    In a new audiotape that surfaced today on the al-Jazeera network, Osama bin Laden has pronounced himself a believer in climate change and blames America and other industrialised economies for failing to rein in greenhouse gas emissions that are warming the atmosphere.

    Am I the only person who believes this is phoney? I mean come on a most wanted terrorist has time to discuss climate change. It’s starting to get ridiculous this like the third time this month.

    There was a TV programme about him a few weeks ago, they pretty much said that they believe he is dead now, audiotapes cannot be proven to be real, or therefore fake. So it is hard to tell if he is alive, a video would be more ideal, but this can still be hard to tell if its fake or not. Technology is so well advanced, anything can be done to alter the video/audio.

    America is not soley to blame for it all though, but meh, he has a point?

    I don't think they have supercomputers or advanced video editing software in the middle of the desert. But all they need to do is get some random guy off the street, dress him in a beard, a white gown, and a white towel and there you go! Bin Laden!

    As surprising as it may seem, a lot of Bin Laden's earlier videos were about issues regarding economies, businesses, taxation and the flaws of banking systems around the world. Don't know the validity of the audio tapes, but this climate change thing wouldn't be a complete surprise to those who know what his previos speeches have been about.

    Many actually believe that if his identity was not disclosed then people would think the speeches make some good point, quite philosophical. However, as he is a mass murderer and one of the most dangerous men on the planet obviously all listeners judge his speeches to be ****.

    I wish I had a SR-71 blackbird armed with missiles so I could fly around the mountainous caves on the Afghan border and kill him :cool:
