Global warming is causing earthquakes and tsunamis says liberal author

Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues, was on the Joy Behar Show the other day denigrating Sarah Palin for having "a level of intelligence that hasn't really evolved yet." Proof? Palin does not believe in global warming.

As Joy Behar notes, "Every scientist at every note believes in it." And what is it that convinces Ms. Ensler, science maven extraordinaire, of the verity of global warming? "We just kind of have to walk around the world at this point and look at what is happening to nature and earthquakes and tsunamis." Sounds like the kind of proof that "every scientist at every note" would call rigorous.

A couple months ago I heard a caller on a radio talk show assert the same thing. When the host tried to disabuse him of the notion that tsunamis are caused by global warming he would have none of it. The man was obviously ignorant, so I laughed it off. Now a successful author, obviously one with "evolved intelligence," repeats the same fantasy. Where is the Left getting its talking points? I guess it's equivalent to Al Gore claiming that the earth's core is millions of degrees hot. If the intellectual leaders of the Left are so ignorant of the most basic facts about how our world works, what hope is there for their credulous followers?

Maybe some of the stimulus money could fund remedial science courses for liberals on NPR and PBS. Nothing too rigorous: animation should be sufficient for someone with "evolved intelligence" such as Ms. Ensler.
