Iranian women’s clothing ‘causing rivers to run dry’, says senior cleric

Immorality among women is causing a river in Iran to dry up, according to a senior cleric from the Islamic Republic

Seyyed Youssef Tabatabi-nejad, who leads Friday prayers in Isfahan, encouraged the country’s morality police to crack down on ‘improper veiling’ and suggested women’s immodest clothing was having an impact on the environment.

    So it’s “women’s immodest clothing” that’s causing global warming! And we thought it was our carbon footprint that was to blame, silly us.

    Same sort of reasoned arguments offered by the Climate Change Club, just a bit further down the loony counter.

      No, it is not further down the loony counter when the climate change supporters attribute terrorism to global warming.

      • Mal

        Quite right, Alain. I gave the enviroloons far too much credit.
