Crabs believe in global warming; die for those beliefs.

James Taranto is his usual witty self in a recent Best of the Web:

Global Warmist Crab Antics
“Thousands of dead crabs have washed up along the Kent coast, with environmental experts believing the cold weather in Britain is to blame,” London’s Daily Mail reports. That can only mean one thing: global warming! Seriously, that is what these guys are claiming:

The Velvet swimming crabs – also called devil crabs – are thought to be victims of Britain’s coldest December in 120 years, which left sea temperatures much lower than average. . . . Coastal warden Tony Sykes said: ‘We suspect that climate change and warmer weather has lured the crabs towards the shoreline.

So this isn’t the same ridiculous claim we’ve been hearing lately, that global warming causes cold weather. Rather, the problem here seems to be that the crabs made the mistake of believing in global warming.
