Massive crop devastation, melting glaciers, water shortages, millions of displaced people — all of these will drag the US military into conflict if global climate change goes unchecked, a Senate panel was warned today.
Does the above quote sound like fear mongering to anybody else besides me? Our government seems to be preparing us for the idea that we will have to go to war (again/still) if we don’t pass their wasteful, socialistic legislation. What better way to gain power in a nation than to ramp up people’s fears of a global catastrophe?
What’s also interesting is the lack of scientific tests confirming this theory. Yes, there was the obligatory “scientists agree,” but this is basically a subjective poll of scientists’ opinions, not an actual test. In the brave new world in which we live all that apparently matters is that everybody agrees we need to increase government control over energy policy, the automotive industry, and whatever else we’ve forgotten to put the government in charge of already.
This report from Political Intelligence is both disturbing and insightful, reflecting the same old strategy of fear mongering we’ve had for years — only this time with a big Green Smiley Face stamped on top of it.Published in
