What's Your Car Bomb Footprint?

Our Left has opted out of the Long War on Islamo-fascism. That is a made up threat--notwithstanding actual jihadi attacks around the globe, including 9/11--according to them. The real threat is from computer-modeled futures that project we will have higher global temperatures in a century or so that will devastate the planet. This fight gives our Left great satisfaction:

It is much easier to fight global warming than to fight human evil. You will be celebrated at Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, the BBC and throughout the media world, no one will threaten your life, there are huge grants available to scientists and others who fight real or exaggerated environmental problems, and you may even receive an Academy Award and the Nobel Peace Prize. Individuals who fight Islamists get fatwas.

Yep. Incandescent light bulbs tossed in the trash won't try to behead you. Yet you can still pretend your pathetically small symbolic action is equivalent to storming a Japanese island and raising our flag under fire.

Not surprisingly, al Qaeda would like us to focus on global warming and our carbon footprint rather than hunt them down and kill them in Iraq and the rest of the world:

Al-Zawahri even addressed global warming, saying it showed "how criminal, brutal and greedy the Western Crusader world is, with America at the top."

He predicted that global warming "would make the world more sympathetic to and understanding of the Muslims' jihad (holy war) against the aggressor America."

"Would make" the world more sympathetic and understanding of jihad? Has Zawahri been living in a cave, or something? He just described our existing "progressives" who don't even admit a jihad is going on in their zeal to "save the planet."

I want to know what the car bomb footprint of our Left is these days. They must be part of the problem since they sure as heck aren't part of the solution.

Consider this my Earth Day post. Have a nice day.
