretching almost a meter wide have invaded the edge of the Antarctic, destroying ecosystems that took millions of years to build.
The King Crabs have colonized the “Antarctic abyss” of Palmer Deep, a basin more than 4,300 feet down, off the Antarctic Peninsula, reports the New Scientist.
What could have caused this plague of giant crabs? Global warming, of course:
Treehugger notes that the rise in temperature is mainly to blame, given it was previously too cold for the crabs to live. In short, the researchers conclude the King Crab colonization of the Antarctic is linked to climate change.
Fine, laugh now. But if we don’t let the government regulate our thermostats, soon the monster crabs will be coming after swimmers at the beach.
