Bin Laden Goes Green

It must get a little boring sitting up in the mountains on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border between meetings to plan the destruction of the Western world.

“Osama bin Laden, the leader of Al Qaeda, blamed the United States and developed countries for not halting climate change and said that the global economy should immediately abandon its reliance on the American dollar, according to an audiotape released Friday by the broadcaster Al Jazeera.

“’Talk about climate change is not an ideological luxury but a reality,’ Mr. bin Laden was quoted as saying in a report on Al Jazeera’s English-language Web site. ‘All of the industrialized countries, especially the big ones, bear responsibility for the global warming crisis.'" (not The Onion)

Monetary policy and global warming. Ben Bernanke and Al Gore must be nervously looking over their shoulders. There’s a new pundit in town.
