Pentagon Report: U.S. Military Considers Climate Change a 'Threat Multiplier' That Could Exacerbate Terrorism

A report released Monday indicates the Department of Defense has dramatically shifted its views towards climate change, and has already begun to treat the phenomenon as a significant threat to national security. Climate change, the Pentagon writes, requires immediate action on the part of the U.S. Military.

The report is a “roadmap” of the Department’s future needs and actions to effectively respond to climate change, including anticipating that climate change may require more frequent military intervention within the country to respond to natural disasters, as well as internationally to respond to “extremist ideologies” that may arise in regions where governments are destabilized due to climate-related stressors.

“The impacts of climate change may cause instability in other countries by impairing access to food and water, damaging infrastructure, spreading disease, uprooting and displacing large numbers of people, compelling mass migration, interrupting commercial activity, or restricting electricity availability,” the Pentagon writes. “These developments could undermine already-fragile governments that are unable to respond effectively or challenge currently-stable governments, as well as increasing competition and tension between countries vying for limited resources. These gaps in governance can create an avenue for extremist ideologies and conditions that foster terrorism.”

Prepare for "The War on Climate" soon folks!

U.S. Military Changes Climate.

1) "More frequent military intervention within the country to respond to natural disasters"

Perhaps the military can be our next volunteer fire fighters on all the next wildfires in California and other places - they should be the ones cleaning the side walks of snow in the winter, and taking in the homeless and giving them some of their chow - after all; they get paid pretty good, and unless they are off to some country in the Middle East; 'they're' just a further drain on the economy and a strain on tax payers.

2) "Respond internationally, to “extremist ideologies” that may arise in regions where governments are destabilized"

Isn't that what the "Western Military Industrial Complex" did in Libya? CANADA was very instrumental in "bombing them back into the stone age" - totally changed the climate of that country - talk about "extremist ideologies" - its called DEMOCRACY.

3) "Causing instability in other countries; impairing access to food and water, damaging infrastructure, spreading disease, uprooting and displacing large numbers of people, compelling mass migration, interrupting commercial activity, or restricting electricity availability,” the Pentagon writes."

This is probably the most honest statement to come out of the PENTAGON in a long time - and is something that WALL STREET is capable of doing - they should know - after all; these are some of the very results of what typically takes place (aftermath) when WALL STREET controlled MARKETS are made to collapse - Or when the very same Military Forces, such as the Western Coalitions, invade foreign countries to "democratize" them - and it also comes as a result of the UNITED STATES being the largest, incorporated arms dealers on this planet.

"When the drought and Great Depression hit in the early 1930s, the wheat market collapsed. Once the oceans of wheat, which replaced the sea of prairie grass that anchored the topsoil into place, dried up, the land was defenseless against the winds that buffeted the Plains" - http://www.history.com/news/10-things-you-may-not-know-about-the-du...

4) "Increasing competition and tension between countries vying for limited resources."

'They' must be referring to countries such as; the "UNITED KINGDOM"; the "UNITED STATES"; "CANADA"; CHINA; RUSSIA.

"As Cold War tensions heightened, weather control was seen by the United States as a potential weapon that could be even more devastating than nuclear warfare - In August of 1953 the United States formed the President’s Advisory Committee on Weather Control (CHANGING THE CLIMATE?) - http://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/weather-control-as-a-cold-war...
