Prof. Says Global Warming to Blame for ISIS

tempA professor is blaming climate change and overpopulation for the creation of the terrorist group ISIS.  Charles Strozier, Professor of History and the founding Director of the John Jay College Center on Terrorism and Kelly Berkell, research assistant at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, wrote a blog piece in the Huffington Post called “ How Climate Change Helped ISIS,” where they argue that a four-year drought in Syria, from 2006 through 2010, “devastated the livelihoods of 800,000 farmers and herders; and knocked two to three million people into extreme poverty.”

    The climate constantly changes. Where is the evidence that humans caused it? There is none.

      What else caused it?

        I’m not sure if I should get angry at you, or feel sorry for you. I just don’t know anyone who is as clueless as you appear to be. What else caused it? Are you talking about the climate or ISIS?

        If the climate, we didn’t cause anything to happen. There has been no warming for 18 years and NASA has just released a study that says there is no warming in the oceans. So that blows any and all theories that humans have influenced the climate. The climate just is. We have no control of that.

        If ISIS, that is all political/socioeconomic/religious causes. The climate has zero to do with it. And even if the climate had anything to do with it, that would fall under the socioeconomic category because it is clear that humans have no influence on the climate.

          Well, 2010 was the warmest year ever, so it has warmed.

          But as you might know, I don’t cherry pick and wasn’t talking about the last 18 years, but lets say for the last 100 years. What caused the warming of that?

    Hey Feister, this professor is a history professor, not a climate scientist! If you are going to be consistent you should reject this story too.

        Is that a statement or a question? A lack of punctuation can be very confusing.

    you guys make me sick global warming is real and you are all delusional idiots!

      Hey, have you done any research at all? Practically every prediction in the last 30 years was a flop!
      What is your evidence that “global warming is real”? Because if you haven’t noticed there has been no warming for the last 18 years despite rising levels of CO2. What’s making you sick are the lies you readily accept as true, and the cognitive dissonance that occurs from exposure to the truth, which you obviously can not accept.

    Hey, you do realize that I can see the ip address of your computer, right? So, if you could just stick to one identity that would be great! So far, Kool Kid, cat man, Kool Cod, and swagswag69 all come from the same computer and were each posted 1 minute apart from each other. So what’s the game? Trying to make it look like more people are commenting than just one person? A manufactured consensus? Gee, where would you get the idea to do that? That’s pretty lame. Though not unexpected, nor unprecedented by the Left. Stick to one name, lame.
