Plane crash caused by global warming

Over here in the USA, we had an airliner make an emergency landing in the Hudson River, near New York City. A flock of birds had gone into both engines.
Now we find out it was global warming. I knew it! That nasty global warming causes everything to go wrong!

Here's the link:

Global warming has caused the destruction of natural wild bird habitats. The other brilliant idea is that we're growing too much corn for ethanol. That draws more birds to the area, and the aircraft's engines suck 'em up and crash. Not too many farms in New York City, but who's counting?

Stay warm,
