Strange but true – Bin Laden on Global Warming

From My Way News

The world of climate change alarmism just got a new ally. No I’m not kidding.

http://halganka.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/osama-bin-laden-1998-thumb.jpg?w=400&h=276

CAIRO (AP) – Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden has called in a new audiotape for the world to boycott American goods and the U.S. dollar, blaming the United States and other industrialized countries for global warming.

In the tape, aired in part on Al-Jazeera television Friday, bin Laden warns 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.

Umm, where have we heard this before?

    First Gore now Bin laden, what is it with these guys and Bush…….

  2. johnh says:

    He obviously is making a play for the soon to be vacant top slot on the IPCC. As an employee of the UN he will have diplomatic imunity.

    If you support the IPCC, the terrorists win?

    They needed him in Copenhagen last month. Perhaps he can guest edit RC.

  6. Jeff Id says:

    That’s good, the IPCC needs a new spokesperson.

  7. DanB says:

    Global Warming has officially jumped the shark!

    Warmers, when a terrorist mastermind agrees with your views, perhaps its time to reconsider

  10. Nolo Contendere says:

    Support for the AGW hoax from beyond the grave! I’ve seen nothing that would incline me to doubt that Bin Laden has been dead since 2001. But his war against western civilization does have some eerie parallels with the AGW conspirators.

  11. Ron de Haan says:

    Bin Laden is not stupid.
    He has identified AGW policies provide a much more potent tool to harm the US economy than any terrorist attack.

    Yes, Obama and Bin Laden, all good friends now:

  12. vboring says:

    At least he is honest in his prescription to “bring the wheels of the US economy to a halt,” instead of hiding behind unjustifiable optimism about the capabilities of cap and trade and alternative energy sources to reduce CO2 emissions without killing the economy.

  13. MartinGAtkins says:

    He must be feeling the heat.

  14. Henry chance says:

    Does he provide training bootcamps for the Earth Liberation Front division of PETA?

  15. Curiousgeorge says:

    I wonder how much CO2/carbon and other nasty chemicals is emitted by a suicide bomber when he/she pushes the button? Has anyone calculated whether it’s carbon neutral or not? Should they have to buy carbon offsets in order to blow themselves up? After all somebody has to use manufacture all the materials, transport them to the bomb factory, possibly use a fossil fuel vehicle to deliver the bomber and bomb to the target, etc. Has Al Gore explored this potential market for offsets?

  16. Jim Watson says:

    I wonder how much CO2 was put into the air on September 11, 2001.

    OT: Study: Water vapor may help ‘flatten global warming trend’

    http://www.usatoday.com/tech/science/environment/2010-01-29-watervapor29_ST_N.htm

    Why the Earth’s surface temperature hasn’t warmed as expected over the past decade continues to be a puzzle for scientists. One study out earlier this month theorized that the Earth’s climate may be less sensitive to greenhouse gases than currently assumed.

    Another surprising factor could be the amount of water vapor way up in the stratosphere, according to a new study out Thursday in the journal Science.

    So now water vapor doesn’t amplify global warming but dampens it? What happened to all the feedbacks that were supposed to be causing a runaway greenhouse effect?

  26. John Galt says:

    Where do these guys get their talking points… the New York Times?

  27. Yarmy says:

    So he’s finally broken his self-imposed silence on this important issue. Did he also go on to bemoan Arsenal’s lack of financial clout in the transfer market?

  28. Base "F" says:

    [snip - while I realize you may have been using satire, the comment is a bit OTT]

  29. Sean says:

    The guy is right you know. NASA GISS and Michael Mann are responsible for the data sets that created global warming.

  30. Jan Wedekind says:

    For someone, who has spent so much thought on how to damage the US economy, I’m surprised that he has realised this only now.

  31. CodeTech says:

    Hah!

    I can’t call it irony, since OBL and the warmists both share the same goals.

    I can’t call it funny, since OBL and the warmists would both destroy our way of life.

    And yet… and yet… maybe one or two of the passive warmists might figure it out from this. Nah.

  32. Peter Miller says:

    [snip - a bit OTT as base' F's comment was].

  33. Michael Jankowski says:

    Coming soon to a headline near you: “Direct link found between global warming and terrorism.”

  34. John says:

    It was only a matter of time. Those that wish to “expose” and teardown the US supposed malfeasance (environmentalist and statists) have provided the perfect vehicle for those outside the US – Global Warming. Think of this, Bin Laden is now on the same “moral ground” as Mann, Hansen, Gore, et al.

  35. Wondering Aloud says:

    Great post! Both funny and obvious. Why would anyone be surprised that OBL would sign up with a lie ained at hurting the west? Only surprise is he apparently waited until it was certain it was a lie.

  36. boballab says:

    Remember this story a couple weeks back:
    http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2010/01/the_cia_takes_on_global_warmin.html

    The nation’s top scientists and spies are collaborating on an effort to use the federal government’s intelligence assets – including spy satellites and other classified sensors – to assess the hidden complexities of environmental change. They seek insights from natural phenomena like clouds and glaciers, deserts and tropical forests

    Now it makes complete sense. They knew OBL was an Alarmist and where else would you find an alarmist but out checking the melt of glaciers.

  37. amicus curiae says:

    Curious george:-) Funny.
    sorta off topic, but on the American caused issue is this
    something I blogged, minutes ago:-)
    http://agmates.ning.com/forum/topics/its-looking-like-a-race-for
    the link to USA govt paid and approved alaskan warming program???? wtf?

  38. anna v says:

    Well, El Sid himself .

    The probability that bin Laden is alive is minuscule, voice can be easily created by computer. The last video I had seen was obviously a stand in that could only fool westerners who think any swarthy man with a beard is bin Laden. Benazir Buto years and years ago had said he was dead.

    Anyway, of course al Qaeda will be all for cap and trade. Nothing like making your enemy commit hara kiri.

  39. M. Simon says:

    Now when a warmist goes all irrational on me I can come back with “Ah. An ally of Osama. Eh?”

    The wheels are coming off.

    BTW any one notice the parallels between the Lebensraum arguments and the warmist arguments?

    I discuss that and Osama at:

  40. Richard Sharpe says:

    I can only paraphrase the Godwin rule.

    You know AGW is done when bin Laden turns up to support it.

    Stick a fork in it.

  42. JonesII says:

    I always thought it but didn’t dare to say it. He knows that Cap&Trade will destroy the US better and sooner that his Jihad suicides. So, logically, there are a few guys out there sharing goals with Al-Qaida, but who’s the original idea.
    Funny too…think Al “baby” a Jihadist! though I suspect he loves himself too much to commit suicide.☺

  43. JonesII says:

    No joke, with all his money he could lobby for Cap&Trade. LOL!!!!

  44. pat michaels says:

    Actually nothing new here. OBL has sporadically done this climate change riff since 9/11.

  45. wws says:

    Never thought I would see Bin Laden sign on to a new religion! On the other hand, he was never much of a Muslim, what with that murdering all the other muslims is okay bit.

    But wiping out large parts of humanity in order to cleanse the world is one of the basic beliefs of his new religion, so I guess it’s not really surprising he’s found a home there!

  46. MJK says:

    This is gutter talk at best. The guy is a mass murderer. I find it deeply troubling that he be compared to Mann, Hansen, Gore etc… you all should be deeply ashamed of yourselves.

    I was starting to take some of your arguments seriously. you have now completely lost me.

  47. Kath says:

    Will the MSM ignore the association of OBL now has with global warming?

  48. Ray says:

    What’s the difference between AGW and OBL?

    None… they are both dead!

  49. vboring says:

    He must really hate his family – whose wealth comes exclusively from oil exports.

    I wonder where he thinks his funding will come from if those oil reserves become worthless because of the policies he promotes.

  50. Bernice says:

    At least James Hansen can produce a peer reviewed tape that backs up his views.

  51. JJ says:

    “He obviously is making a play for the soon to be vacant top slot on the IPCC. As an employee of the UN he will have diplomatic imunity.”

    Maybe. I think it more likely that he’s angling for a Nobel Peace Prize. Given the recent awards, he has a pretty decent shot at it.

    And you did notice that he released this staement on video, didnt you? The production values arent quite up to Algore’s standard, but there may yet be an Oscar in the wings …

  52. Dodgy Geezer says:

    @Jim Watson

    “I wonder how much CO2 was put into the air on September 11, 2001.”

    Probably much less than usual. The planes would have burnt all their fuel continuing to their destinations anyway, and the grounding of flights would have cut a lot more. I have heard stories that the cleaner air over the US resulted in lower temperatures, so perhaps the IPCC see this as a benefit…?

  53. Tor Hansson says:

    If SPY Magazine had still been around, there would be an immediate Pachauri/Bin Laden “separated at birth” item.

    I think Mr. Bin Laden is making an environmental plea against further use of drones and guided missiles. He is a very unselfish individual, full of love for the planet.

    I think the Pentagon buys carbon offsets for those items, Mr. Bin Laden.

  54. Mitch H. says:

    Sounds like a recruiting appeal to Greenies. It’s worked for the Islamists before, with leftist-fanatics orphaned by the ideological collapse of Communism.

  55. Tim says:

    This from a man who condones the use of an Airplane as a weapon. That’s not very green thinking.

  56. supercritical says:

    This should just about do it for the AWG lobbyists!

    Hey George Monbiot, Al Gore, Jones, Hansen, Gavin, Pachauri & company!

    … how do you like your new colleague !

    CRU, NASA & Al-Quaeda in the same bed ? who is going to let that one go!

  57. Jeff Id says:

    Please shut down your industry which is making bullets to kill us happy innocent muslims.

    Is it ok to complain about global warming when you live in a friggin’ DESERT!!

  58. Richard M says:

    It’s nice to see the destruction of Western economies tied to AGW beliefs. I’ll be mentioning the backing of OBL to the complex climate deniers in the future.

    “OT: Study: Water vapor may help ‘flatten global warming trend’

    http://www.usatoday.com/tech/science/environment/2010-01-29-watervapor29_ST_N.htm

    Also reported here:

    http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/wireStory?id=9689224

    Oh, dear. So let’s see: 2000-2009 claimed to be the hottest decade. Has highest levels of CO2 since humans appeared. But water vapour has decreased. All the climate models assume that water vapour must increase with higher CO2 and temperature (positive feedback). That is why this result is so ‘unexpected’. If you make assumptions about feedback, then the wrong sort of feedbacks sure are ‘unexpected’. So, which is right – the models or reality? (Rhetorical question!)

    I am seeing more and more reports that the magnitude and sign of the feedbacks in the models are hopelessly wrong. Remeber, ALL attributions to anthropogenic factors come from modelling (when the models include positive feedback they can’t track past climate changes without adding the effects of increased CO2). I can see the wheels coming off this bandwagon fairly soon. AGW will soon be a busted flush. Bin Laden’s endorsement will do it no favours.

  64. solrey says:

    Wow, Bin Laden is pretty spunky for a dead guy. Orwell’s Emmanuel Goldstein is a dove compared to the perpetually spooky enemy Osama, the top of the list in “the database” of CIA jihadi assetts… or al qaeda in Arabic.

  65. Daniel H says:

    This just goes to show which side of the global warming debate more closely resembles the “intelligent design” side of evolution. So far we have the Pope, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Evangelical leaders, and numerous other Christian leaders declaring their solidarity with the warmist ideology. Now we have Osama bin Laden firmly in the warmist camp as well. It would appear that the forces of faith are not, in fact, aligned with the science when it comes to the issue of AGW.

    Big surprise, that!

  66. LarryD says:

    Why would anyone be surprised that OBL would sign up with a lie ained at hurting the west? Only surprise is he apparently waited until it was certain it was a lie.

    Yes, he rather waited too long for this tactic, It would be embarrassing enough to have done this just before ClimateGate, this long after the wheels have started to come off just makes him look the fool.

  67. Mike Ramsey says:

    OBL must be concerned about the amount of CO2 that each 2,000 lb paveway bomb releases on impact.

    Bombs away!

  68. nigel jones says:

    It seems a bit late to jump on the AGW bandwagon when the wheels are falling off.

    Nothing about bringing the wheels of the Chinese economy to a halt.

    I wonder who this is supposed to appeal to. Those in Third World countries encouraged to play up over the damage caused to them by climate change and now likely to lose their handout as the scam collapses?

  69. Jimmy Haigh says:

    I look forward to reading OBL’s posts on Real Climate. He’ll be in good company over amongst the other nutters there.

    Hmm – can’t be in the mountains – perhaps OBL is hiding in an urban location!

  71. Lance says:

  72. Mark says:

    No chance this story is true. Bin Laden has been dead for years. IMHO

  73. KDK says:

    If you like fiction, you’re living the dream. As many have said, before, “how can this guy release tapes (not vids anymore since people recognize it isn’t him) and NOT be caught, when we pulled passports from a fiery pit where no plane survived?”… ummm, right?

    BS – 9 11 has its scientific critics in the form of pilots, engineers, firefighters, ex-military, architects and it MUST be investigated using their facts, not the govs ‘adjusted’ data and their theory (it IS a theory).

    OBL is nothing… he is just given the role of our ‘enemy’ as we don’t have them all over the world thanks to imperialism.

  74. P Gosselin says:

    Haigh,

    That was about as deep as his usual rants. The sheer ignorance of these Islamic terrorists never fails to amaze. Speaking of ignorance, i wonder if Obama has any real science advisers or if he is surrounded by crazies to protect him from reality?

  80. Pearland Aggie says:

    Obviously I disagree with Bin Laden, but from a strategic standpoint this is quite brilliant. He sees the democrats as enemies of this country or at least willing pawns and is attempting to use them to advance his position. The mere association between CAGW, Bin Laden and those attempting to foist cap-and-tax on this nation should be shocking. In saner times, that might cause many to rethink their stance…but we don’t live in sane times!

    Why destroy a country yourself when you can get others to do it from within?

  84. Henry chance says:

    I recall Saddam Hussein (No relation to Barry Hussein) was the first eco terrorist. He lit up 600 oilwells in Kuwait after invading Kuwait. Since that oil was NOT burned by an internal combustion engine, it was disregarded as polution.

  85. Benjamin says:

    “In the tape, aired in part on Al-Jazeera television Friday, bin Laden warns 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”

    For all those who fear that jihad is winning… Well, there you go. If it was winning, he wouldn’t say our economy needs to be stopped. Apparently it’s still enough to piss off bin Laden, depressed as it is.

    Anyway, I just heard this story on CBS and I had to laugh. He urged people to not buy American made goods. I haven’t seen any “made in America” labels in many, many years. Kill the nonexistent.

    I guess he’s been in that cave of his for longer than he’s thought to have been!

  86. Ray says:

    This is really THE sign that they are really desperate to pass the Cap & Tax legislation. If ever it was true (zero confidence on my part), then if they wanted to really get under OBL’s skin, they would drop the whole idea of a green economy… take that Osama! OSAMAAAAAAaaaa!

  87. Skeptic Tank says:

    Imagine the expression on the face of that little girl (with the drowning dog, remember?) if it was OBL reading the book about CO2 and Global Warming. That would be scary. LMAO!

  90. Expat in France says:

    You can just picture the headlines…

    “Already the carbon dioxide bombs are being prepared. Thousands of cans of cola and other fizzy drinks are even now being stockpiled in a remote mountain retreat close to the Pakistan border.

    It is thought that “sleeper cells” of undercover “openers” in US major cities will have crates of fizzy drinks despatched to them, and at a given command (probably by mobile phone), the toxic gas will be simultaneously released on the unsuspecting American public…”

  91. P Gosselin says:

    Maybe OBL ought to start his own climate blog:

    Climate Jihad.com
    AllahisGreatClimate.com
    ClimateAllah.com

    AllahTruthClimate.com

  93. cba says:

    Folks,

    This isn’t new. As I recall, it was in the original 10 ??? point diatribe that was released around the 9/11 attack. I remember this because it suggested a possible explanation something I was curious about back then. The muslim oil producing states were gaining massive amounts of the world’s wealth and it didn’t make sense for there to be an outright attack at that time since waiting and biding time would continue to put them in better circumstances unless there was something that would cause the opposite. Running out of petro was not the problem. However, accepting the notion of global warming and the destruction of the planet would provide the impetus to ‘act now’ rather than delay for even better conditions.

    That means that this global warming factor is not just a fundamental reason for OBL’s jihad against the west, but that it might be an even more key effort in the timing of the effort or even a prime reason in the reason for this course of action rather than an ecomonic course of action.

    does that mean algore is actually guilty of inciting terrorism against the west by misleading others who decided to do something about it?

  94. ManBearPig says:

    Increase your emissions or else the terrorists will win!

    The real Osama has been pushing up daisies for years now.

    So what would be the intent of the real author of this tape? It does not sound like support for AGW and AGW taxes – it sounds like Republican disinformation to undermine AGW taxes.

    Just like when ‘Osama’ (the security services?) conveniently put out a tape four days before the 2004 US election, to help Bush win. This ‘Osama’ is being very helpful to someone.

    Not that your point is invalid. But is there any evidence that OBL has directly killed anyone? Isn’t he basically a crackpot leader and fundraiser for terrorist groups who was just very good at his job? I’m perfectly willing to accept that I may be totally wrong here, but from a organizational standpoint, there’s little difference between what the IPCC leaders do, and what OBL does or did on a daily basis (assuming he’s dead). They spout bullcrap to everyone, pimp their organization and goals to those who might fund them, and the end result is potentially chaos and death. Do Jones/Hansen/Pachauri mean to kill anyone? Of course not. Did the people who banned DDT mean to cause the deaths of millions? The road to hell is paved with the best of intentions.

    If he’s alive, produce him. His appearance would be a tremendous morale boost to his followers, and would really fire them up. So why the ‘audio tapes,’ instead of a live appearance on 60 Minutes, or a BBC interview?

  111. Gene L. says:

    This is not a surprise from Bin Laden. Read some of his earliest pronouncements: he’s all about destroying our economy,… any way he can.

    * Get us to spend millions bombing caves in Afganistan,
    * Encourage the rest of the world to make us spend trillions on cap n trade (or cap n tax), plus the various payments to every developing nation on the planet,
    * Offering bizarro threats so we try to lock down every possible gathering place or venue in the nation against terrorism, or
    * Wasting trillions on health care “reform.”

    Makes no difference as long as our economy is wrecked. Heck, OBL would probably love it if the US militia and white supremacy groups would take up arms in fear that the massed UN troops are waiting at the Canadian and Mexican borders, plus coming into our ports on the next arriving cruise ships… And if we do it to ourselves, it would be so much easier for him and probably more enjoyable … from his point of view.

    The question of the hour should be if Pachauri and the IPCC come forth and accept OBL’s endorsement.

    So, after we have had one paper that wants to lower the climate sensitivty number just a couple of days ago, here:

    http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/01/100127134721.htm

    We have another paper that wants to lower it here:

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/jan/29/water-vapour-climate-change

    Apparently the paper was published in Science. But the guardian doesn’t give us a link.

    Some quotes from the Guardian:
    “The research, led by one of the world’s top climate scientists, suggests that almost one-third of the global warming recorded during the 1990s was due to an increase in water vapour in the high atmosphere, not human emissions of greenhouse gases. A subsequent decline in water vapour after 2000 could explain a recent slowdown in global temperature rise, the scientists add.”

    “Satellite measurements were used to show that water vapour levels in the stratosphere have dropped about 10% since 2000. When the scientists fed this change into a climate model, they found it could have reduced, by about 25% over the last decade, the amount of warming expected to be caused by carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.”

    “The scientists also looked at the earlier period, from 1980 to 2000, though cautioned this was based on observations of the atmosphere made by a single weather balloon. They found likely increases in water vapour in the stratosphere, enough to enhance the rate of global warming by about 30% above what would have been expected.”

    Climate sensitivity numbers seem to be dropping as fast as IPCC credibility.

    Ok Al BBC Jazeera is largely a British operation and is full of former BBC staff. The UK media is in turn full of secret services personnel. Bin Laden was a CIA man. He was a very sick man and died in 2001 and it was in the Egyptian and Pakistani newspapers.

    The subsequent videos and tapes are all just very poor hoaxes by the intelligence services. They don’t have to be good quality because they control the media too. Intel centre are the ones that do such videos. They specislise in terrorist videos: Taliban, Al Qaeda, phoney Uighur terrorists (who threatened the Olympics) anything really and any message to suit (global warming no problem). Intelcentre is run by former US army psychological operations and intelligence officers including one who worked directly for Rumsfeld. Here is a link and price list:

  146. Bin Laden is just parrotting the useful idiots in the West including the Obama administration and Democratic leaders who wish to destroy the economy with Cap and Trade, using as an excuse the lie that the US was until recently the biggest contributor to Anthropogenic CO2. The CO2 figure that should be the basis for discussion is the net figure after subtracting CO2 absorbed because of land use practice from emissions, The paper by Fan et al in Science 1998 (p 442)shows that on a net basis North America is a net CO2 sink whereas Europs and Asis put out far more than they absorb. ( Not that anthropogenic CO2 makes much contribution to warming anyway – as recent lack of solar activity increasingly shows.)

    And he’s been on the green train for years. It’s not his own doing, Islam generally has the same totalitarian ambitions for bringing around a fantasy version of prehistory as the green movement does.

    Scientific data and analyses show that there is no significant human caused global warming.

    During the late Ordovician the planet plunged into the Andean/Saharan ice age when the CO2 level was several times the present.

    During the last and previous glaciations, atmospheric CO2 increase often lagged temperature increase by hundreds of years

    Proxy data from ice cores show temperature trend direction changes. Temperature trend direction changes are not possible if NET feedback from average global temperature is positive.

    Average global temperatures for over a century have trended down then up then down then up then down while atmospheric CO2 levels have risen steadily. Lack of correlation proves lack of causation.

    A simple model accurately predicts average global temperatures since 1895 without any need to consider the effects of change to CO2 level or any other ghg. The model, with an eye-opening graph, is presented in the October 16 pdf at http://climaterealists.com/index.php?tid=145&linkbox=true.

  171. phlogiston says:

    The “red-green” environmental and left wing western political body of opinion and political movement, closely linked to AGW, does indeed share with Osama Bin Laden a fundamental antipathy to the Western Industrial and capitalistic economy, society and life-style. This is not a trivial or offensive parallel but a correct and informative observation. Many people in the “West” feel ill at ease with a life style dependent on fossil fuel burning technology and mega scale industry as well as bewildering science. They feel real anxiety just from looking at a column of cars at a red traffic lights pumping exhaust fumes into the atmosphere.

    The psycological roots of this unease with our industrial lifestyle come partly from a very long-established medieval religious mind-set involving self rejection and loathing linked to a pursuit of a sense of moral and spiritual purity. European society was deeply influenced by such thinking for many centuries, and mind-sets thus formed constitute a large part of peoples’ psycology which change only very slowly over many generations, centuries and even millenia. For instance, Francis of Assisi is often thought of as a benevolent and likeable religious mystic, and no doubt said and did good things. However one thing that he said was:

    “St. Francis of Assisi (1181 or 1182–1226) taught, “I have no greater enemy than my body,” arguing that “We should feel hatred towards our body for its vices and sinning!” For St. Francis this attitude entailed fasting and self-flagellation for the disciplining of the body, which he called “brother donkey.””

    http://science.jrank.org/pages/8388/Asceticism-Western-Asceticism-Middle-Ages.html

    The same article continues indicating the pervasiveness, acceptance and popularity of the concept of inflicting punishment, deprivation and even pain on oneself in order to strive against sin and natural appetites and desires that were seen as iniquitous and as ones own enemy.

    Later the article states:

    “Many saints of the late Middle Ages individually practiced similar self-punishments; as a collective practice, self-flagellation was institutionalized in convents such as those of the Dominicans in southern Germany. This ascetic act was practiced collectively by the laity as well, at least since the advent of the many flagellant movements from 1260 to 1348, which were reactions against plague and apocalyptic fears; ..”

    The part that I would highlight (if I know how to) is “flagellant movements … which were reactions against plague and apocalyptic fears”.

    The whole AGW narrative and psycology, Kyoto, Copenhagen, CO2 taxes, cap and trade, emission limits are a modern reappearance of this medieval phenomenon of a flagellant movement in reaction against apocalyptic fears.

    What “natural desires” do people have: to have a job, have a prosperous lifestyle and a decent car. To fly from time to time. To be warm in winter, not too hot in summer. The fulfillment of all these desires necessitates fossil fuel burning: thus we are exhorted to mortify and punish ourselves by abstinence from these sinful objects of desire.

    The Islamic terrorist link with BIn Ladens “supposed” statement illuminates another aspect: the most virulent Islamic hatred of the west is in Muslims who live in the west. The 911 perpetrators, also the London tube bombers, lived for years in the USA and UK. Muslims in the west are in fact inbibing the wetsern asceticism (subconsciously via the western mindset that we all have – whatever our supposed religion or atheism – few of us realise how superficial such beliefs and opinions are to our subconscious cores). Thus British soldiers in Afghanistan listening in to Taliban radio chatter hear thick Birmingham accents, and later inspecting Taliban corpses they routinely find Aston Villa tattoos on the bodies of these religious martyrs.

    You only need to look at anti-government demonstrations in any western capital to see how much institutionalised self loathing exists in the form of loathing of the government of ones own country. Thus patriotism is such a dirty word. Its unacceptable apparently to feel positive about oneself and ones country. Or about our society’s industrial and scientific achievements. We must feel guilt, and punish and deprive ourselves.

    The Ministry of Truth cannot be said to have purged the web of all the “terrorism experts” who claimed that he was dead. Just google it.

    Why should we be ashamed? Mann, Hansen, Gore, Maurice Strong, David Rockefeller and Clinton are responsible for the starvation of third world children thanks to the bio-fuel scam and the ratification of the World Trade Organization not to mention World Bank/IMF SAPs.

    The results of the politics of Carbon trading/Cap and Trade is increased death of the poor especially children. Osama at least is honest enough to state that his goal is to kill people. Maurice Strong, father of Global Warming also state his goal.

    “Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilization collapse?”

    Do you think the collapse or at least the severe crippling of industrialized civilization, that results from Cap and trade, isn’t going to cause the deaths of millions of people? Are you really that naive?

    Look at what happen from the bio-fuel fiasco. Monsanto and Cargill posted record earnings while the third world countries people rioted and starved.

    “”The World Bank says that 100 million more people are facing severe hunger. Yet some of the world’s richest food companies are making record profits. Monsanto last month reported that its net income for the three months up to the end of February this year had more than doubled over the same period in 2007…The Food and Agriculture Organisation reports that 37 developing countries are in urgent need of food. And food riots are breaking out across the globe” http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Monsanto_and_the_World_Food_Crisis

    The whole AGW scenario is about transferring the wealth of the masses into the pockets of the few without getting lynched in the process. And If people die in the process they really do not care, there are always more peasants available to exploit.

    “He must really hate his family – whose wealth comes exclusively from oil exports.

    I wonder where he thinks his funding will come from if those oil reserves become worthless because of the policies he promotes.”

    You forget the Rockefellers, (and Maurice Strong) and the Saudis are in bed together and have been since the 1950′s and before. I have no doubt at all that the result will be MORE money in the pockets of the Rockefellers and the Saudis.

    Check out the Saudi Arms Dealer Adnan Khashoggi and his various connections. It is a real eye opener to the threads connecting the very powerful who control world politics.

    Smokey (10:24:30) : “bin Laden’s dead. Tora Bora, 2001.”

    “Dead, shmed. As any Chicago politician will tell you, death does not necessarily preclude participation in the political process!”

    ROTFLMAO You just found another connection between Osama and Obama…

    So, we can expect a Fatwa on Refutniks now?

    Issued by ……. Obama?

    [i]
    “Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden …., blaming the United States and other industrialized countries for global warming.

    ………, bin Laden warns 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.
    [/i]

    If this is now official Al-Qaida policy, what does that make the IPCC ?

    So why surprised at Bin Laden?

    Bin Laden is no more, he has ceased to be. How can a dead man have an opinion on anything, let alone the climate?

    Two probable dates for his demise;

    14th December 2001

    You don’t suppose he was the ghost writer from Madame Pacauri’s new book?

    P.s., based on the lies those sites tell about Israel, it would be no surprise to me to discover they were no more credible on anything else, a lot like the crew at CRU have been on climate. I.e., if I know they are lying about one thing, I don’t trust them on anything else.
