Bin Laden on Global Warming and Bailouts

From the Telegraph in the UK:

"Apparently speaking in his second audio broadcast of the month, Bin Laden criticised George W. Bush, the former US president, for not signing the Kyoto Protocol on regulating carbon emissions, and spoke out against excessive corporate influence in the United States."

"He also presented himself as an opponent of government bail outs to western banks, whose speculation and unfair competition practices, he claimed, were largely to blame for the global financial crisis."

"Discussing climate change is not an intellectual luxury, but a reality," he said. "All of the industrialised countries, especially the big ones, bear responsibility for the global warming crisis."

I guess since he lives in a cave he hasn't heard about "Climategate" wherein "Scientists" massaged, omitted and manufactured data to "prove" their little pet theory, with the main huckster, Phil Jones, facing up to ten years on fraud charges. Not long enough in my humble opinion.

I do agree with him on the bailouts though. We part ways on as to the cause of the bubble and the related problems. He seems to think it was "risk taking" and "unfair competition" whereas I believe it was driven by monetary policy. Oh well! Can't win em all.
