Newsweek Blames Nepal Earthquake on Climate Change

newsweek climate

They’re still pulling bodies out of the rubble in Nepal, but already Newsweek have come out of the blocks to blame the tragedy on climate change. In a piece titled “More Fatal Earthquakes to Come,Newsweek tastelessly revealed what they claimed to be  “the untold – and terrifying – story behind the earthquake“:

“It’s the ebb and flow of rainwater… Recently discovered, that causal factor is seen by a growing body of scientists as further proof that climate change can affect the underlying structure of the Earth”

Apparently our rising sea levels are literally pushing down on the earth’s crust and pressuring faultines into being more active. Funny then, that there’s 700 years of regularly recorded earthquakes in Nepal…
