EXTRA! EXTRA! PENTAGON IN ON 'CRAZY' ENVIRO-CONSPIRACY!

Exciting news for all you conspiracy theorists out there: The Guardian Observer released an article on February 22, 2004 claiming that the US Pentagon's Andrew Marshall commissioned a study by NGO Environmental Media Services into the effects of global climate change. What they found--and later tried to cover up--is devastating.

The article says that 'Disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life,' concludes the Pentagon analysis. 'Once again, warfare would define human life' and also claims the threat of global destruction vastly overshadows that of terrorism. The Observer not-so -stealthily insinuates that the Bush Administration is covering up the report because of their adminate stance that climate change is not a threat and never will be.

Climate change 'should be elevated beyond a scientific debate to a US national security concern', say the authors, Peter Schwartz, CIA consultant and former head of planning at Royal Dutch/Shell Group, and Doug Randall of the California-based Global Business Network. Ahh, so Mr President, not only would this prove to the world that your perspective on environment issues is wrong, but it would also prove that the intelligence community does do some beneficial, good, solid work and you just don't listen. I can understand, George--you don't want to ruin your image. But if you really cared about America (not to mention people in other nations, which you've "shown" us you do, "Operation Iraqi Freedom"), you'd let us know when something big goes down, right? How's this for big: "As early as next year widespread flooding by a rise in sea levels will create major upheaval for millions."

There's really no point in going on much further; I'd just be repeating the article. Every sentence is critical and shocking. Take a look, if you dare.

Now the Pentagon tells Bush: climate change will destroy us

It seems nearly unbelievable that ppl like him (and a lot of blind followers) deny what several decades of scientific evidence has proven again and again. From acid rain in the European Alpes, to hugely increased UV radiations hitting Australia because it's got a big ozone layer hole above it, to the measured 3mmm per year level increase of seas an oceans, in good part due to the also very measurable melting of the polar caps. The Mont-Blanc glacier has shrunk by over 100 meters in the last 2 decades: the bottom of it was only a few meters away from where a village has been around for centuries, and the ppl now have a 100m wide glacier-free new natural reserve at no extra cost.

It's important to remember our choices on these issues effect future generations and it no doubt is a human rights issue because poor countries are unable to prepare themselves against natural disasters.

KOBE, Japan Jan 19, 2005 The U.S. delegation to a global conference on disasters wants to purge a U.N. action plan of its references to climate change as a potential cause of future natural calamities.

The U.S. stand reflects the opposition of George Bush's administration to treating global warming as a priority problem.

"I hope there will be a global recognition of climate change causing more natural disasters," said Jan Egeland, U.N. undersecretary-general for humanitarian affairs.

Does global warming cause extreme weather? This question is being debated today and as we have seen from the recent earthquake tsunami which has caused the deaths of over 220,000 people so far an issue every bit as important as terrorism.

This is far from a conspiracy theory as many would like to make it and twisting this issue into one is dangerous. Perhaps Mr. Bush should remember his children and their children will continue to live on this planet long after he is gone.
