Next week, the world’s leaders will converge on Paris to discuss whether humanity is burning up the ozone layer and how best to address the problem (hint: the solution will probably include a plea for more governmental authority in monitoring and controlling humanity’s energy consumption and, probably, taxes). And, thankfully, according to our fearless leader who has been completely absent from the world stage following the Paris terror attacks, such a gathering will not only end our global reliance on fossil fuels, but it will also demonstrate to a homicidal Islamic apocalypse cult that we are a strong, global presence committed to the issues that truly matter.
All we know is that President Obama is 100% convinced that our best offense against terrorism is a Climate Change conference.
There is some aspect of this that’s true: the terrorists just hit Paris in such a way as to make them a continued threat, and world leaders are still gathering in the French capital, regardless (though, probably, with more firepower protecting them at mealtimes than most third world countries have in their arsenal). That’s a real message — and for the US, an improvement over how President Obama felt in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks, when he and John Kerry skipped out on a peace rally that featured a cadre of world leaders.
But we can also be assured that President Obama considers the Climate Conference as a particularly important gathering in response to global terror. The White House has said a number of times that “climate change” is a greater threat to humanity than maniacal terrorists loose in European countries, and many front-line Democrats consider “climate change” to be a significant factor in the rise of terrorism itself, despite a wealth of evidence to the contrary. Noted Middle Eastern history scholar Prince Charles spouted off this week that the Syrian War is the result of “climate change,” Bernie Sanders has made it a hallmark of his foreign policy and even Obama himself has claimed that “climate change” was instrumental in creating the early unrest that eventually became the Syrian civil war, not the endless parade of radical despots and backwards ideology. He even told the Coast Guard that, one day, their primary focus will be saving “climate change” refugees, forced to leave waterlogged lands when the ice caps melt.
If only Barack Obama and other world leaders will stand tall against the natural cycles of heating and cooling inherent in living on a planet that circles a flaming orb of gas, it will no doubt demonstrate to those terrorists that we truly care about where they come from and why they’re so irked. We will solve it together, ISIS, if only you would realize that your fanatical ideology is not based on a radical interpretation of a major world religion, but rather is the natural consequence of being hot and hangry. I’m absolutely certain that will stop them in their tracks, force them to put down their suicide bombs and pick up a couple of windmills.
It’s too bad that the terrorists probably won’t share Obama’s assessment.
