So I have to assume that they are for it then, since the Arab Spring is a good thing. Why if the temperatures keep going up, maybe there will be an Arab Spring every spring.
Or alternatively, since the Center for American Progress’s own politics played a large role in getting the United States to pull its support for allied Arab governments with disastrous results, this may be CAP’s convoluted way of claiming that the Arab Spring had nothing to do with them. It was just a natural phenomenon caused by rising temperatures.
Forget Islam. There’s no Jihads to see here. Morsi is shooting protesters because of Global Warming. The protesters are protesting because of Global Warming. Obama is shipping jet planes and tanks to Morsi because of Global Warming.
It’s Global Warming all the way down. Global Warming created the world. It created man. And now it’s creating war, famine, pestilence and celebrity advocacy.
Please join the Center for American Progress, the Center for Climate & Security, and the Stimson Center on Thursday, February 28, for the release of a new volume on “Climate Change and the Arab Spring.” Panelists Tom Friedman, Anne-Marie Slaughter, and Michael Werz will parse out these complex interactions and discuss the implications for U.S. foreign and development policy.
I think we all look forward to Tom Friedman discussing the flattening globalizing effect of Global Warming on the flat earth.
