Twenty-two. The Obama Administration has said at least 22 times that climate change is a greater threat than terrorism. Breitbart News put together a list of the 22 times, dating back to 2008 and leading all the way through to Obama’s September 2015 speech in front of the UN.

Breitbart News reports: 

ISIS has taken responsibility for the horrifying attacks in Paris that have left more than 150 dead and hundreds wounded. French President Francois Hollande is calling for the closure of his country’s borders. President Barack Obama didn’t condemn Islamic radicals for the attacks, but he did call them “an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians” and “an attack on all of humanity and the universal values we share.”

Friday’s deadly attacks thwarted Al Gore’s long-planned Paris webcast and star-studded concert to promote climate change awareness. “Out of solidarity with the French people and the City of Paris, we have decided to suspend our broadcast of 24 Hours of Reality and Live Earth,” the group said in an online statement. Coincidentally, in July 2008, Al Gore called climate change a more dangerous threat than terrorism. “I think that the climate crisis is, by far, the most serious threat we have ever faced,” Gore told ABC News.

In related news, during the Democratic debate on Saturday night, Bernie Sanders told moderators that climate change “is directly related to the growth of terrorism.” That’s right- climate change is to blame for the rise of terrorism. Not, you know, tiny details like radical Islam.
