CAIRO (AP) - A new tape purportedly from Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden says global warming is the United States' fault, along with other industrialized nations.
The voice on the tape calls for the world to boycott American goods and the U.S. dollar.
In the tape, aired in part on Al-Jazeera television Friday, bin Laden warns of the dangers of climate change and says that the way to stop it is to bring "the wheels of the American economy" to a halt.
He says the world should "stop consuming American products" and "refrain from using the dollar," according to a transcript on Al-Jazeera's Web site.
The new message, whose authenticity could not immediately be confirmed, comes after a bin Laden tape released last week in which he endorsed a failed attempt to blow up an American airliner on Christmas Day.
