The changing global climate will pose profound strategic challenges to the United States in coming decades, raising the prospect of military intervention to deal with the effects of violent storms, drought, mass migration and pandemics, military and intelligence analysts say.But maybe they're just answering the questions posted to it by the deluded-by-Al Gore Obama administration. But if that's the case, then how do you explain this from later in the same article?
Such climate-induced crises could topple governments, feed terrorist movements or destabilize entire regions, say the analysts, experts at the Pentagon and intelligence agencies who for the first time are taking a serious look at the national security implications of climate change.
The National Intelligence Council, which produces government-wide intelligence analyses, finished the first assessment of the national security implications of climate change just last year.But The Tribune Review editorial board (and many others living in Wingnuttia) say it's all a hoax. If that's the case then why did the Bush Defense Department waste all that money (money it should have been using to fight the war on the evil-doing terrrists) on the report?
It concluded that climate change by itself would have significant geopolitical impacts around the world and would contribute to a host of problems, including poverty, environmental degradation and the weakening of national governments.[emphasis added]
Waiting for an answer, wingnuts.
