Time Magazinen ^ | 5/14/14 | Michelle Arrouas

Climate change is a "catalyst for conflict" and a "threat multiplier" posing a growing national-security threat to the U.S., a new report finds...

Global warming presents the U.S. with several security threats and has led to conflicts over food and water because of droughts and extreme weather, says the report, which was written by a dozen retired American generals and published by the Center for Naval Analyses Military Advisory Board on Tuesday.

A real threat is the allowing of Iran to have nukes, turning our back on Israel, encouraging the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, allowing Al Qaeda to flourish in Libya, borrowing trillions from China for welfare programs, destroying our relationship with Russia, and betraying the forces of freedom in Venezuela.

Climate change is small potatoes.

As more and more people ignore them, their desperation grows.

Next up: climate change causes cancer.

Eventually: climate change rips holes in the fabric of spacetime.

It is the height of human arrogance to believe that the actions of mankind’s day-to-day existence compared to the massive planetary scale of the Earth’s life cycle amounts to anything beyond miniscule.

The politics of it, however, is an engine of mass devolution, destruction and enslavement unparalleled.

OK!! Everybody pay attention!

Lesson for today:

1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.

2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.

3. The earth is one of the sun’s planets.

4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.

5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.

Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?

Actually, “Climate Change”, or the lack thereof, poses a serious security threat to elected Democrats. It significantly threatens their re-election security.

The only catastrophe would be to listen to the hysterics who tell us that the only way to save ourselves is to reduce CO2 emissions by 50% from 1990’s levels. Right. Lets bring about a real disaster to avoid one predicted by a group of hysterics that have been wrong about all sorts of environmental disasters for the last 60 years.

  We know that Obama thinks he can control the sea levels. We need some ego control in both the legislative and executive branches of government.

The key is you cannot have a cap and trade market without convincing the people that carbon is bad.

There is a lot of people who want a new market and have a bunch of money bet on it.

Climate Change Poses Growing National-Security Threat

It's true. But the threat is not from the Climate Change itself, if any, it's from those who are forcing the insanely expensive "solutions" down our throats.
They are trying to ruin our country's economy and that's the real threat.
A correct headline should read: Climate Change Politics Poses Growing National-Security Threat.

Fred Thompson tried to make that point back in 2008.

When they decided to double down after the fraud was revealed, I knew it was a turning point.

That this is working means that, eventually, we will go to war with the Left or be crushed.

Since no one pays attention to the “doom and gloom” stuff anymore, they will soon declare climate change to be racist and homophobic.

The distraction that the phony “Climate Change” agenda presents IS the “THREAT” to Nat’s Security!

It takes our attention and resources away for combating terrorism and most importantly ENERGY INDEPENDENCE!

As America becomes more energy independent, America has less exposure and physical presence in Muslim countries.

No rational person believes this rubbish, but there are billions of pork dollars at stake. The orchestrated Obama/media campaign rolls on.

“These effects are threat multipliers that will aggravate stressors abroad, such as poverty, environmental degradation, political instability and social tensions — conditions that can enable terrorist activity and other forms of violence,”

So basically "climate change" leads to scarce resources and poverty, which lead to political instability and social tension. What a load of s___t. That could be said about anything, including Socialism. The generals who wrote this nonsense ought to be ashamed of themselves.

“Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?”

Baaaaaant. Wrong question. It should be
“How do less-than-specks of dirt in congress plan to get the
majority of the people to believe a bald face lie”

Climate disruption is a direct assault on the LGBT community. We all know that. We just choose to ignore it.

Actually, what will happen is China, Russia, India and the rest of the Free World will crush the Climate Change axis powers (US and Euroweenies) in World War III. We are on the losing side. The side with a debt load that has exploded in part because of money wasted on the Climate Change issue. While the US and Europe waste time and money on AGW and enforcing Tolerance Policies, the Free World has been expanding its military capabilities dramatically.
