CBS News claims 'climate change' is to blame for Afghanistan falling to the Taliban

CBS News has been shredded by critics after the "news" outlet attempted to shift the blame for the disaster in Afghanistan away from Democrat Joe Biden and instead claim that "climate change" handed the country to the Taliban.

In a Friday report, CBS News claimed that climate change had helped strengthen the Taliban.

According to CBS, this newfound climate-induced "strength" helped the terrorist group take over Afghanistan while thousands of Americans are still trapped behind enemy lines.

In the report titled "How climate change helped strengthen the Taliban," CBS News's climate and energy reporter Cara Korte does backflips to shift blame away from Democrats and onto the environment.

The report states that "rural Afghanistan" has been "rocked by climate change."

Korte said the Taliban has "taken advantage" of those who have suffered from floods and droughts that have destroyed their crops and left them hungry.

The report also said that snow and glaciers in the north mountains "have melted more quickly and earlier than ever before."

This melting apparently leads to flooding and droughts in the winter while "heavy precipitation" has increased in the south and west "by 10 to 25% over the past 30 years."

Kamal Alam, a nonresident senior fellow at the Atlantic Council's South Asia Center, told CBS News the Taliban exploits Afghan farmers.

They are then allegedly recruited by the terror group, where they can make more money than they could as farmers.

Critics mocked the report on social media, many suggesting it's a story perfect for the conservative satirical website The Babylon Bee. 

"Amazing," The Spectator contributor Stephen Miller reacted.

"I can’t believe CBS beat @TheBabylonBee to this," Forbes contributor Patrick Gleason wrote.

"CBS News is really just ripping off the Babylon Bee now," conservative writer Harry Khachatrian similarly tweeted.
