Former Vice President and Nobel Laureate Al Gore found an unlikely ally in his mission to save the world from the ravages of global warming – Osama bin Laden. In a new audiotape released by Al Jazeera, the terrorist warns that it is industrialized nations that are to blame and urged “drastic solutions" to solve the climate change crisis.
Bin Laden echoes many who believe the manmade climate change theory saying, "Speaking about climate change is not a matter of intellectual luxury - the phenomenon is an actual fact." The comments are akin to the oft-repeated ‘the science is settled’ argument.
It is the industrialized world and of course primarily the United States that is to blame for global warming. “All industrial nations, mainly the big ones, are responsible for the crisis of global warming," he says on the tape.
According to bin Laden, it is the rejection of the Kyoto Protocol by the United States that has caused global warming to impact the world. He said, "Bush the son, and the [US] Congress before him, rejected this agreement only to satisfy the big companies." [More]

Birds of a Feather?
Bin Laden's rhetoric is indistinguishable from Al Gore's and global warming alarmists of his ilk. Watch them scramble to set themselves apart from the Big Daddy of Terrorism.
Parenthetically, notice that bin Laden also does a "blame Bush" routine, which echoes Barack Obama's mantra whenever his ongoing failures and blatant inadequacies become evident.
