In a video message that ran during a celebrity #Harvey fundraiser earlier this month, noted scientist Beyoncé told viewers that the effects of climate change were being seen every day, from a monsoon in India to an earthquake in Mexico.
Even far-left Mother Jones did a fact-check of sorts on Beyoncé’s video and could only claim that the link between earthquakes and climate change is “not so clear.” In other words, it doesn’t exist.
But now that another earthquake has hit south of Mexico City (not to mention the magnitude 3.6 earthquake that shook the city of Westwood, Calif., overnight), there can be no denying the link between climate change and earthquakes. Just ask Amy Siskind, president of The New Agenda, a women’s and LBGTQ rights group.
We r having #earthquake & hurricanes in rapid succession-& a regime who doesn't believe in climate change & makes scientific data disappear.

Repent! Repent! Repent your heretical climate sins or more natural disasters are on their way! https://t.co/lOYGgHNbmi

Any time the planet does something bad, it's clearly an indication of Gaia's anger over man's actions. We must act now to appease the gods! https://t.co/8xKUF0FPyO

Hurricanes in rapid succession? During hurricane season? And now it seems that earthquakes are multiplying as well.

Wait… hang on… you're blaming earthquakes on Climate Change?
Come on, you aren't this stupid, are you?https://t.co/QoVRN2wq0n

Please enlighten us how climate change makes earthquakes. This should be good. https://t.co/tp3c8STTZd

Please Amy 'the science wizard' Siskind
How are earthquakes caused by climate change? https://t.co/uqPxWZoIPs

Please, enlighten me, how many ppm increase in atmospheric CO2 to double the number of earthquakes? https://t.co/txBENiBv7q

Weren’t you paying attention? The Trump regime made all the scientific data disappear! It’s gone.
Here's an example of an anti-science comment disguised as a pro-science statement. https://t.co/4rDFM5CM9p

you are obsessed with climate change and plate tectonics. you realize they have nothing to do with one another, right? https://t.co/L9DnpfSdhD

Plate tectonics have nothing to do with climate. https://t.co/uJ2MKQzixX

Your carbon footprint is now responsible for tectonic plate movement. Asteroid impacts coming next. https://t.co/Y8ahmrlyPY

Liberals actually believe imaginary "climate change" causes earthquakes?
And they wonder why adults don't take them seriously? https://t.co/qFc66rUSPH

Is this based on scientific research conducted by Professor Beyonce? https://t.co/kPZ8KPhaQp

Are you questioning Beyoncé and her scientific credentials?
"Rapid succession" cuz of Trump.
Mother Nature is pissed off that he got elected.
You're nuts. https://t.co/BTTnIUNAPB

Before you laugh at Amy, recall that in the 4th century BCE Aristotle also theorized that earthquakes were caused by subterranean wind. https://t.co/IMfb5iH2Hk

As long as everyone’s laughing …
If the planet keeps getting hotter & hotter is it "comical" to say the tectonic plates won't get hot as well? Or is it just common sense

Where’s Bill Nye to explain all of this when you need him?
