CFACT’s Marc Morano appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox to refute the claim by CBS News that climate change fueled the rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan.

CBS reported: “Rural Afghanistan has been rocked by climate change. The past three decades have brought floods and drought that have destroyed crops and left people hungry. And the Taliban — likely without knowing climate change was the cause — has taken advantage of that pain.” … “The Taliban has capitalized on the agricultural stress and distrust in government to recruit supporters. Alam said the group has the means to pay fighters more, $5-$10 per day, than what they can make farming.”

Morano said that the media has a “long history” of using climate change to defend Democrats.
