Save the planet: destroy America

Terrorist as Eco-Crusader?  Bin Laden Blames U.S. for Global Warming, recommends we all read Chomsky, Obama agrees as usual….

Bin Laden makes common cause with the warmists

Andrew Bolt:

Osama bin Laden is naturally a global warming worrier, too, being an enemy of modernity and its freedoms:

Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden has called for the world to boycott American goods and the U.S. dollar, blaming the United States and other industrialized countries for global warming, according to a new audiotape released Friday.

In the tape, broadcast in part on Al-Jazeera television, bin Laden warned of the dangers of climate change and says that the way to stop it is to bring “the wheels of the American economy” to a halt.

He blamed Western industrialized nations for hunger, desertification and floods across the globe, and called for “drastic solutions” to global warming, and “not solutions that partially reduce the effect of climate change.”


Of course, bin Laden may just be appealling for allies in his crusade to bring back the Stone Age. Interesting that he feels they may be found among global warming extremists.

And indeed:

The speech, which included almost no religious rhetoric, could be an attempt by the terror leader to give his message an appeal beyond Islamic militants.

Is bin Laden’s endorsement of global warming science what they mean by “peer review”? And what will be this joint movement’s slogan: Save the planet! Destroy America.
