Your Fault: Climate Crisis Could Be Catastrophic National Security Threat

Climate change could be a ‘catastrophic’ national security threat, report warns

Climate change could turn into a “catastrophic” threat to national and global security in the coming decades, warns a new report released Monday.

“Even at scenarios of low warming, each region of the world will face severe risks to national and global security in the next three decades,” the report states. “Higher levels of warming will pose catastrophic, and likely irreversible, global security risks over the course of the 21st century.”

The report, titled “A Security Threat Assessment of Global Climate Change: How Likely Warming Scenarios Indicate a Catastrophic Security Future” was released Monday by the Center for Climate and Security, a non-partisan security policy institute.

Non-partisan. Right.

The report identifies major threats, including heightened social and political instability and risks to U.S. military missions and infrastructure, as well as security institutions across all regions of the world.

Remember all the world wars when CO2 was below the safe level of 350ppm?

So far, the globe has warmed about 2 degrees Fahrenheit since pre-industrial times, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said.

In North America, under a low-warming scenario (1.8 to 3.6 degrees by 2050), the region “will experience more intense, extreme events like storms and wildfires, with significant impacts on life, property, security infrastructure and democratic institutions,” the report said.

So, “about 2F” since 1850 (actually closer to 1.5), and they’re prognosticating double that in 30 years, as a low-warming scenario? Wouldn’t it be fun to have a time machine to jump ahead and see how badly the Warmist prognostications failed?

“Our panel’s analysis shows that no region of the world will be left unaffected, and climate impacts will interact in dangerous ways in even near-term, lower levels of warming,” Goodman said.

Climatic changes have always created issues and benefits. No reason to assign witchcraft, ie, fossil fuels, to it.

In addition to phasing out fossil fuels, the report said “the world must also ‘climate-proof’ environments, infrastructure, institutions and systems on which human security depends.” And in the U.S., “we call for renewed efforts to prioritize, communicate and respond to climate security threats.”

Perhaps all the retired military folks, who primarily vote Democrat, on the board of this organization can explain exactly how our military is supposed to operate without fossil fuels. Same with the Coast Guard, police, fire, ambulances, hospitals, rescue personnel, etc. And have the people on the board given up their own use of fossil fuels?

    No time machine needed. Most of us can already remember the last time their prognostications failed.

    They are reporting that the skies over China are so clear now that they can see the stars at night for the first time in 30 years.

    CHINA HAS SAVED US!!!

      I have always wondered why these AGW bullies don’t go protest in China. Have some real guts like the people of Hong Kong are or were doing. But of course, we know why. Their goal is to intimidate democratically elected governments for some bizarre reason.

      They have a thousand billionaires who could solve AGW overnight. Those billionaires give lip service to the movement but they all got rich off of fossil fuels or the things they gave them.

      Jeff Bezos could give 200 billion himself. Bill Gates 150 billion. Warren Buffet could probably eliminate the national Debt. Do you think they will? Nope. Yet they all give money to snowflakes to protest the western governments, most of whom are already trying to change to green energy.

      Revolution is in the air, I think. It’s not really about AGW. It’s about crashing the world and changing the world in order to a hardcore hybrid communist society in which everyone has the same. Unfortunately in their minds, they don’t realize that will never happen except in a computer game.

        You’re suggesting that US citizens go to China to protest AGW?

        You think real American billionaires could solve global warming overnight? How? Our president, who may be a billionaire, could start the process of addressing global warming but by the power of his office, not his millions.

        It’s a fairly simple premise. To address global warming we need to start reducing CO2 emissions from burning fossil fuels.

        BTW, the national debt is well over $23 TRILLION (1000 times more than Buffet has) and increasing $1 TRILLION a year now with no end in sight. Recall that a trillion is 1000 billion! The GOP sees the only hope for “starving the beast” is more tax cuts for the wealthy and slashing the “communist welfare state”, i.e., Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid (well over 50% of our annual outlays).

        The GOP consistently supports a system that allocates more material resources to the wealthy using the working classes as a source of cheap labor. It has always been thus. And the Democratic Party is only slightly better. Plutocrats all, and a plutocracy forever – strangling the working classes one policy at a time.

        The yearly deficit is $1 TRILLION, more than Gates, Bezos and Buffet combined.

          Ah, yes, one of those problems only government can solve.

          How did we ever get along without Socialism?

          Tax cuts help everybody and increase revenue (I know I’ve said this before).

          As for slashing the “communist welfare state”, you want the debt gone? That’s the way you do it and, considering how well the Commies are handling their latest medical disaster, sounds like a win-win.

          Lessee now, who’s the party of slavery?

          Lessee now, who’s the party of the welfare plantation?

          Ah, yes, workers of the world, unite. You have nothing to lose but your brains.

          Given us by all the people who want to be perpetually re-elected and the people who know better than us how we should live.
