National Geographic Warns Global Warming Leads to Increased Violence... Possibly Even 'Genocide'
Newsbusters ^ | 03/26/10 | Anthony Kang

Posted on 03/26/2010 8:42:21 AM PDT by 198ml

On March 24, Ker Than argued in National Geographic that "Global warming could make the world a more violent place, because higher temperatures increase human aggression and create volatile situations."

Reporting on the findings of a new study released last week, Than repeated the study authors' estimate of increase in violence as temperatures climb: "[I]f the average temperature in the U.S. increases by 8 degrees Fahrenheit, the country's murder and assault rate will jump by about a hundred thousand cases a year."

Than also used temperature projections from the UN's IPCC, which has recently been forced to admit "flaws" in its reports since the ClimateGate scandal broke in November 2009.

"A 2007 report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change projected that global surface temperatures could rise by 2 to 11.5 degrees Fahrenheit" by 2100, he wrote without mentioning any of the criticisms of the IPCC or their own admission of problematic data.

These "studies" always start with their unquestioned assumption that global is a real threat and they build their scare stories from that point on.

"Environmentalism is instinctively and relentlessly illiberal, and it is doing more to inculcate people with fear, self-loathing and a religious-style sense of meekness than any piece of anti-terror legislation ever could. If you believe in freedom, you must reject it."

Well, yes, it's true.

When it's hot, sometimes I have an ice cold beer.

And sometimes I kill an entire race of people.

I could go either way...

Well that makes perfect sense. This freezing winter will probably result in another baby boom to compensate for the genocidal violence.

IMHO I think their IPCC brains have definitely overheated and will soon explode - so global warming is actually a good thing.

Yes it does. The very first statist greenie weenies were the NAZIs and look what happened ...

The NAZIs also were among the first with free national health care.

You get the feeling statists and their policies leads to horror and ruin?

Boy I am glad I don’t live in the Caribbean with all its death rate from violence, i.e. Grand Cayman, St. Lucia, etc. They must have the most violence in the Americas, (except for Detroit or Philadelphia). And just think of poor Natalie Holloway. She should have spent spring break in Barrow, Alaska, and not close to the Equator.

Even if you believe every single claim about global warming happening (it's not, the Earth has been cooling for ten years) and being man-made (doubtful given the limited role CO2 plays in the process, and the limited fraction of CO2 caused by humans), your crap detector should still go off when they start talking about events in the year 2100.

Does anyone believe that the burning of fossil fuels will still be a major component of our energy supply in 2100? Surely we will have figured out fusion long before then.

Thank goodness that it is a fraud then!

Well the enviroNazi, zero population growth atheists should be ecstatic about this.

National Geographic pushes the global warming crapola every chance they get. If they can fit it into a program they will. Brainwashing of the masses...

Which is why I cancelled my subscription to the magazine six years ago. I still get offers in the mail from them for a super discounted subscription $11 a year. I won't bite.

"NG...pushes global warming"

The reason I quit subscribing more than twenty years ago. Couldn't read an issue without reading about some imminent, ecological disaster that was about to befall us. Leftists took over the mag a long time ago.

"[I]f the average temperature in the U.S. increases by 8 degrees Fahrenheit, the country's murder and assault rate will jump by about a hundred thousand cases a year."

But we're talking about a predicted degree and a half.

Over a century.

Or, it might go down a degree and a half. Its a cycle.

What clued it for me was when NASA reported that the Martian ice caps had been receding every year for 6 years. It occurred to me that something was going on that had nothing to do with the Bush-Cheney cabal and their evil oil buddies.

Then they reported that Pluto was warming, even though it was moving away from the sun and ought to be cooling. Then they reported that the moons around Saturn were warming. And so on.

Then I noticed that they would attack any scientist who proposed that there might be a correlation between variations in solar output and planetary temperatures, not because it wasn't true, but they said because it would distract us from making the necessary political changes.

Bingo, I said.

Yes, but it isn't mindless violence. It has a useful purpose, one that is long over due.

Exactly. It’s tough to bust a guy in the chops when it’s so cold you can’t unwrap your arms from around your torso, and you can’t quit jumping up and down.

Right up to the point that the socialist peons in Europe, Russia and China are starving because shortened growing seasons have crippled the great northern bread baskets.

Thankfully, Canadians are few in number because the Canucks have proven themselves in battle.

Mixing up cause and effect. Obviously discharging firearms, the friction of knives and the spilling of warm blood creates global warming. The spilled blood is a two-fer since it also increases relative humidity.

I concur. Warmer weather equals easier-to-get-at resources and more food. If we had enough of all of that to go around, perhaps there would be world peace if not for religious fanatics.
