CIA Quietly Closes Global Warming Unit (Center on Climate Change and National Security)

CIA Quietly Closes Global Warming Unit
CORRUPTION CHRONICLES

More than three years—and no doubt a chunk of change—later, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is quietly shutting down its insignificant center dedicated to climate change.

That’s 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 Obama’s 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.

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?

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.

Oops.

"""""rising sea levels""""....FAIL, "Sandy"

"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.

They're still trying to figure out how to help that poor Nigerian prince get his money out of the country for him.

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.

They must have been caught by the fiscal cliff. I can’t imagine any other reason for halting such a worthwhile effort.
