#1 "The area of climate change has a dramatic impact on national security," Panetta told the Environmental Defense Fund last night. "Rising sea levels, severe droughts, the melting of the polar caps, the more frequent and devastating natural disasters all raise demand for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief."
Ah, the Environmental Defense Fund...
I mean, what's he gonna say? You people are full of shit? It's an election year. And they probably paid for dinner...

#2 Fear of global warming could easily cause the reallocation of funds that are needed for defense. Thus it is a national security threat.

#3 A GWCC Defense Fund requires some kind of Global Tax or Global Minimum Tax, hence ...
* YOUTUBE > WHITE HOUSE ADVISOR: WE NEED A GLOBAL MINIMUM TAX.
Lest we fergit, as per the SIRIUS EVENT, such was the level of international Govt-Pert disageement on the meaning of the event that the US desired to change the the last two letters "-US" in the SIRIUS acronym from "U-tra S-trong" to over the US".
OVER THE US AND ONLY THE US.

#4 So a discredited theory has been elevated to a "National Threat"? Can we hang these fuckers for treason now?

#5 It's not discredited, it's pining for the fjords.

If anybody but Obummer Mitt wins in November, getting rid of the current administration will be a lot like this.

#7 One would hope that the left would have quit taking massive doses of LSD after the 70s. Evidence like this suggests otherwise.

#8 They are mess-in with our weather now. So they can deflect any blame for their errors. Next I guess he will address the alien infiltrations.
I wondered where O got them large ears.

#10 Panetta is an absolute TOOL! If he wants to talk about a "national security threat" let him tell us what he was told by the Chief of Station (COS) in Mexico City about Operation Fast and Furious during his time at the CIA.

#12 Gorb, the least they could do is provide a courtisy flush now, but perhaps the stench is part of the plan.

#14 BP, I have heard this stuff since the early sixties. I don't say I believe it. The media is of little help. I have known very educated people research this stuff attending world seminars and they have no doubts. So I go my way and ponder at most.

#15 you can tell, Leon's concerned about Greenhouse gases by the way he flew back to California every weekend

#16 You see?
I was talking to some ex mil people and I assured them that you, Panetta, are not a very smart man.
Now I may say you are a very, very stupid 8th grader that does not deserve a job as a janitor.
I cannot wait until you no longer have any contact with our Soldiers - They deserve so much better.

#17 if someone can explain how we got out of the Little Ice Age before the combustible engine, then i'll give it some thought.

#18 So, if he said that global warming was not a national security threat would he still be secretary of defense?

#19 Maybe he's trying to go to war against Gerbil Worming?
Posted by gorb 2012-05-04 14:35||
#20 I wouldn't mess with gerbils -- they're tough little creatures, prone to dying in places where even their very skeletons will one day cause problems. Mr. Wife once went through a factory start-up in Egypt...

#21 Panetta opened his mouth about GW and removed all doubt his elevator being able to go to the top floor.
