Ban Ki-Moon's Ingenious (Or Is It Disingenuous?) Paris Stratagem

When the savagery of ISIS and its fellow caliphatists is running amuck, what's the best way to persuade the world that climate change is the most pressing problem du jour?
Isn't it obvious?
You make the counter-intuitive not to mention gobsmacking claim that terrorism is caused by climate change.
Not by the jihad imperative embedded in Islam's core religious teachings.
Not by the desire--call it Totalitarianism 2.0--to want to create a global caliphate to lord it over the planet.
By environmental changes about which we likely can do next to nothing, even though, in our errant arrogance, we think we can do plenty.
Who does Ban Ki-Moon think he is, anyway?

Bernie "Curb Your Enthusiasm" Sanders?

Update: While terrorism has nothing to do with climate change, clamping down on climate change protesters has a lot to do with recent terrorism.
