Reuters reports that the terrorist Osama Bin Laden intended to use the climate issue to spread chaos in the United States, by calling for people concerned about greenhouse gasses to rise up and overthrow the government.
According to Reuters;
Osama bin Laden wrote a letter calling on the American people to help President Barack Obama fight “catastrophic” climate change and “save humanity”, in the latest evidence of his worries about environmental issues, newly released documents show
The letter was among materials that were seized in the May 2, 2011, U.S. raid on bin Laden’s hideout in Pakistan that killed the al Qaeda chief and which were released on Tuesday by the Obama administration.
The undated, unsigned letter “to the American people,” which U.S. intelligence officials attributed to bin Laden, appeared to have been written shortly after Obama began his first term in 2009, based on the letter’s references to events.
Bin Laden’s preoccupation with climate change also emerged as a theme in the first tranche of documents from the raid that was declassified in May 2015, as well as in an audio recording released via the al Jazeera network in January 2010.
Thankfully Bin Laden was assassinated on the orders of President Obama, before he could fully implement his plan. But this news confirms a previous report on WUWT, about Bin Laden’s effort to invite climate extremists to join his anti-Western Jihad.
The danger didn’t end with Bin Laden’s death. The climate issue still seems to resonate strongly in some hardline Islamic communities; a false narrative of impending destruction brought on by Western greed and consumerism, unsurprisingly finds eager acceptance, amongst people who already hate the liberty and wealth of the West.
Some leaders in the Arabic world have even attempted to use the climate issue to deflect blame for their own maladministration, a trend which is already well established in the West. If this political ruse gains wider acceptance, it will further fan the flames of hatred.
Future historians may come to cite the early 21st century climate hysteria as a prime example of unintended consequences. The Western climate fad, which for a time was a useful political prop, is in danger of mutating into a tool to incite the desperate into acts of hatred and mass murder. Who amongst the foot soldiers will dispute the veracity of the coming climate Jihad? The architects of hatred have access to plenty of video footage, of Western politicians accepting complicity for a problem which doesn’t exist, then breaking all their promises, of action to curb CO2 emissions.
