Global warming is a hoax, created by the “looney left,” right?…er… Correct? So, I guess now you can add the Pentagon to the list of “wackos” that say global warming is real.
A secret report, suppressed by US defence chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world.
The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents.
Climate change ‘should be elevated beyond a scientific debate to a US national security concern’, say the authors, Peter Schwartz, CIA consultant and former head of planning at Royal Dutch/Shell Group, and Doug Randall of the California-based Global Business Network.
It is not being argued in this document that this is something to think about, or an eventual problem, it is saying that this is a problem now and could be catostrophic within 20 years.Â Now, I know a vast majority of readers (I’d at least 2 out of the 3), have small children.Â Think about it, your son or daughter (or both) will be in their 20’s (or maybe thirties).Â This is something that is having and will continue to have a direct effect on the lives of your kids.
The days of laughing off this issue as something brought on by Wheatgrass drinking, home-made hemp clothes wearing flower children (not that there is anything wrong with that) are over.Â This isn’t a political issue, though some in their selfishness would like to make it one, for their own profit and gains.Â This isn’t even an issue that can simply be taken care of any longer simply by people doing the right things (although, recycling, using earth friendly products and more are still wise choices).Â It is something that needs to be changed on a global scale and needs to change immediately. This can’t be talked away with the oil companies trying to bribe scientist to author papers that say it doesn’t exist.Â I mean, when the time has come that even Wal-Mart is begging the Administration to do something on Global Warming, we have obviously reached a serious tipping point.
But even if the threat isn’t quite as imminent or horrific a scale as these projections claim, what is the problem with cleaning up our air, our water, our environment?Â People who are against fixing this problem are also (often) the same people that want to return to the “good old days” (I’ll save that issue for another post).Â Well in the good old days, we had clean air, and clean water.Â We washed dishes, and not everything was disaposable and plastic.Â Want to go back?Â Fine.Â But we have to do something about all this pollution to get back to that.
Want to continue to be pigheaded?Â You have every right to do so.Â But, if you don’t want to think about it for yourself.Â Think about the effects it may have on your kids, this isn’t someday, this is something that effects them.Â Directly.Â I am sure you have insticts to protect your children.Â They need help and protection from this as well, now when they are unable to do or change this for themselves.
