In a special Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing on the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 held at the National 9/11 Memorial & Museum in New York City, NY, Democrats chose to blame Middle Eastern terrorism on “climate change.”

The hearing, which featured testimony from several former Directors of Homeland Security, was intended to “progress over intelligence sharing among the federal agencies and with allies since the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001.”

But Senate Democrats refused to pin the attacks on radicalized Islam, instead blaming carbon emissions for worldwide terrorism.

“Climate change poses and existential threat not only to the United States but our entire planet,” said Michigan Democrat Sen. Gary Peters.

According to Peters, the “lesson learned” from the 9/11 attacks was that America must embrace radical environmentalism.

“With nearly two decades of lessons learned, the time has come for a clear-eyed assessment of what has worked and what needs to be improved,” saod Peters. “…In order to build a more sustainable department and defend ourselves from global threats, we must look to the future…This is a difficult conversation, but one we must have to ensure we never again face a catastrophic event like September 11.”

According to liberals like Peters, Middle Eastern terrorism is caused by people displaced from their homes by “extreme weather,” which they claim is caused by carbon dioxide emissions from Americans.

It is, in fact, caused by people subscribing to a wildly radicalized form of Islam.

Former Obama administration Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano also blamed illegal immigration on “climate change.”

“It is also time for Congress and DHS to recognize climate change as a generational threat to the homeland that must be addressed in a meaningful way…Extreme weather is destroying crop yields in Central and South America, devastating economies, and driving out jobs and gainful employment opportunities,” claimed Napolitano. “With lost jobs and lost wages, the aperture towards radicalization widens, as does the draw of northward migration.”

That is false. People are fleeing nations like Honduras because they face violence from drug cartels. Despite Napolitano’s claim increased carbon dioxide is curbing crop yields, science shows increased carbon dioxide increases crop yields.
