Massachusetts Institute of Technology hosted an event last night during which speaker Ghassan Hage argued that “Islamophobia” was responsible for the acceleration of global warming.

According to a description of the event, the talk examined “the relation between Islamophobia as the dominant form of racism today and the ecological crisis.”

Perhaps Hage didn’t get the memo that Islam is a belief system, not a race.

According to Hage, Islamophobia and global warming are connected because they both originate “in colonial forms of capitalist accumulation.”

Hage also has a book coming out soon entitled Are racists responsible for global warming?

Theologian George Igler summed up the ludicrousness of the issue best when he tweeted, “This lecture took place at MIT, the world’s foremost scientific research establishment, on Monday at 5pm. Seriously.”

This is yet another example of the regressive left’s obsession with intersectionality, in other words – everything that they claim is a form of oppression (which in the world of perpetually offended grievance junkies is literally everything) is tied in with everything else.

However, it’s by no means the first time that the mythical boogeyman of “Islamophobia” has been blamed for real world issues.

As Robert Spencer highlighted, back in February Time Magazine featured an article by Haroon Moghul which argued that Islamophobia was also the cause of America’s crumbling infrastructure.
