In it’s latest Quadrennial Defense Review the Pentagon has said that climate change and ’erratic’ climate will cause increased terrorist activity.
The four yearly reports highlight threats that face civilization and this years homed in on climate change causing an increase in terrorism.
It also mentioned that rises in sea levels and other issues associated with a warming planet will lead to food scarcity and higher food prices as well as contestation and conflict over water.
It is this competition that they feel will cause an increase in terrorist incidents.
The 64 page report focuses on the impacts, but mentions next to nothing about the solutions that might alleviate such problems.
According to RT the report states:
“The impacts of climate change may increase the frequency, scale, and complexity of future missions, including defense support to civil authorities, while at the same time undermining the capacity of our domestic installations to support training activities,”
“Climate change poses another significant challenge for the United States and the world at large. As greenhouse gas emissions increase, sea levels are rising, average global temperatures are increasing, and severe weather patterns are accelerating.”
A warming planet will likely “exacerbate water scarcity and lead to sharp increases in food costs,” the report details, leading to devastated infrastructure and living conditions, especially in poorer regions of the world.
In addition, this fierce “resource competition” will only push the likelihood of additional terror threats, the QDR states.
“The pressures caused by climate change will influence resource competition while placing additional burdens on economies, societies, and governance institutions around the world,” the report continues.
“These effects are threat multipliers that will aggravate stressors abroad such as poverty, environmental degradation, political instability, and social tensions – conditions that can enable terrorist activity and other forms of violence.”
As I have said on numerous occasions climate change exists, it has always existed, and it always will exist. The government seems to ignore the fact that the climate has been warmer than this in the past,long before mankind had moved out of caves let alone invented the internal combustion engine.
It’s time to stop this idiocy. The government is referring to global warming, but they can’t call it global warming anymore because quite simply, at this point, the planet isn’t warming. They are using global warming as an excuse to levy ‘green’ taxes, to raise money for a government that can’t afford to pay down it’s debt let alone pay to find ways to solve the food shortage problems that we all know are going to occur.
The government knows that food and in some areas water is going to be in short supply and that the food that is available is going to be wildly expensive. They are using climate change as a whipping boy, a reason they can tout in public to cover up their lack of investment in their own country.
It is this lack of investment that allowed Monsanto to walk in and adulterate our food supply. The government should have been investing in agriculture, ensuring that the population has food security but instead they got into bed with Monsanto, and that will cost us all dearly.
The government should have been looking at vital infrastructure, at reservoirs and water storage facilities but instead they spent millions on pointless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
This is what all the current ‘control’ issues are about ladies and gentlemen.
They need to have gun control in place BEFORE these shortages come to pass.
They need to have information about our daily lives so they know where the ‘troublemakers’ are
The government knows it has failed and from this point all it can do is look at how to control the situation rather than how it can fix it, and it needs to gain that control before the SHTF.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
