Senate Candidate Blames Climate Change on East Coast Earthquake


Everyone knows that earthquakes generally happen because of movement within the Earth. Apparently, New Jersey Senate candidate Christina Khalil missed that in science class. She thinks a recent earthquake in her home state is the result of climate change.

And no, I am not kidding.

If you don’t live in the Northeast, you probably didn’t know that New Jersey and the surrounding states experienced a 4.8 magnitude earthquake recently.

With such a low magnitude, there was very minimal damage. However, needless to say, people were a bit shaken up about it, especially considering that The Garden State isn’t exactly known for having earthquakes, small or large.

Khalil is one of many in the state who had never experienced one, either at home or elsewhere. But unlike most of her fellow New Jersey residents, she let her political connections and rabid ideology get the better of her.

Taking to social media, this is what she wrote:

“I experienced my first earthquake in NJ. We never get earthquakes. The climate crisis is real. The weirdest experience ever.”

The post has since been deleted, likely due to the rightly deserved amount of backlash it received.

For the rest of us, we know that earthquakes are usually caused by “tectonic processes.” As Alan Buis of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration explains, this is forces within the solid Earth that drive changes in the structure of Earth’s crust, primarily the rupture of underground rock masses along faults.”

Naturally, this means all this movement is happening deep inside the Earth, far away from “the influence of surface temperatures and conditions.” Additionally, earthquakes happen all across the planet, meaning in all types of weather conditions, which is only more proof that the supposed rising temperature of the air would not affect this type of movement.

A simple search on any search engine will tell you the same.

Clearly, Khalil didn’t fact-check herself first – typical leftist behavior…
