Check the Link. It's True.

Global warming could drive its victims to terrorism, according to security experts, says a report from Reuters.

John Mitchell, chief scientist at Britain's Met Office, noted al Qaeda had already listed environmental damage among its litany of grievances against the United States.

"You have destroyed nature with your industrial waste and gases more than any other nation in history. Despite this, you refuse to sign the Kyoto agreement so that you can secure the profit of your greedy companies and industries," al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden wrote in a 2002 "letter to the American people."

I hope it's not irrelevant to point out that Bin Laden is from Saudi Arabia.

Global Warming is driving me insane.
Luckily, John Edwards promises that Embryonic Stem Cells will cure Global Warming.

Does this mean that whatever drives a man to commit murder -- voices, aliens -- must be, ipso facto, true?

Once again, we witness a clueless Westerner snookered by someone -- anyone -- willing to parrot his political talking points.

This reminds me of bin Laden's infamous "Letter to America" where he trotted out every alleged American sin since at least the atomic bombings in Japan as justification for his jihad. It's nice to see I'm not the only one here who knows pretext when he sees it.

Polar ice caps shrinking on Mars also...well at least since we have been able to measure them. Our damn gases must be way more than "Global". Hell this warming is Solar System or Milky Way or perhaps even Universe wide. Do it NOW STOP Universe warming!!!
We Humans are the bomb

"More Destructive than Nuclear Weapons."
- Hans Blix

Again, Hans Blix is Right and Bush is Wrong

President Bush may go down in history as one of the most clueless leaders to have ever occupied the White House. He got the intelligence wrong on Iraq and now New Orleans.

Despite the evidence presented by UN inspector Hans Blix and others, Bush insisted Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and warranted a preemptive attack.

Then, last week, he made the astonishing statement that "I don't think anyone anticipated a breach in the levees." As Lousiana Senator Mary Landrieu pointed out, even the clay cartoon figure "Mr. Bill" had warned in public service announcements before Katrina that the levees wouldn't hold in the face of a strong hurricane. "Mr. Bill was better informed than Mr. Bush" she concluded.

Since leaving the UN, Hans Blix has been arguing that global warming is a far liklier threat to humanity than weapons of mass destruction. By most accounts, the increased number of hurricanes in the Atlantic and the Gulf is part of a natural cycle, but the intensity of the storms is a one of the consequences of global warming.

The devastation of an entire city suggests that perhaps we should listen to Mr. Blix once again. We need a strategy to preempt global warming.

(Hans hadn't heard about stem cells, yet)
Took the ever compassionate Genius Edwards to figure that one out.
Thank goodness we have John.

(gonna miss JFK2, however)
