    Here's a 34 second movie for you. It's called " dum dum gos to
    washington. It stars barbara boxer, and she doesn't have to do
    anything but " act naturally" as Buck would say.

    Barbara Boxer has to be one of the dumbest creatures on the surface of our
    planet. I can't believe she took the time to put this ridiculous
    34 seconds into the congressional record.



    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJJB7zFsFFE&feature=player_embedded]YouTube - Boxer: Greatest national security threat is carbon dioxide[/ame]





    carbon will be a national security problem in years to come?


    doesn't this progressive brain trust know that all life on earth is carbon based.

    Can't you just see a veteran coming home from afghanistan, having been
    shot at for months and calling his senator?

    " Senator- you have to do something about carbon- in 20 years it will be the
    cause of our troops being sent into harms way? It won't be because we need oil.
    It won't be because the military complex needs to stay in business.

    It will be that damn carbon. Please regulate everything that contains carbon.


    What a piece of ignorant slime this woman is in our government.

    the voters who sent her to us should

    The affects of an adrupt climate change will involve enormous security problems for this nation, and every other nation on the globe.

    http://www.envirosecurity.org/news/articles/environmentalSecurity.pdf

    Security policies must be based upon strategic foresight,
    of knowing where vulnerable systems and
    regions exist before catastrophic changes occur in
    the environment, and how to mitigate or avoid the
    worst consequences. This study reviews the need
    for new security definitions in regard to environmental
    security, specifically the role of vulnerability and
    risk in anticipating critical environmental changes.
    In assessing the potential role of new, global intelligence
    systems, the potential risks and impacts of
    abrupt climate change in the Arctic are examined
    as illustrative. In contrast to many past approaches
    to climate change as an external force acting upon
    state security, we emphasize that greater integration
    of energy, environmental, economic, social and political
    systems are necessary. Rather than attempting
    to falsify or substantiate causal relationships between
    climate change and one measure of insecurity
    (eg violent conflict), risk assessment techniques can
    be employed to help estimate potential areas of
    insecurity in terms of plausible risk and severity of
    consequences. It is this vulnerability foresight that
    may prove of use to policymakers concerned about
    abrupt climate change and security issues.

    Abrupt Climate Change: 'Imagine the Unthinkable'

    Printer Friendly Version E-Mail This Article
    Published on Thursday, April 1, 2004 by the San Francisco Chronicle
    'Imagine the Unthinkable'
    by Ruth Rosen

    THE PENTAGON has warned that global warming is a serious threat to our country's national security.

    No, this is not an April Fool's Day joke, though it may seem like one.

    Dryly entitled "An Abrupt Climate Change Scenario and Its Implications for U.S. National Security" (October 2003), the Pentagon report first appeared in the British press, Fortune magazine, a small number of American newspapers and then began circulating on the Internet.

    Andrew Marshall, a highly respected 82-year-old defense adviser in the Department of Defense, commissioned the Pentagon study. He also led the sweeping review of the military ordered by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and runs a little known Pentagon think tank, the Office of Net Assessment, which has evaluated risks to national security for four presidents.

    The authors of the study -- Peter Schwartz, a CIA consultant, and Doug Randall of the Global Business Network in California, are tough-minded analysts, not your stereotypical tree-hugging environmentalists.

    Their report, however, reads like the script for a horror flick. "The purpose of this report," they begin, "is to imagine the unthinkable." To accomplish this goal, they "interviewed leading climate-change scientists."

    Extrapolating from the present, they predict that dramatic climate changes may lead to rising seas, mega-droughts and famine within 20 years. Some European coastal cities, such as The Hague, could sink under the ocean, Britain could be plunged into a semi-Siberian climate, Bangladesh could become uninhabitable and drought could destroy the American breadbasket.

    California would be especially hard hit. "Failures of the delta-island levees in the Sacramento River region in the Central Valley of California" could create an inland sea that would "disrupt the aqueduct system that transports water from Northern to Southern California because saltwater can no longer be kept out of the area during the dry season . . ."

    In response to such catastrophic changes, the authors argue, some regions or countries will defend dwindling supplies of water, food and energy with all kinds of military strategies, including nuclear weapons. Widespread rioting and regional conflict could even push some areas of the planet to the edge of anarchy.

    Global warming, they conclude, must "therefore be viewed as a serious threat to global stability and should be elevated beyond a scientific debate to a U.S. national security concern."

    Del, old boy, I hope you and the rest of the denialists are correct. However, thus far, reality is not shaping up that way.

    i've never denied that the earth may be getting warmer, just that what you and your fellow cultists espouse as *settled acience* is a crock of shit as it isn't settled and it's barely science.

    i realized that you've invested your whole self in this and now you're like a moonie; too embarrassed to admit you're wrong and too arrogant to at least STFU and learn something. fortunately, it's not my problem so rock on with your bad self. :rofl:

    True, but irrelevant to the discussion.

    old fraud you crack me up. Every piece of evidence you have ever presented has been proven false and yet you soldier on peddling the same old horse poop. Good for you!
    Your continued faith in AGW is simply amazing.
