Giving New Meaning to “Climate Disruption” — Disrupting Marriages?

If you ask the White House, every single American problem and crisis of the past six years has been the fault of George W. Bush. From the economy to the heartbreak of psoriasis (that would be a health care issue, of course), Ol’ Dubya has been pilloried as the root cause of virtually every negative event in our society.

Recognizing that the expiration date for that excuse is nigh, and–though the Administration continues to demonstrate they’re not done using it–we need to discover a new justification to skirt personal responsibility for transgression.

Therefore, I give you today’s Genesis 3:12 Award Nominee: Climate Change.

The weather has repeatedly been blamed for the bad economy, and is being used as a whipping-boy for every possible future problem that can be imagined (and some people have amazing imaginations), but now a new group has caught the wave of “not my fault” and is riding it to their own rescue: Cheating Spouses.

Yes, it’s true… philanderers are claiming Global Warming allegedly causes them to break one of the Ten Commandments. If you want to have sex with that woman, Miss Whoever-She-Is—no matter what the definition of “is” is—apparently you can now just blame it on the weather.

From the Miami New Times blog: “Global Warming Makes Couples Cheat, Says Dating Website.”

If you’re married in Miami, you might want to get out of town this summer. No, not to avoid the hurricanes — to avoid a nasty divorce.

A new report blames global warming for rising rates of infidelity, especially bad news for couples in Miami, where rising tides and raging hurricanes remind us all how much extracurricular sex we could be having on a daily basis.

Victoria Milan, a dating website for people looking to cheat on their significant other, surveyed 5,000 of its members, both men and women. A shocking 72% of them responded that yes, their own Al Gore-esque stress about unpredictable weather is the cause of their extra-marital dalliances. Guess the fact of their existing committed relationships was just an inconvenient truth.
