Swarm Of 30 Million Locusts Consumes Egypt

This certainly looks like the end of the world. The last time a swarm of a similar magnitude occurred was 2004, causing massive crop damage across the country. The prevalence of locust mega-outbreaks is expected to increase with global warming:

In Cairo, residents burned tires to create a black fog to keep the locusts from settling in the city. Swarms were also reported to have reached Egypt’s Red Sea city of Zafarana, some 200 kilometers (124 miles) from Cairo. The Egyptian Ministry of Agriculture issued a statement saying it had set up task forces to deal with the locust plague.

    And like everything else that happens in the world, let’s link it to global warming in some way. Nonsense.

    they’re actually:

    mini-drones
    Israeli GMOed hoppers
    or in Thailand, lunch

      The A.D.L. strikes again. No surprise on this one though, if you think about it. They probably wanted to stop this thing before videos of guys whacking rocks with sticks started popping up

  10. That’s crazy. Everything that’s going on their trying to find some logic about it. There is nothing logical about all the things going on, just Biblical!

    Do you ever try to predict what the comments on a story will be before you look. It’s become kind of a parlor game in my house. (Chuckle)

    I looked at this just before scanning another article which mentions how “the feminine typically reigns supreme in that micro-verse”, regarding insect sexuality. Pretty obvious what happened.

    The original article says this happens every year. So it’s not really news. And it’s certainly nothing to do the the Book of Fables. (biblical)
