Qatar and dead fish

Is this panel of Qatari environmental experts right when they say that the dead fish washing ashore on Qatar's beaches are the victims of global warming, and not of the polluted effluent of passing ships?

Or is this one in an upcoming series of cynical attempts by governments to pass off their responsibility for local pollution on a global problem over which they have little control?

I don't know.

But as it finally gains acceptance among world leaders, expect "global warming" to get the blame for a whole lot of unrelated environmental problems.
