Savage irony

That's how Eamonn Dunphy described the destruction wrought by Hurricane Katrina. "Savage irony" because (I think) the US didn't sign the Kyoto accord & this storm may have (big may) been aided by climate change. What an ignorant moron.

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the US is actually closer to complying with its limits under Kyoto than is Ireland, which actually signed up. If true, then it would be savage irony if Dublin were evacuated due to flooding and towns from Belfast to Wexford were destroyed with hundreds of lives lost.
