Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders: Global Warming More Dangerous Than Al-Qaeda…
Just look at the body counts: Global warming = Zero. Al-Qaeda = Countless thousands every year.
Via Daily Caller:
Forget al-Qaida. According to the Senate’s only openly socialist member, the country’s main national security threat is global warming.
In fact, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders told Playboy magazine that climate change is a bigger threat to the U.S. than al-Qaida. Sanders is an independent who caucuses with the Democrats.
Sanders blames “hypercapitalism” for the inaction on global warming, due to the fossil fuels industry manipulating the political process to drown out efforts to cut carbon dioxide emissions. [...]
“Big business is willing to destroy the planet for short-term profits. I regard that as just incomprehensible. Incomprehensible. And because of their power over the political process, you hear a deafening silence in the U.S. Congress and in other bodies around the world about the severity of the problem. Global warming is a far more serious problem than Al Qaeda,” Sanders added.
