Morano on Tucker: Refuting CBS claim that climate change fueled Taliban takeover

CFACT’s Marc Morano appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox to refute the claim by CBS News that climate change fueled the rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan.

CBS reported: “Rural Afghanistan has been rocked by climate change. The past three decades have brought floods and drought that have destroyed crops and left people hungry. And the Taliban — likely without knowing climate change was the cause — has taken advantage of that pain.” … “The Taliban has capitalized on the agricultural stress and distrust in government to recruit supporters. Alam said the group has the means to pay fighters more, $5-$10 per day, than what they can make farming.”

Morano said that the media has a “long history” of using climate change to defend Democrats.
