A good indicator that global warming is simply alarmism is the fact that it is said to be responsible for everything. While the statement here isn’t actually blaming global warming, it does pretend warmth caused during El Nino causes people to be shorter. Perhaps these people need some fossil fuel so they can run air conditioners. More importantly, they need petrol and a strong economy (and protected property rights and general freedoms) in order to be able to overall better their lives. Then they will be equipped to deal with mother nature as they see fit.

In general, global warming is blamed for most everything. http://dailysignal.com/2009/11/17/global-warming-ate-my-homework-100-things-blamed-on-global-warming/
Note, measured global warming is less than our ability to reliably measure temperature. Here is a more updated list with a note indicating how much warming there is on an average annual basis. http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/globalwarming2.html

Watts Up With That?

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

shrunk-kidsAnother day, another bizarre claim about global warming – this time a study which claims that global warming is making our children shorter.
According to a study performed by scientists from John Hopkins University and Bloomberg School of Medicine;

“El Niño is responsible for natural disasters and infectious disease outbreaks worldwide. During the 1997–1998 El Niño, northern Peru endured extreme rainfall and flooding. Since short stature may occur as a result of undernutrition or repeated infections during childhood, both of which are highly prevalent during natural disasters, we sought to determine if the 1997–1998 El Niño had an adverse effect on stature and body composition a decade later. In 2008–2009, we measured height, weight, and bioimpedance in a random sample of 2,095 children born between 1991 and 2001 in Tumbes, Peru.

Results
Height-for-age increased by 0.09 SD/year of birth between 1991 and 1997 (P < 0.001), indicating…
