An evaluation of the actual danger posed by the Islamic State is a subject for a later time, but at least right now, the group – while it is vicious and barbaric and wants to hurt us – has limited capability to make that happen on American soil.
Yet, climate change already has invaded the homeland, reducing to ruins the homes of thousands of Americans, turning them into refugees of a sort. In his U.N. speech, Obama listed just a few of the terrors we already have experienced: “Along our eastern coast, the city of Miami now floods at high tide. In our west, wildfire season now stretches most of the year. In our heartland, farms have been parched by the worst drought in generations, and drenched by the wettest spring in our history. A hurricane left parts of this great city (New York) dark and underwater.”
There was absolutely no weather, no hurricanes, no tornadoes, no floods and droughts, no blizzards, nothing, prior to the invention of the fossil fueled vehicle, ya know! BTW, Obama performed a act of un-science by terming Sandy a hurricane at landfall. It wasn’t. In fact, what made Sandy so bad was a cold front that interacted with the storm.
Earth’s rising temperature represents a greater menace than any terrorist “sleeper cell.”
Not sure about you, but a 1.4F increase in global temperatures in the last 160 years has me terrified. I’m writing this from inside my safety fort with a few stuffed animals and some hot cocoa, wearing onesies, just like your Typical Warmist.
Extreme weather events are not the only danger: As food and water shortages increase and already vulnerable people suffer dislocation and loss, the stability of governments and even civil societies are jeopardized.
If you’ll check your pre-Common Core history books, you’ll see that the weather of the Earth was really stable during the 4.5 billion years preceding the Industrial Revolution. Climate Change, ie, cool periods, didn’t help in bringing down civilizations like the Roman Empire and Mayans.
Still, while most Americans worry more about terrorism than the environment, activists sense a change. You wouldn’t know it from watching mainstream media, but the message about the need for action is getting through to more ordinary Americans than in the past: The estimated 300,000 to 400,000 people who participated in the largest “climate justice” march in history on Sept. 21 aren’t putting away their signs and going home for good. The numbers of people engaging in civil disobedience is expanding. A movement to persuade institutions to divest from fossil fuels is still tiny, but growing.
They want Other People to divest from fossil fuels, yet, they themselves used vast amounts to travel to NYC (and other cities) to protest. Go figure.
We should do what we can to support them: In the not-so-long term, it won’t matter what harm the Islamic State can or can’t do if a rising planet temperature has the effect most scientists predict: global chaos.
