President Donald Trump has approved a new U.S. counterterrorism strategy, but it drops the Obama administrations treatment of climate change as a driver of violent Islamic extremist groups.
Asked if the Trump plan identifies climate change as a destabilizing force in the Middle East that fuels extremist groups, national security adviser John Bolton replied: I dont think climate change is a cause of international terrorism.
In a December 2016 speech about his administrations strategy for countering violent extremist groups, President Barack Obama included climate change as an ingredient that helps lead to terrorism.
Long-term corruption has rotted too many nation-states from within. Governance is collapsing. Sectarian conflicts rage. A changing climate is increasing competition for food and water, Obama added. And false prophets are peddling a vision of Islam that is irreconcilable with tolerance and modernity and basic science.
Bolton also said the strategy is different from the Obama administrations in another way: It clearly declares the United States is fighting a radical extremist ideology. Bolton called the new plan the first updated conceptual framework on combating terrorist groups since 2011.

THIS IS SATIRE, RIGHT?.....................
With ol’ B. Hussein Obama, I don’t think so.
Doubt it. Leftists blame climate change for many things that are in no way related. Climate change is just another aspect of their “religion.”
HYSTERICAL! Thanks for the laugh!
I have heard, that Obama had directed the defense department, to take climate change into account with military operations.
We’ve had climate change for 14-1500 years, dontcha know?
Ramirez is so good...
IT IS THEIR RELIGION........................
Literally guffawing at my desk when I read this. I would think it's satire, but I know they really are that freaking idiotic.
“national security adviser John Bolton replied: I dont think climate change is a cause of international terrorism.”
