Concerns over carbon emissions drove the Tsarnaev brothers to murder

SO. What made the Tsarnaev brothers murder and maim in Boston? Islam? One of these myriad reasons. How about the environment and concerns over emissions? The New York Times’s Thomas Friedman knows:

Until we fully understand what turned two brothers who allegedly perpetrated the Boston Marathon bombings into murderers, it is hard to make any policy recommendation other than this: We need to redouble our efforts to make America stronger and healthier so it remains a vibrant counterexample to whatever bigoted ideology may have gripped these young men. With all our warts, we have built a unique society — a country where a black man, whose middle name is Hussein, whose grandfather was a Muslim, can run for president and first defeat a woman in his own party and then four years later a Mormon from the opposition, and no one thinks twice about it. With so many societies around the world being torn apart, especially in the Middle East, it is vital that America survives and flourishes as a beacon of pluralism.

Rebuilding our strength has to start with healing our economy …

And the best place to start is with a carbon tax. *

The surviving Tsarnaev brother may care to ponder his impact on the Boston environment.

* Hitler was, of course, upset about the Americans love of processed food.
