Osama bin Laden, the al-Qaeda leader, has condemned the US and other industrial economies, holding them responsible for the phenomenon of climate change.
In an audio tape obtained by Al Jazeera, bin Laden criticised George Bush, the former US president, for rejecting the Kyoto pact and condemned global corporations.
"This is a message to the whole world about those responsible for climate change and its repercussions – whether intentionally or unintentionally - and about the action we must take," bin Laden said.
"Speaking about climate change is not a matter of intellectual luxury - the phenomenon is an actual fact."
The reaction will be predictable: Bin Laden is bad. He believes in, and condemns, climate change. Lefties believe in, and condemn, climate change. Therefore, lefties and Bin Laden are birds of a feather. Cue stupid conservative reaction…. 3…. 2…… 1……. ding ding ding… we have a winner!
