Added assurance from the EPA: There’s no climate-change basis for “Sharknado”

posted at 1:41 pm on July 12, 2013 by

It isn’t often that the Environmental Protection agency these days declines to link any form of epic natural catastrophe, real or imagined, to an adverse side effect of climate change — but I guess “Sharknado” jumped even the EPA’s shark.

Oh, good. I was worried.

Wait a minute, I clearly remember the news anchor saying that the cause was clearly global warming. The only surprise, though, was that it took nine minutes into the movie for that statement to be made. Of course, that included commercials. As bad as the movie was, (and it was really bad) it was better than the movies that preceded it and followed it on SyFi. Kind of like the zombie apocalypse with fish.

“may lead”?

A subtle change of position by the EPA?

Whatever happened to “end of life as we know it”?

ScyFy has been producing a lot of Lefty Environut crap since the silly rebranding from SciFi.

#Climate change may lead to rising sea levels & more intense storms, but currently no science to support the occurrence of a #Sharknado.

When has a lack of science mattered to the EPA?

Finally: Something that isn’t caused by global warming.

What a coincidence, there’s no basis for climate change either.

There is as much science to back up “Sharknado” as there is for “An Inconvenient Truth,” and it didn’t have any hot chicks.

I remember the same reaction when I saw “The Day After Tomorrow.” Actually, Sharknado was more believable,

Shucks. At least, there will always be manbearpig to blame our problems on.

But we should dismantle western civilization, just to be sure.

So were they serious about this or just funnin’? You can’t always tell with the EPA.

So were they serious about this or just funnin’? You can’t always tell with the EPA.

The EPA is always serious, but they are a joke. Or maybe it’s that they are always funnin’, but their sense of humor runs to destroying lives and countries? Either way they suck.

Not as funny as the usual EPA announcements.
