Global Warming can cause almost everything

From Rick via email, is a link to a site that maintains active links to "Global Warming causes foo" stories. They also maintain a list of dead links, and label them as such. I'm pretty sure that I posted this a while back (the acne link looks familiar), but the juxtaposition of "coral reefs grow" and "coral reefs shrink" is all you really need to know about the ZOMG Thermageddon Oh Noes story.

But Rick says that the press is missing the real story. In his email:
If you ascribe to my theory that the reason women down south are better looking than up here is because they cannot hide under as much clothing and outerwear, then shouldn't northern women be getting better looking? I am just not seeing it.
So what do you say? Is the theory of Global Warming falsified by the "hotness deficit"? Leave your thoughts in the comments.

OMG! OMG! I cam up with the EXACT same theory about 10 years ago. Being from the south but working all over the country I noticed that further north you got the worse the women looked (in general, broad, average terms). However, I don't think it has to do with the climate, as I found it resets at the border (southern Canada women = hot, northern Canada women... not so much).

If you can arrange a federal grant for me, I will study the matter.

Alternately, I'm waiting for the Cam-babe-rian Explosion here in the high latitudes.
