A great unanswered question about global warming’s one weird trick
by Personal Liberty News Desk
Global warming, whose mythic ability to cause all kinds of side effects grows more legendary by the day, is blamed for everything from acne to shark attacks to farmers killing themselves in Australia.
So it’s no surprise that global warming is frequently cited as a driving force behind global terrorism. But conservative blogger Erick Erickson poses a complicating question this week at his website: “Why does global warming only turn Muslims into terrorists?”
Why indeed? We’re sure there’s a scientific explanation, but Erickson leaves that for the scientists to unearth. He’s just playing the role of an innocent savant who doesn’t understand his own discovery:
Global warming is the cause of terrorism in the Middle East and around the world according to Martin O’Malley, Bernie Sanders, Barack Obama, and other Democrats. Let’s add in the Prince of Wales. With a straight face they make this claim, ignoring any and all other evidence to the contrary.
But if that is so, if global warming causes terrorism, then I think the Democrats need to answer this question: why does global warming only turn Muslims into terrorists?
A great question. “Why is the sky blue?” must already have been taken.
“There are Jews in the Middle East and Africa,” Erickson continues. “There are Christians in the Middle East and Africa. There are animists, Zoroastrians, Hindus, and others. But only certain Muslims, often from wealthy families, turn into terrorists. The Jews, Christians, animists, Zoroastrians, Hindus, and the rest never seem to be affected by global warming in that way.”
Erickson’s got no answers, but he suggests that Democrats, while they’re still in control of the federal government, start spending some of their frivolous-study money to get to the bottom of the riddle.
If anybody comes up with the answer, we’ll let you know … in the name of science.
