Gwynne Dyer is well-known around the world as a military-political analyst, who publishes columns in newspapers in many different countries. He interviewed the military on their view of climate change. He asserts that, even under Bush, the Pentagon and British military have been planning for it... http://www.channels.com/episodes/show/2 … wynne-Dyer
This is totally accurate. The Pentagon issued a report that called abrupt climate change a worse threat to U.S. national security than terrorism. Search hub pages for the article "abrupt climate change worse than terrorism".
No one of any intellect believes in climate change, not even the United Nations.
Was it not just a few weeks back that a top UN official admitted it is all about redistribution of global wealth. Ha. Anyone of a medium intellect figured that out long ago, a farce of the highest order.
And that is not to say that humans are not impacting the climate, just that the UN could give a good shit (Obama made that an OK word!) about climate change, they are about global governance and redistribution of wealth, and climate change is so very handy to accomplish their goals. How stupid and gullible are their followers???
"No one of any intellect believes in climate change, not even the United Nations."
Your information on climate change must be received only through powerful, selective filters. The great majority of climate scientists believe there is cause for concern.
These guys no doubt have scenarios for everything. I, for one, am fine with that.
Your comment may miss the point. Read the Pentagon 2003 Report on Abrupt Climate Change and then you can decide for yourself whether the Pentagon can be believed on this point. For my part, I totally believe that we are headed for a climate change disaster caused by human activities. Ninety-eight percent of climate scientists believe that, as well as the various National Academies of Science and scientific organizations representing tens of millions of scientists. The question is not whether a catastrophe is looming--it has already started occurring--the question is how soon will it become so scary that even the deniers funded by Exxon-Mobil and Koch Industries will have to admit that we've pushed the atmosphere and the oceans over the limit.
"how soon will it become so scary that even the deniers funded by Exxon-Mobil and Koch Industries will have to admit that we've pushed the atmosphere and the oceans over the limit."
Exactly. Problem is, we just elected the deniers to be the new leaders of the House.....they will head the committes that decide policy on these things.
It will be more denial, and more allowing big oil to pollute to their heart's content.
I wonder if the Earth can take 2 years of Koch-bought gvt?
For those that are interested in lovemychris' comments on Exxon-Mobil's successful 10-year-plus funding of the climate change disinformation attack on science, the American public, government officials and the media, go to the Union of Concerned Scientists' website and download the frightening 50-some-odd page report. It's scary. Lovemychris, you ask if the Earth can take two more years of the assault on the atmosphere. Who knows? It may already too late to stop the global train wreck that will bring mass famine, catastrophic sea rise, and extreme weather/climate catastrophes of unimaginable proportions.
You are right. I've got Hubs on Gwynn Dyer's "Climate Wars," on the climate disinformation campaign as exposed by James Hoggan in "Climate Coverup," and on several of the seminal figures in the development of the theory of CO2 and climate (such as John Tyndall, for instance.)
The current situation is rather discouraging, to say the least. I'm sure the truth will win out, but the scary thing about climate change is that you do the damage long before the consequences become evident. Some things are, as John said, starting to show up; we've had a number of serious weather disasters this year that, at the very least, are good previews of the future if business as usual continues.
But we haven't smartened up too much yet.
The Kyoto Protocol came into force on February 16, 2005, seven years after it was signed in 1997. The requirement that atleast 55 countries accounting for 55% of global green house emissions must ratify it caused this delay. United States, which contributes nearly 36% of emissions did not ratify it. Russia, with 17.4% of emissions, took the lead and signed it in 2005 paving the way for coming into official force of the protocol. E.U. and Japan ratified it in 2002. Japan has pledged to cut the emissions by 6%....

I came upon this news that a study showed majority of the Americans do not believe humans caused global warming / climate change. Any idea if this is true? What about the rest of the world, what do we believe?This is the website - http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2 … -activity.

Why do you not believe in Global Warming/Climate Change?I have no doubt our earth is warming at an alarming rate. One of the reasons I think this is because of the photo I included with the question. Otzi--the Iceman--was frozen over 5000 years ago and has remained that way through all sorts of...
