First, I'd like to thank David and Reid for brilliantly guest-blogging in my absence. Great job guys! Now on to liberal ridiculing...
Just when we got rid of Kofi Annan, the most corrupt UN leader in the sordid history of that embarassing collection of degenerates and despots, we get Ban Ki-moon, who turns out to be an global warming zealot...
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said that the slaughter in Darfur was triggered by global climate change and that more such conflicts may be on the horizon, in an article published Saturday.
"The Darfur conflict began as an ecological crisis, arising at least in part from climate change," Ban said in a Washington Post opinion column.
UN statistics showed that rainfall declined some 40 percent over the past two decades, he said, as a rise in Indian Ocean temperatures disrupted monsoons.
"This suggests that the drying of sub-Saharan Africa derives, to some degree, from man-made global warming," the South Korean diplomat wrote
In case you haven't figured it out yet, global warming hysteria is a thin veil for an attempt to tax the great wealth of the U.S. The U.N. wants nothing more than to sink it's tentacles into the powerful U.S. economy. With the help of the useful idiots in the democratic party, the blame for anything bad that happens in the world will increasingly be blamed on imaginary global warming, and since the U.S. is the biggest producer of CO2, it will be taxed as a form of punishment...by whom else? Why the all powerful U.N. of course.
If you want to see money seized from the U.S. economy in the form of U.N. taxes, then vote for a democrat in '08.
