Pet Peeve of The Day

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) -- Indonesia's environment minister said Tuesday that global warming was to blame after the capital of Jakarta was partially flooded, forcing thousands of people to flee homes and cutting off a highway to the international airport.

Can we just stop blaming every natural disaster on global warming. The last time I checked, flooding, homeless, and helpless Indonesians occurs about every 3-5 years and it's been going on as long as I can remember. "An Inconvenient Truth" has become a royal pain in the rear.

I have to agree. It's the "scapegoat syndrome." Used to be El Nino.

It's amazing how people can stick their heads in the sand.
