Democrat Says Global Warming Caused Black Hawk Down And Dafur

REP. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) is chairman of the House (Select) Energy Independence and Global Warming Committee.

He tells high school students gathered at the U.S. Capitol that climate change caused Hurricane Katrina and the conflict in Darfur, which led to the “black hawk down” battle between U.S. troops and Somali rebels.

“In Somalia back in 1993, climate change, according to 11 three- and four-star generals, resulted in a drought which led to famine,” said Markey.

“That famine translated to international aid we sent in to Somalia, which then led to the U.S. having to send in forces to separate all the groups that were fighting over the aid, which led to Black Hawk Down. There was this scene where we have all of our American troops under fire because they have been put into the middle of this terrible situation,” he added.

It was global warming what dunnit, yer honour. And wimmin:

“Back 100 years ago, women rose up and said we want the right to vote, and they were successful,” he said. “Now, you are like the green generation and you are rising up and saying we must ensure the planet does not suffer the worst consequences of climate change.”

Watch out for the horse power, Mr Markey…
