This is important

According to the Observer, the Pentagon thinks that climate change is perhaps an even greater national security concern than terrorism. That kinda throws a monkey wrench into Bush’s policies, doesn’t it? Especially since his administration has repeatedly denied the scientific validity of climate change.

Well, Bush, even your own hand-picked, mouth-breathing policy-type people recognize that a rapidly-changing climate will result in global war, as individuals, communities, and nations defend what precious little resources they have. Oh, and the insufferable English will be living in a Siberian landscape inside of 20 years. Fun times!

From the article (via BoingBoing):

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 findings will prove humiliating to the Bush administration, which has repeatedly denied that climate change even exists. Experts said that they will also make unsettling reading for a President who has insisted national defence is a priority.

    Thanks for posting that. Climate change is very real! It isn’t only Bush and his Administration who deny that climate change even exists it is otherwise good people who have been deceived by those who for their own personal gain don’t want the people to know the truth and the serious threat we are facing.

    I wish Climate change was a bigger issue in this election than it has been. This is one of the issues that is very important to me that I feel has not really been covered. Obama wants to build more nuclear power which I am against because how do we dispose of the waste. I do know that Robert Kennedy Jr who is a strong leader and has worked many years on this issue endorses Hilary Clinton.

    I want to hear more of what they plan to do to confront this ever growing problem of climate change and not just more political soundbites and spam. Obama and both Hilary, and McCain for the Republicans are very good at saying slogans and spin, but very bad about talking about substance.

    It isn’t until you read The Ecology of Commerce that you realize that the world is fucked up beyond belief, environmentally, and that our only solution would be…well, there is no solution.
