Standard & Poor's Ratings Services (S&P) warned on Thursday that climate change will force down the credit ratings of countries throughout the world. Will this be the straw that breaks the climate change-deniers' backs?
"Climate change is likely to be one of the global mega-trends impacting sovereign creditworthiness, in most cases negatively," S&P notes, adding "Assuming that extreme weather events are on the rise in terms of frequency and destruction, ..
The S&P report closely follows one published by the CNA Corporation Military Advisory Board on Tuesday, which found climate change to be a risk to national security. The study was penned by members of a military research organization, including many former military officials, ... In an introductory note, the Military Advisory Board wrote that they hope the report won't be judged on partisan grounds:
We are dismayed that discussions of climate change have become so polarizing and have receded from the arena of informed public discourse and debate. Political posturing and budgetary woes cannot be allowed to inhibit discussion and debate over what so many believe to be a salient national security concern for our nation. Each citizen must ask what he or she can do individually to mitigate climate change, and collectively what his or her local, state, and national leaders are doing to ensure that the world is sustained for future generations... Time and tide wait for no one.
According to the New York Times, U.S. leaders who don't dispute climate change as a man-made phenomena recognized the importance of the report. But it appeared to do nothing to budge climate change deniers. Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma dismissed the report because "there is no one in more pursuit of publicity than a retired military officer," ..

“Assuming that extreme weather events are on the rise in terms of frequency and destruction, .. “
which there is zero evidence of either greater frequency or greater severity when measured in the longest cycles of weather events
has anyone ever drilled al gore’s head for ice core samples?
If you assume climate change is happening and the cause is man made, then you could conclude that it is a national security risk.
but with all logic, if you start with a faulty assumption, you end up with an invalid conclusion.
Additionally, if you assume the only recouse is to go 100% green energy, then you could conclude that path is a national security risk also.
But the reality is, if you assume the US govt. does nothing about the welfare state, you must conclude a financial disaster will occur which is a national security risk.
I wish S and P and the US military would publish that result which almost a mathematical certainty while the global warming premise is not a certainty.
Well so far, so good:
Hmmm, doesn’t mention water vapor, which has far more effect.
Michael Savage had a great idea last week. He said that once all this climate hysteria settles down and the scam is fully exposed for what it is, that all the instigators who foisted this crap on us should be put in front of People’s Tribunals and when found guilty thrown into special “Climate Prisons”.
Well, if it’s throughout the world — then who cares?
And that includes these assholes at Standard & Poor’s who fancy themselves as scientists and not the worm-like bean counters they really are.
The U.S. Credit Rating is going to now be controlled by Algore’s hoax and scam? Screw Standard and Poor’s. Who needs ‘em. This is fraud and extortion. Somebody at Standard and Poor’s needs to go to jail.
My thinking has it that “Global Warming” is a colossal fraud.
The powers that be are determined to push their agenda upon us no matter what it takes.
I will again state that to free ourselves from the current and coming oppression will take nothing less than a full blown civil war, and perhaps another world war.
Savage had another good one: if the oceans are rising and the coasts will be flooded, ask a lib if they’ll sell their beach-front property to you for cheap.
NOT A CHANCE!
