First it killed adorable polar bears and caused Darfur; now the Loch Ness Monster! (h/t Ace)
A February 13 article in the UK's Daily Mail reporting the retirement of legendary American Nessie hunter Robert Rines, alerted the world to yet another example of the growing devastation of global warming.
The 85-year-old WWII veteran said after 40 years, he is “running out of age” but will try one more time to see Nessie and her "25ft-long hump," but he isn't holding out much hope.
Rines now fears global warming has struck down the magnificent Nessie:
Despite having hundreds of sonar contacts over the years, the trail has since gone cold and Rines believes that Nessie may be dead, a victim of global warming (bold mine).
He still wants to check almost 100 contacts on the floor of the loch, believing one may be the monster's remains.
It's just so amazing that global warming can be responsible for both early snowfall and a late snowstorm. Drought and flooding. Increased ocean salinity and decreased ocean salinity. How interesting that global warming is so...flexible. Now it's involved in cryptozoology.
Global warming really does get around. It killed Nessie, caused tornadoes, made it snow in India, wiped out the dinosaurs and eliminated Neanderthal Man.
Could the Yeti be next? I'm sure by now Anderson Cooper and Jeff Corwin have their sherpas booked.
