Global warmists say "climate change" created ISIS

Drought drove them to behead people

Drought drove them to behead people!

First, President Ebola insists that those beheaders of ISIL/ISIS, aka the Islamic State caliphate that’s wreaking destruction across the Middle East, are neither Islamic nor jihadist. (See “Obama announces U.S. ‘counterterrorism’ policy against ISIL“)
Now, a pair of academics at the City University of New York (CUNY) are blaming what used to be called global warming, now “climate change,” and overpopulation for the creation of those poor ISIS folk who are just trying to survive amidst parched lands.
In an article for the Huffington Post, How Climate Change Helped ISIS,” history professor Charles Strozier and research associate Kelly Berkell at CUNY’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice, write that “As the Obama administration undertakes a highly public, multilateral campaign to degrade and destroy the militant jihadists known as ISIS, ISIL and the Islamic State, many in the West remain unaware that climate played a significant role in the rise of Syria’s extremists.”
“Many became climate refugees” from a four-year (2006-2010) drought in Syria that “devastated the livelihoods of 800,000 farmers and herders; and knocked two to three million people into extreme poverty.”
Strozier and Berkell continue: “While ISIS threatens brutal violence against all who dissent from its harsh ideology, climate change menaces communities (less maliciously) with increasingly extreme weather.”
The two academics call on Americans to consider the link between melting glaciers and a stronger Taliban: “If more Americans knew how glacial melt contributes to catastrophic weather in Afghanistan—potentially strengthening the Taliban and imperiling Afghan girls who want to attend school—would we drive more hybrids and use millions fewer plastic bags? How would elections and legislation be influenced?”

Neither Strozier nor Berkell is even remotely trained in climate or political science.
In addition to being a history professor, Charles Strozier, Ph.D. is a practicing psychotherapist in New York City’s Greenwich Village. He describes himself as “gay friendly.”
For her part, aside from being a “research associate” at John Jay College of Criminal Justice’s Center on Terrorism, Kelly A. Berkell is an attorney who had practiced securities and corporate litigation in Manhattan and Boston before moving into the public sector.

  1. The depths of stupidity are bottomless…..

  2. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this interesting post. Dear God, what a stretch that completely defies logic and facts! Amazing!

  3. Well Colin Powell graduated from CUNY so what would one expect.
    Is gay friendly Strozier going to the Halloween parade in the Village on
    Friday? Will he be in drag? I hope I never need Berkell to represent me.
    Since she is bent on giving ISIS an excuse for savagery perhaps she could
    work for Holder’s old firm that defended terrorists.

  4. Well, thanks to Obama I’m a “working refugee” (2011 – 2014) which has devastated my livelihood. Guess I’m justified in going on a killing spree? /sarc
    These people make no sense…but that’s never the goal when pushing an agenda.

  5. I think they got kicked in the head by a unicorn somewhere in their past.They’re not from here (Earth),are they?

  6. To borrow a quote often used by pastor Paul Begley “are they serous are they really really serious”
    I always thought global warming was caused by bovine flatulence:-) Which could be expanded to mean excessive cow windyness caused ISIS

  7. Birds of a feather flock together — they both look like a couple of loonies. If this is a sample of their intelligence, we can well conclude that they are indeed loony! How many bazillions of years have Arabs lived in desert countries? Would you not conclude that they are accustomed to hot and dry. Down through history Muslims have committed atrocities, it didn’t just start at the time so called scientists came up with the idea of climate change. These two should get a grip on reality.

  8. Yet you never see them throwing fits about worthless road construction and other flagrant abuses of the environment, the green they’re concerned with is clearly not of plants, so one must reasonably conclude the green they’re concerned with is that of filthy lucre.
    Does anyone actually believe that unfortunate weather can “grow” terrorists, Really?

  9. Do I hear God laughing?!
