As a secularist, I blame myself.

A MUSLIM cleric has blamed the drought, climate change and pollution on the lack of faith Australians have in Allah.

Sheik Mohammed Omran told followers at his Melbourne mosque that out-of-control secular scientific values had caused environmental disaster.

“The fear of Allah is not there,” he said at a recent meeting. “So we now have a polluted earth, a polluted water, a wasteland.

“What are the people now crying for? The prophet told you hundreds of years ago, ‘Look after the water’.”

More goodies at the link, including choice excerpts from a sermon about outbreeding the kaffir. Meanwhile, as Pelosi announces the members of the House’s new global warming committee, Hollywood prepares to take its environmentalism to its logical conclusion: movies in which the earth itself is cast as hero and does battle with the evil humans who despoil it.

Exit question: is Omran’s supernatural explanation for climate change more or less plausible than Jerry Falwell’s?
