In the twisted mind of Osama bin Laden, the United States and Israel are typically pointed out as the main causes of world ills. But would you believe the master terrorist now has a new villain to add to that list? Yes, believe it or not, bin Laden recently weighed in on the global warming issue, and in a video message featuring images of natural disasters he stated that “climate change is causing catastrophes throughout the Islamic world.” Bin Laden also pointed to the flooding in Pakistan as evidence of climate change, and further stated that, in his opinion, the victims of global warming are greater than the victims of war. These are no doubt strange concerns coming from a man whose terrorism was helped financed by energy revenues.
