CIA Quietly Closes Global Warming Unit
More than three yearsand no doubt a chunk of changelater, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is quietly shutting down its insignificant center dedicated to climate change.
Thats right; the scandal-plagued government agency responsible for providing national security intelligence to senior U.S. policymakers operated a special unit that focused on global warming. Known as the Center on Climate Change and National Security, it was an exclusive division led by senior specialists. It operated under a cloak of secrecy that rejected all public-records requests, despite President Obamas promise to run a transparent government.
When the center was launched in 2009, the CIA said it would not address the science of climate change but rather the national security impact of phenomena such as desertification, rising sea levels, population shifts and heightened competition for natural resources. The unit was touted as an important tool that would bring together in a single place expertise on an important national security topic; the effect environmental factors can have on political, economic and social stability overseas.

Man-made globalwarming, what a crock of sh!t.
Likelihood is the agency was staffed by people with brains that concluded there was nothing to do - because it’s a bunch of crap.
Does this mean the CIA isn’t going to fall for the unicorn scam?
what a waste of money and time.
but i guess they too wanted some of that gravy train, while it lasted.
Looks like Al’s getting bored waiting for the glaciers to melt.
What a shame, they did such good work.
Back in the 1970’s, I read a book called ‘The Weather Conspiracy’ (IIRC) that was based on a declassified CIA report on changing weather patterns. Of course, the climate change they saw and postulated was global cooling. I would guess that the CIA shut this waste of money down when somebody found that real spooks had already done the legwork and analysis and conclusions 40 years ago.
"population shifts", hahaha FAIL we're moving out of your BLUE STATES anyway.
"heightened competition for natural resources." FAIL, oil companies in ND, don't give a damn about your heightened competition, and that pipeline will be built without you.
CIA could do nothing to prevent anything, BIG FAIL. rofl. But of course, close the dept. up quietly, ok, we won't tell, but we will laugh.
Now that we have that out of the way, we can use more COW BELLS.. Yep.. More COW BELLS, would really liven this place up.. :)
Western Union says they're transferring the money and the CIA keeps sending more, but the return transfers just aren't working.
That CIA division was created to appease the climate change constituency, and to make it appear that, Obama and his administration cared. But mostly, Obama cared about the votes that those people (and the people that followed the climate change agenda) could bring.
Since Obama cannot run for president anymore, Obama could care less about that division, and so, it’s not needed anymore.
Our stupid county voted for a $250,000.00 study on the effects of future imminent rising oceans due to Climate Change. Yepper a California in debt state with no where better to put this money, dumb screw nuts.
