Barack Obama says that climate change is a greater threat than ISIS, and John Kerry recently made the same point, though he phrased it in the dumbest way possible. “Air conditioners are just as big a threat as ISIS,” he put it.
Well, reality begs to differ. Climate related deaths have tanked like a rock over the past century on their own, all throughout the age of climate change hysteria.
Why? Because it’s a hell of a lot easier to improve our infrastructure to protect us from the climate than it is to try to change the climate itself. In 2013, there were 29,404 climate related deaths, which is 99.4% lower than the 5,073,283 in 1932. And of course, those are all deaths related to climate – not climate change.
On the other hand, the issue of terrorism isn’t going to improve as easily, and ISIS’ death toll only continues to rise over time.
The terror group ISIS along with its predecessors and affiliates carried out over 4,900 attacks between 2002 and 2015, killing more than 33,000 people in assaults that stretched from the Middle East to western nations, according to a new study.
ISIS-related attacks comprised 13 percent of all terror attacks globally during the 13-year period, according to research released Tuesday from the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism at the University of Maryland. In addition to killing tens of thousands of people worldwide, assaults by ISIS, also known as the Islamic State or ISIL, have caused 41,000 injuries and involved 11,000 hostage takings or kidnappings. ISIS and its affiliates caused one quarter of the deaths from terror attacks during the period.
While ISIS did not assume its current name until 2013, researchers evaluated the patterns of ISIS-related attacks beginning in 2002 by looking at assaults perpetrated by its predecessors. The study, which was funded by the Department of Homeland Security, also examined attacks carried out by ISIS militants in its so-called “caliphate” in Iraq and Syria, attacks by affiliated organizations such as the Khorasan Province in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and ISIS-inspired attacks.
And that barely encompasses the true brutality of ISIS. It doesn’t include the countless people they’ve tortured, chopped the hands off of for stealing, women they’ve stoned for adultery, civilians they’ve killed for “un-Islamic” actions, countless sex slaves their soldiers house, and the homosexuals they’ve tossed off of rooftops.
Which do you think is the greater threat, ISIS, or the sun? I think the answer is pretty obvious….
