Pirates seized a record 1,181 hostages in 2010 (link here to BBC story), thereby disproving that global warming is on the rise. As His Noodly Greatness has taught us, the decline in pirates over the years has directly correlated to the rise in ocean temperatures. Therefore, since pirate activity is on the rise, ocean temperatures will inevitably decline as well! It doesn't matter how many nations send their navies into the Indian Ocean and Arabian sea, the pirates are a wily bunch. Ramen!
So much for that dream vacation to the Seychelles I've always dreamed of. If rising ocean levels don't wipe out the islands, the pirates will make it less than enjoyable.
