Solution for Darfur Genocide: Stop Breathing

According to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, “the slaughter in Darfur was triggered by global climate change and that more such conflicts may be on the horizon,” reports Breitbart. “The Darfur conflict began as an ecological crisis, arising at least in part from climate change…. This suggests that the drying of sub-Saharan Africa derives, to some degree, from man-made global warming…. It is no accident that the violence in Darfur erupted during the drought.” In short, 450,000 people died in Darfur not only because you drive a car and run a television and computer, but also because you have the audacity to emit carbon dioxide.

In fact, as the U.S. State Department admits, the “primary cleavage is ethnic: Arabs (GOS and militia forces) vs. non-Arab villagers belonging primarily to the Zaghawa, Massalit, and Fur ethnic groups [also the Tunjur, the Birgid, the Dajo, and others]. Both groups are predominately Muslim.”

“These people have long been politically and economically marginalized, and in recent years the National Islamic Front regime, based in Sudan’s capital of Khartoum, has refused to control increasingly violent Arab militia raids of African villages in Darfur,” writes Eric Reeves. “Competition between Arab and African tribal groups over the scarce primary resources in Darfur—arable land and water—has been exacerbated by advancing desertification throughout the Sahel region.”

Of course, there is no evidence this desertification is a result of “climate change,” but that will not stop Ban Ki-moon and the United Nations from insinuating that your daily commute to work in an air conditioned car is responsible for the murder of nearly a half million people.

Climate change behind Darfur killing: UN’s Ban

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said that the slaughter in Darfur was triggered by global climate change and that more such conflicts may be on the horizon, in an article published Saturday. “The Darfur conflict began as an ecological crisis, arising at least in part from climate change,” Ban said in a Washington Post opinion column.

UN statistics showed that rainfall declined some 40 percent over the past two decades, he said, as a rise in Indian Ocean temperatures disrupted monsoons.

“This suggests that the drying of sub-Saharan Africa derives, to some degree, from man-made global warming,” the South Korean diplomat wrote.
