Osama Bin Laden Lectures Obama on Climate Change

“Speaking about climate change is not a matter of intellectual luxury — the phenomenon is an actual fact. All of the industrialized countries, especially the big ones, bear responsibility for the global warming crisis.”

Guess who said this. Nope, it’s not James Hansen or Rajandra Pachauri. It’s none other than Osama bin Laden. In new audio obtained by Al Jazeera, which has yet to be confirmed as authentic, bin Laden railed against the United States and other major economies for not acting to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The comments come just days before the start of U.N. climate talks in Tianjin, China and a month before major negotiations in Cancun, Mexico. Negotiators are not expected to agree to a binding treaty at the meetings.

As the Guardian notes, Republicans are already pouncing on the comments:

The utterance immediately got star billing on the right-wing blog Drudge Report as well as a mention on Fox News – both repositories of opposition to action on global warming. And the Conservative RedState website asked, “What is the difference between Bin Laden and Al Gore?”

You know, you media people keep conjuring up Bin Laden without showing the fact that this man is trully alive. You feed on the frenzy of people's fears with this War On Terror. It is amazing that this Great Blessed Nation was established by The Hand of God and a handful of common people (Rebels from England, Indentured Servants, Slaves, Native Indians, etc.), who defeated The Greatest Empire of The World of the late 1700s; and those of us, who greatly benefitted from their bravery are so and have come to such great advancements; far beyond what they had in their day. These twenty four hour news craze have become nothing but a bunch of babbling gossip for the purpose of getting ratings. These politicians of today are also just a bunch of crazed wannabes, who are counting the natural nature of the human being that don't base their judgment on fact, but on the dark unknowing mysteries of their far reaching minds. As I listen to such media voices as Chris Matthews, Wolf Blitzer, Rick Sanchez, Tony Brown, Kyra Philips, and so many others, it is amazing to me how they manipulate the minds of the masses. When I observe local news media and see its amature portrayal of The News and see such a difference in comparison of the Mega News Companies; it is ridiculous to see such a scam of what is passed off to people. Every aspect (corner) of our society is being manipulated for the gain of money for those who want to control The World. To even watch The Church (The House of God) being overtaken by the desire of the gain of money and clergeys misguiding The Body of Jesus Christ for their own advancements; they are perverting the mind of God's Property… Reverend Ira L. Lewis iradject@yahoo.com 512 443-1079. Thank You.

I suppose this just goes to show the ignorance of most Americans that someone like Bin Laden has to lecture them!

Oh, come on ! Al Gore is nothing like Osama Bin Laden. Al Gore is a politician. Also, I think Mr. Gore has tried to bring some good to the USA with the film “An Inconvenient Truth.” Osama is a propagandist, an infiltrationist for nothing but blood thirsty Jihad, and an the epitome of a poor excuse for a human being.

I mean, Osama Bin Laden doesn't even deserve to be called an animal. He is totally deranged.

Does anyone else think it is ironic that someone from the church is complaining about “manipulating the minds of the masses” and wanting to control the world…?

The comments come just days before the start of U.N. climate talks in Tianjin, China and a month before major negotiations in Cancun, Mexico.

The comments came in January 2010.

Who's Bin Lyin' now?
