In a shock move, environmentalists have appointed Osama Bin Laden their new leader, after the fanatical terrorist made comments about how the US is to blame for climate change.
Bin Laden said, "All industrial nations, mainly the big ones, are responsible for the crisis of global warming. But especially the US and the UK. It all started with the UK in the Victorian era, when they started building those big polluting factories. Queen Victoria is really to blame for global warming."
"In the Middle East, in other poor areas of the world, we didn't build any factories. We do not take any of the blame for global warming although we might have to suffer because of it. If only the West had stayed in a backward, medieval state, without industrialising then we wouldn't be in this mess. You see, I care about the planet, I want humanity to survive - or at least those humans who worship me."
A spokesman said, "We need a big name to give us greater global publicity. And let's be honest, there are few celebrities who are as well known as Osama Bin Laden. We want him to speak for us. Death to America!!"
