Leave it to Team Climate to exploit the crisis in Afghanistan and get everything wrong.

Marc Morano featured on Climate Depot a bizarre headline from Newsweek which implied that the Taliban might not be so bad after all.  This is because, apparently, the Taliban wants to curry good will with the world community by fighting climate change!  Pay no attention to the bombings, beatings and beheadings!

Newsweek quotes Taliban official Abdul Qahar Balkhi saying, “‘We believe the world has a unique opportunity of rapprochement and coming together to tackle the challenges not only facing us but the entire humanity,’ Balkhi added, ‘and these challenges ranging from world security and climate change need the collective efforts of all.’”

So there you have it … the Taliban are really just a bunch of conscientious woke liberals. Unbelievable.

We also posted another typically hard-hitting column from Joanne Nova who mockingly asks us to “wake up to the new reality that solar panels can stop the Taliban.” Be sure to check it out.

A suicide bomber just detonated a bomb at the Kabul airport.  There are multiple explosions and gunfire.  That’s what the reality of evil extremism looks like.  This has ZERO to do with climate.

Let’s hope President Biden’s mind-boggling bungling of the situation in Afghanistan, coupled with the horrific acts by evil extremists in that troubled land, rip the blinders off all of us and focuses us on what real tragedy looks like and how to fight it going forward.
