Global Warming Hysteria in Canada

Via Reason, a claim from a leftist Canadian web site that “Over 4.5 Billion people could die from Global Warming-related causes by 2012.”

The journal that published this claims to be “Canada’s new socially progressive and cross-cultural national newspaper.”

The article claims:
A recent scientific theory called the “hydrate hypothesis” says that historical global warming cycles have been caused by a feedback loop, where melting permafrost methane clathrates (also known as “hydrates”) spur local global warming, leading to further melting of clathrates and bacterial growth.

In other words, like western Siberia, the 400 billion tons of methane in permafrost hydrate will gradually melt, and the released methane will speed the melting. The effect of even a couple of billion tons of methane being emitted into the atmosphere each year would be catastrophic.

The “hydrate hypothesis” (if validated) spells the rapid onset of runaway catastrophic global warming. In fact, you should remember this moment when you learned about this feedback loop-it is an existencial [sic] turning point in your life.
We think it’s going to be memorable as a particularly extreme case of scare tactics used by the more irresponsible environmentalists.

The article goes on:
Atmospheric concentrations of CO2 rose by a record amount over the past year. It is the third successive year in which they have increased sharply. Scientists are at a loss to explain why the rapid rise has taken place, but fear the trend could be the first sign of runaway global warming.

Runaway Global Warming promises to literally burn-up agricultural areas into dust worldwide by 2012, causing global famine, anarchy, diseases, and war on a global scale as military powers including the U.S., Russia, and China, fight for control of the Earth’s remaining resources.

Over 4.5 billion people could die from Global Warming related causes by 2012, as planet Earth accelarates into a greed-driven horrific catastrophe.
One is reminded of those religious but unstable souls who read the book of Revelation and conclude that the End Times are upon us. The only difference being that this is a secular Armageddon. Rather than God, it is going to be Mother Nature that punishes us for our wicked ways.
