After reading the article it should be obvious what "powerful" minds are at work here. The first paragraph reads as follows;
"A meeting of global crime experts has conceded that climate change could spark criminal activities in unconventional areas." Did you catch that? They "conceded" as if to say that they were reluctant to admit it in the first place, but ABC came to the rescue and made them admit it!
This poor guy has been reduced to stealing bottled water. Curse you global warming!
So, what is the new global warming booty so alluring to thieves? - Water, copper wiring, and crystal meth. What?!!! Now, I can see where water might have something to do with global warming, but copper wire and crystal meth? These people must be on some serious drugs!
In case you didn't go to the article to see this gem in professional journalism let's take a look at the following statement from The commission's executive director of national criminal intelligence, Kevin Kitson -
"He says over the counter bans on pseudoephedrine drugs will start to restrict the availability of the main ingredient in crystal methamphetamines.
"We're seeing a change, for example, in the way in which clandestine laboratories are constructed," he said.
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, (I'm still waiting for something about global warming) blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, ...
"We're making it very much harder for them to do that." End of story.
Now I ask you where is the global warming story? There is nothing in the story that corroborates the headline! Instead the story is about crystal meth. What does crystal meth have to do with global warming?!!!
These people are real Einsteins! This is the type of hysterical idiocy our media spews daily. What in the hell are they teaching our kids in college journalism schools? It would be better if they never went to these colleges. What a waste of time and money for the parents and students. Unfortunately one must have a degree read (indoctrination) from one of the "esteemed" journalism schools in order to get a job in the mainstream media.
As far as I can tell there are more horses rear ends in the mainstream media than there are horses! Global warming equals crime increases? - give me a break! No proof, or documentation, or evidence equals no story!
How many different ways can the GW extortioners be wrong and still retain any credibility? We have cited dozens of the more blatant examples here on Free World Survey. Somehow they get by with it. If scientists in any other field of study were this cavalier and careless with the facts they would have lost all credibility long before now. The global warming "scientists" and pundits seem to have infinite latitude in ignorance and outright fraud.
The real tragedy here is that many of the GW faithful will now see a story on drug crimes involving crystal meth (the global warming drug) and equate it with proof of climate change. They will no doubt conclude that global warming is causing the drug problem. I suppose it best to stop here before I give them any more hair brained ideas.
