Excerpt: Imam Ibrahim Saidy brought his symposiums and his monthly fasting to the Paris climate talks, hoping to call attention to the problems and injustice of global warming.
He calls it “green jihad.”
The Muslim cleric from Norway came up with the idea of an environmental holy movement a year ago. He uses the word jihad in its meaning of a struggle to do good, as opposed to extremists’ use of it to signify a holy war.
“The green jihad is to protect and save lives,” Saidy told The Associated Press on Tuesday. “To make people aware of the dangers of climate change and fight for climate justice.”
Saidy is part of a growing interfaith religious movement seeking action by governments to fight global warming. For the past two years, about 10,000 religious activists have been fasting on the first day of the month to call attention to global warming, according to Caroline Bader of the Lutheran World Federation.
‘The real threat to national security will be damage done by those claiming climate change is a threat’

Climate doom progenitors and their fallacies
By Scott Wheeler
The Obama Administration has recently taken to making fantastical claims about global warming–or its latest catchphrase, climate change–and calling it a national security crisis. It seems the more time that passes without the catastrophic doom that has been promised since the ice age scare of the 1970s failed to materialize, the more dire the warnings become.
Last May, President Obama announced to graduating cadets at the Coast Guard Academy:
“So, I am here today to say that climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security.”
Immediate risk? In what way? The president doesn’t say, but his administration seems to have gotten the message.
Recently, CIA director John O. Brennan delivered a speech to a group of national security contractors in which he linked climate change to most major global problems:
“Ongoing conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Ukraine, Yemen, Libya, and parts of Africa are clear examples. The human toll is reflected in the UN’s recent announcement that the number of refugees and internally displaced persons in the world is the highest it has been since World War II. And of course, all this localized strife gives rise to the persistent threat of international terrorism.
When CIA analysts look for deeper causes of this rising instability, they find nationalistic, sectarian, and technological factors that are eroding the structure of the international system. They also see socioeconomic trends, the impact of climate change, and other elements that are cause for concern.”
Notice how cleverly Brennan uses his words. He claimed that CIA analysts looking for deeper causes of instability see “the impact of climate change”. He uses the words “climate change”, because of course something like a flood will displace people and cause refugees, but that happens in any temperature. That is the normal cycles of a changing climate, not global warming. But then Brennan added this:
“Last year was the warmest on record, and this year is on track to be even warmer.”
To be clear, whether or not 2014 was hundredths or one-tenth of one-degree warmer than any other year is in question, but even assuming it was, how could that one-tenth of a degree or less have affected the events Brennan named? The wars in Syria and Libya started before 2014, not to mention the fact that none …

“There is a water shortage in Syria, this is fact based—small and medium farmers have abandoned their farms because there’s not enough water, not enough rainfall. And especially the young people who have not grown up there, have not had their whole lives invested in living off the land, the young people have gone to the big cities looking for work.”
“There’s not enough work for everybody, so the disaffected youths, as we say—the young people who don’t believe in the system, believe the system has failed, don’t believe in the economy—are more easily engaged and more easily recruited by terrorist organizations, and then they end up part way around the world in Paris shooting people,” Nye said.
“You can make a very reasonable argument that climate change is not that indirectly related to terrorism. It’s related to terrorism,” said Nye. “So this is just the start of things. The more we let this go on, the more trouble there’s going to be. You can say, ‘We’ll stamp out the terrorists,’ but everybody’s leaving their farms because of water shortages, that’s a little, bigger problem.”…
