Kerry Uses 9/11 To Push Climate Alarmism

When you utterly, positively, need an idiot to open his mouth. He has used the occasion of the day before 9/11 to deliver a climate change speech, linking the two in infamy

Senator John Kerry (D – Mass.), Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, today (September 10, 2009) delivered an address at George Washington University discussing the national and global security threats of climate change.

——————————————

Eight years ago today, on September 10th, 2001, America experienced one last moment of complacency before plunging into crisis. That day, the world was already being transformed, but too few knew or understood the new era we were about to enter. (snip)

In retrospect, it’s hard to fathom the level of collective naiveté, but that was America’s reality on “the day before.” In the weeks and months that followed, so many in rooms just like this one shared the same regret: Washington simply didn’t connect the dots in time.

Well, today Adil Najam, Michael Oppenheimer, and I, along with many others, are working to connect the dots on another emerging threat. Once again the world is being upended, and too few are taking action. The latest science warns that we have a ten-year window – at most – to prevent catastrophic, irreversible climate change. That means we are once again living in a “day before” moment that cries out for action.

This is not hype. I’m not trying to compare two challenges that, frankly, are incomparable to each other or anything else in our history. I’m not arguing that we view the wide-ranging threat of climate change entirely through the narrow lens of terrorism—though there are good reasons to think that climate change could worsen the terrorist threat.

He’s not trying to compare the two, but, he will anyhow

The real lesson of “the day before,” ladies and gentlemen, is that when we see a threat on the horizon, we can’t afford to wait until it arrives. Unless we take dramatic action – now— to restrain global climate change, we risk unleashing an aggressive new challenge to global stability, to the livelihoods of hundreds of millions, and yes, to America’s national security.

He continues on in that vein for many, many, many long, boring paragraphs. The real lesson to take away is that John Kerry is nuts, and, Liberals pitch fits when Conservatives discuss 9/11 and the need to be safe, but, when Democrats do it to push their retarded, sorry, reality challenged, agenda, it is A-OK.

    That line out of Shakespeare’s Henry II comes to mind. The one that starts out with, ” Will no one rid me of this meddlesome priest?”
