Wow. There really isn't anything for which global warming isn't blamed

Now it's the famous "Blackhawk Down" event.

A top Democrat told high school students gathered at the U.S. Capitol Thursday that climate change caused Hurricane Katrina and the conflict in Darfur, which led to the “black hawk down” battle between U.S. troops and Somali rebels. Rep. Edward Markey (D-Mass.), chairman of the House (Select) Energy Independence and Global Warming Committee, also equated the drive for global warming legislation with the drive for women’s suffrage in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

"To say you know the conflict was caused by global warming is to show how really ignorant you are of the scientific issues involved,” was the response of Myron Ebell, director of Energy and Global Warming Policy at CEI. Mainly 'cause that area of the world is subject to drought conditions all the friggin' time.

Meanwhile, the Space and Science Research Center has noted that the period of planet-wide warming is over, and a cooling period has begun.
