This makes me wonder if the bin Laden is now and always has been funded by the Republican party. Bin Laden speaking against global warming will have the obvious effect of making Americans deny it exists even as a natural occurrence.

No wonder Bush sort of "forgot about" bin. He had more work to do for him.

Most of what he says is correct and no, I do not support OBL.

Ever notice how much bin Laden has in common with liberals?

Didn't Obama say in his SOTU speech that we would have a green energy policy? bin Laden is probably just upset because he was on the short list for this administration's Green Jobs Czar job but wasn't given it.

Bingo! Another great post, mon ami. I,too, have often felt that the republican party supports Osama bin Laden or at least the Al Qaeda Group.And other posters here don't need to ask why, or for proof,dammit.It's just thhe way I roll!!!

it's just too funny watching the climate change deniers try and deny that they deny that the climate IS changing, and that it ALWAYS has. Fools!

Oh, and before the romeo ramens and the sarges of this world try and say Osama contributes to the global warming they need to get some facts straight - the World Trade Centers and the planes that exploded on 9-11 made the tiniest blip in the measure of OVERALL global warming;I for one am certain the barbecues bushie boy holds in texas, which I hate, are FAR more harmful to this earth.

Oh and here is another thing to thhink about. Today's New York Times,even though they are corporate shills, recognize that Osama bin Laden IS onto something:

"And he offered a word of praise for Noam Chomsky, the American linguist and liberal political activist.

“Noam Chomsky was correct when he compared the U.S. policies to those of the Mafia,” Al Jazeera quoted Mr. bin Laden as saying."

Clearly, US policies are part of the problem of global warming.And it is more clearer than ever that Osama and Noam, and not bush and cheney, are the ones who will help us out of the horrible, horrible place we find ourselves in.

It is important to make the distinction between "what I wonder" and what I declare as fact though. But it would be crazy to not see how this plays into Republican agenda. But since I cannot prove anything, I think it best to just IGNORE WHAT BIN LADEN HAS TO SAY. Just like the Devil himself, he does not clearly lie or tell the truth. Its that everything he says is simply designed to confound you and get you doing the wrong thing.

Well, my friend, this is one time when you WON'T get a bingo! or a yahtze! from me. You post an opinion, and then you recant what you say.I just can't believe that! If one of your students,even one in an intermediate conversation class did such a thing, would you let it pass without a comment? No!You wouldn't.

I suppose next you are going to tell me to do the truly impossible and just ignore WHAT NOAM CHOMSKY HAS TO SAY ????!!!!

OBL has turned to radio, now that his TV career is dead. Goodnight funny man.

Gombei424Canada, sometimes I wonder whose side you are on. To even think of comparing Noam Chomsky with Osama bin Laden is either a serious error in judgement or evidence that you bat for the other team.

Obama is a poor spokesperson who, by his actions more than his mouth, will destroy any good or true message and make people run the wrong direction.

Sushi - Most of what he says is correct and no, I do not support OBL.

Ah but you do support junk science. Thats pretty much all that need be said about this, though the responses on this thread are amusing. OBL comes out for global warming, and of course all the wingers here naturally accuse him of being a shill for the Republicans. He followed the dems talking points, and he's still a shill for the Republicans. Republicans can't catch a break with the left wing fringe. If he comes out against it, he supports the Reps, if he is in favor, he's working for them.

I think somebody wrote this essay and asked OBL to read it for few million$ !

Next he'll be telling us that he has given up the limo, and now takes the train to work.

This latest announcement sounds like he fancies himself with a political role, such as as 'Secretary for the Environment' etc., in the new joint Afghanistan government.

But he never came out against it!

Maybe you can just start by telling us how Democrats ever benefitted from anything he ever did or said? Who benefits from this statement?

"bin Laden said in the audiotape"

Was it really bin Laden's voice on the audiotape? And if it was, he's an idiot.

Bin Laden is dead, and has been dead for years. These weird, unprofessional tapes, audio and video, prove it. Just ignore the lunacy.

The fool on the hill in a cave is trying to tell the gullible student type radicals that they and he are really on the same side and they poor idiots posing in their Palestinian scarf’s will believe him. Though I have to agree with Sarge (a rare thing I know) we never really know if the tapes are OBL or…….?

Umm, OBL? Isn't his statements always designed to benefit himself, or at least his movement. I don't think he cares which party is in power, except that with the Dems in there, Americas response will likely be weaker, at least thats been the pattern of Dem presidents so far, and its certainly held true for Obama.

So Bin Laden doesn't have any religious agenda? Ok so he uses those idiots against the US because he is just a spoiled child that hates the US and now he's trying to use the Liberal crowd against it too. And look at those lined up to repeat idiotic rhetoric:

[This makes me wonder if the bin Laden is now and always has been funded by the Republican party.] Yeah they must be trying to destroy their own country. Or do you have a bigger conspiracy that you uncovered?

[Most of what he says is correct and no, I do not support OBL.] But you seem to agree with what he says. You are falling for his BS line too or he's just using your old ones to gain support.

OBL I think you caught something from one of your sheep in your cave. Better get to a doctor before these delusions make you look even more a farce.

I didn't read the story or any of the comments but I am certain there are people who have already posted that if bin laden believes in climate change, then obviously climate change is a hoax.

I'm wagering sargie will fall into that category.

I guess Obama ... sorry Osama, got the global jihadis all worked up and convinced them to attack the USA and now he's trying to get the global liberals all worked up to do the same. Who will he target as his proxies next?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Binny had already recruited the idiot jihadis to do his dirty work against the USA so now he's going for the global liberals to attack the USA now as well. He knows that they can find a US conspiracy in everything so will eat up his rhetoric about the USA causing global warming. Binny you are becoming a real piece of work.

Maybe you should read the article then. you may just lose your bet. I guess the level of care on this thread is a tad low today.

the only way to prevent disaster was to break the American economy, calling on the world to boycott U.S. goods and stop using the dollar.

Wait a moment, are these the original ideas of the great freedom fighter Osama or is he just taking cues from Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro and that beady eyed, scraggly bearded dictator in Iran??? I can swear I have heard this mantra before, down with the USA, down with SUVS, hmmm...maybe it was Al Gore??

Thats obviously not true. If he believes the sky is blue, it doesn't mean its green. However I do question anyone who still believes in the viability of the AGW theory after all the revelations that have come out about the lies and dishonesty of its promoters. Deliberately ignoring evidence that undercuts their position. What they've been doing is not science. Its religion wearing a false cloak.

Aren't the oil producing countries responsible for providing the polutants? OBL should cut it from the source.

You mean like ignoring all the scientific stuff I have posted on the subject.

It IS like a cult.
