Global warming causing the trafficking of girls in Africa shock horror

You can't say this is a case of global warming hysteria jumping the shark.

That happened years ago. The single mangy hedgehog as victim of climate change is still my personal favourite.
Since there has been NO global warming for at least the last 10 years, the problems noted below could not be caused by global warming

Lack of adequate education, extreme poverty and the encroaching fallout of climate change is now forcing Masaai parents in the Mar region of Kenya, Africa to ‘sell off’ their young underage daughters to a group of human traffickers who are posing as white foreign tourists.

It's a bit like World Vision  getting a hopelessly naive Hugh Jackman to "highlight" the effects of climate change in Ethiopia, because it is suffering a drought.

An effective, if totally dishonest, publicity stunt.

I mean, for those of us who have been around long enough, we know that Ethiopia and droughts are no strangers and we've seen much worse in the past.
