Leftists are always making outlandish claims to support their hair-brained theories. If an Asian guy gets dragged off a plane, leftists blame our tangerine-hued POTUS. When trannies off themselves, leftists blame it on gender segregated bathrooms. Now, there’s this. Birdbrained leftists at Quartz are blaming sexual trafficking in the Philippines on climate change. Not kidding…
When Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines in November 2013, it was, at the time, the strongest storm in history ever to make landfall.
After the skies cleared, a second humanitarian disaster unfolded in the Tacloban Astrodome, a sports arena where thousands took shelter. An underground economy took root as women and girls were sold for food and scarce aid supplies, or trafficked into forced labor and sex work by recruiters offering jobs and scholarships.
As severe storms and rising sea levels wear down coastal regions, women and girls are at ever-greater risk. Climate change is a new push factor for human trafficking; its effects destroy livelihoods and place women and children in post-catastrophe situations that traffickers exploit.
Um, that’s not climate change, bruh. That’s called falling on hard times. As unfortunate as that is, linking that back to climate change is a bit of a stretch…
The geniuses over at Quartz are quick to trace all unpleasantness in the world back to the dreaded global wa-, er, global coo-, er, climate change. They even blame the brutality of those ISIS dickbags on the thermometer. As if ISIS’ origins were a mystery to begin with. It’s not like their holy book is chock-full of rape, marrying children, or the taking of heads.
Does Quartz know hurricanes, twisters, and earthquakes have always happened? Storms don’t magically appear as soon as coal was mined by guys wearing flashlight helmets. This planet was a giant ice cube about 11,000 years ago. We were thawing out long before Henry Ford rolled his first T-bucket off the assembly line.
If their arguments had any merit, the left wouldn’t make claims that, by comparison, make the flat earth theory seem plausible.
