Crazies in University Classrooms: “NYC professor believes “climate change” created ISIS.”

Did you think that Cal Berkeley, SF State and UC Irvine have exclusives with professors that fried their brains once too often? Nope, NYU (New York University) has a professor that is trying to make Al Gore look honest and sane. This is from Professor Cahrles Stozier:

“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?”

“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,” the two write, “many in the West remain unaware that climate played a significant role in the rise of Syria’s extremists.”

Guess he does not know about the thousands of years of hate in the Middle Eat—before anyone heard of the Al Gore scam. Doe this explain why America is in such trouble?

The NYC professor writes that Americans are ignorant to how climate change led to the rise in Syrian extremists.

Campus Reform, 9/20/14

A professor is blaming climate change and overpopulation for the creation of the terrorist group ISIS.

Charles Strozier, Professor of History and the founding Director of the John Jay College Center on Terrorism and Kelly Berkell, research assistant at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, wrote a blog piece in the Huffington Post called “ How Climate Change Helped ISIS,” where they argue that a four-year drought in Syria, from 2006 through 2010, “devastated the livelihoods of 800,000 farmers and herders; and knocked two to three million people into extreme poverty.”

“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?”

“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,” the two write, “many in the West remain unaware that climate played a significant role in the rise of Syria’s extremists.”

“Many became climate refugees,” Strozier and Berkell write.

The pair offer a call to action for 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?” they write.

“While ISIS threatens brutal violence against all who dissent from its harsh ideology, climate change menaces communities (less maliciously) with increasingly extreme weather.”

Neither Strozier or Berkell are climate scientists according to an article in Climate Depot.Strozier is a practicing psychoanalyst in New York City and Berkell has a history of securities and corporate litigation.

  1. I hear a lot of really stupid things but this is unbelievable.. climate change causes terrorism… someone’s brain is fried… drinking WAY too much of that koolaid…
    it is time we start calling a spade a spade and STOP ALL THIS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS GARBAGE… AM SO SICK OF THIS GOVERNMENT AND OTHER IDIOTS CALLING TERRORISM -WORK PLACE VIOLENCE, OR A CRAZY PERSON COMMITTING CRIMES… and STOP the nonsense about “Racial Profiling”… IT IS A VERY VERY IMPORTANT LAW ENFORCMENT TOOL… Did the climate change also cause the attack on police officers in NYC yesterday? Wonder what the NYC professor thinks about that attack!! This country these days, is filled with idiots who certainly sound as if they either have NO brains or they are totally fried. OUr government is the worse…

  2. Climate does change, that’s why we have four seasons. Climate has cycles and according to WeatherBELL the current cycle we’re experiencing is similar to the 1950’s and 1960’s. Being old enough to have lived in that era I cannot disagree. 108-113 degree summer days were common. And little rain. To actually study climate will take thousands of years and must include an extensive search of the relationship of the sun and its effect on weather. Of course anybody with common sense would know this and remain skeptical of any conclusion…especially conclusions determined by faulty software computing. Follow the money as one scientific expert put it.

  3. And I thought we had all the Looney Tunes on the West Coast.

    Hopefully John Jay Center will be sufficiently embarrassed and fire his psycho ass!
