It's Not Jihad, It's Global Warming

Jihad has nothing to do with the violence in Darfur says UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon in the Washington Post. Instead, it was caused by drought which in turn was caused by global warming:

It is no accident that the violence in Darfur erupted during the drought. Until then, Arab nomadic herders had lived amicably with settled farmers. A recent Atlantic Monthly article by Stephan Faris describes how black farmers would welcome herders as they crisscrossed the land, grazing their camels and sharing wells. But once the rains stopped, farmers fenced their land for fear it would be ruined by the passing herds. For the first time in memory, there was no longer enough food and water for all. Fighting broke out. By 2003, it evolved into the full-fledged tragedy we witness today.

Economics, or rather poverty, is always the "root cause," isn't that what Marx said? And of course human beings are only animals fighting over food, or "resources." There couldn't be any other motivation.
