Martin O’Malley Blames Climate Change for ISIS
Terrorism comes from droughts?
Mark Halperin of Bloomberg Politics recently interviewed 2016 Democratic Party presidential candidate Martin O’Malley. Their discussion covered a wide range of topics, but when talk turned to foreign policy, O’Malley suggested that climate change was behind the rise of ISIS.

Martin O’Malley: Climate Change Created ISIS
MARTIN O’MALLEY: One of the things that preceded the failure of the nation state of Syria and the rise of ISIS, was the effect of climate change and the mega-drought that affected that nation, wiped out farmers, drove people to cities, created a humanitarian crisis that created the symptoms — or rather, the conditions — of extreme poverty that has now led to the rise of ISIS and this extreme violence.
The interview is approximately six minutes long. To hear the segment on ISIS and climate change, skip to the 3:40 mark:
Climate change seems to be an important issue for O’Malley. Not only does it cause terrorism, it also creates jobs.
From O’Malley’s website:
Op-Ed: A Jobs Agenda for Our Renewable Energy Future
We have come a long way as a nation in making ourselves more energy independent. Now is the time to take this progress to the next level — the future of our country and our planet depends on it.
New technologies now put an independent clean energy future decidedly within our reach as a nation.
But reach for it we must.
Clean energy represents the biggest business and job creation opportunity we’ve seen in a hundred years. Reliance on local, renewable energy sources also means a more secure nation and a more stable world.
Given the grave threat that climate change poses to human life on our planet, we have not only a business imperative but a moral obligation to future generations to act immediately and aggressively.
This is why protecting the United States from the devastating impact of climate change — while capitalizing on the job creation opportunity of clean energy — is at the center of my campaign for President.

Just like Trump and some of the Republican candidates are scoring major points pushing back against the progressive lawlessness related to illegal immigration, the smart candidate will push back HARD against this AGW Lunacy. What kind of moron doesn’t know that large parts of the Middle East are drought stricken on a fairly constant basis? Almost 40% of Syria’s recorded history has been in drought. These progs will spew any lie imaginable to wrest more control and power.
Hey what would a pasty old white man of privilege like Martin O’Malley know from nothing?
So easy to see why Martin O’Malley is FORMER!!!!!!
I do not know O’Malley or Jerry Brown so I have three questions:
1) Are these two really that stupid? Or,
2) Do they think the voters are that stupid?
Just remember that 47% of the voters believe that Congress is made up of old, white slaveholders.
TX, yes, yes and yes.
Never underestimate the evil we are up against.
Did O’Malley just get campaign funding from the Global Warming bunch?
Local renewable energy sources. I guess he wants us to go back to cooking with dung.
I think he has that market corned along with Obama and
Well, that works either way.
IF you mean as a dietary staple…
then, yeah. Collectivists what you to eat shit and die. They HATE people.
The climate was cooler in the 7th century when Islam conquered Persia and initiated their thousand year warfare against Christian Europe. Who and what was to blame then?
I blame lead paint for Martin O’malley.
Recreational drugs and excess alcohol in college.
If droughts caused terrorism then my state of Arizona would be a hotbed of terrorism.
We can’t beg, borrow, or steal a raindrop around here. Monsoon season has been a big bust so far. #prayingforrain
This cretin APOLOGIZED for saying ‘all lives matter.’
Say no more.
It’s the attack of the Goreans!
Aliens have stolen the brains of some politicians, politicians who are especially vulnerable to attacks of pop scientism! Run for your lives all low information voters!
ISIS is not science on politics!
Just another Climate Change myth loon. This is a cult with these people.
It boils down to hopes for global control, global government, a global tax…more big crony bucks.
It’s really a conspiracy and political agenda – these climate change promoters really don’t believe their climate change nonsense, it’s strictly business/politics.
But, they will try to force you to believe using increasing levels of force.
BINGO! We have a winner!
RE: “It boils down to hopes for global control, global government, a global tax…more big crony bucks.”
O’Malley could give a shit less about “global warning”. This is just one way to stay to the left of Hillary.
If your ideology forbids you from identifying the real problem (Islam), come up with a fake one.
Dont laugh – there is a large segment of the nutroots population that believe the global warming has greatly facilitated the growth of ISIS.
There is a large segment of the nutroots population that believe bush 43 caused the creation of ISIS, not withstanding the fact that the religion began circa 660ad
When Katrina hit, that was the responsibility of global warming, the first lie. (Make ém stick to their first lie.) Now that we have gone years without a named tropical storm hitting the continental United States, well, that´s what global warming does.* Just like bacon, is there anything global warming can´t do?
*Sandy was a named tropical storm while it was at sea, but by the time she made landfall had been downgraded, and was no longer a Category 1 tropical storm.
Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away, all tropical storms had female names. Years ago we switched to alternating lists, one year female names, the next male. In the Neatherdahl caribbean, tropical storms with female names get less respect than storms of male names, and so the female named storms cause more deaths. Those people think female named storms can´t be as bad a male named storms, and don´t take the same precautions, hence the increased death rates. But hey, we´re being politically correct and safe, as most of us don´t need to deal with tropical storms.
No, no no. They alternate storms.
Something like Alan, Betty, Carol, David.
In alternate years the first name is male or female.
There are actually only 6 lists, but storms that become hurricanes (or maybe that become famous) are taken off the list and replaced with another name of the same gender beginning with the same letter of the alphabet.
Not all letters are used and it possible to run out of human names. They did in 2005. They had to use 3 Greek letters of the alphabet I think.
I try to push that first claim as well. “Gee, wasn’t global warming supposed to cause global drought?” etc.
This is not actually original with Martin O’Malley.
CO2 is one POWERFUL molecule. It causes global warming, global cooling, climate weirding, climate change, rape, snow, drought, floods, infidelity and now terrorism. And to think it is only .004% of the atmosphere. As I said, “One POWERFUL molecule.”
Idiot or pathetic opportunist.
