For general discussion and debate. Possible talking point: Bin Laden blames the U.S. for global warming.

Al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden has called for the world to boycott American goods and the U.S. dollar, blaming the United States and other industrialized countries for global warming, according to a new audiotape released Friday.

In the tape, broadcast in part on Al-Jazeera television, bin Laden warned of the dangers of climate change and says that the way to stop it is to bring "the wheels of the American economy" to a halt.

Sounds like an endorsement of Cap and Trade. Thoughts?
