Time to emigrate to the moon?

The Guardian report:

 

 

Climate change over the next 20 years could result in a global catastrophe costing millions of lives in wars and natural disasters..

A secret report, suppressed by US defence chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world.

The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents.

‘Disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life,’ concludes the Pentagon analysis. ‘Once again, warfare would define human life.’

 

The report was commissioned by influential Pentagon defence adviser Andrew Marshall, who has held considerable sway on US military thinking over the past three decades. He was the man behind a sweeping recent review aimed at transforming the American military under Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

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.

An imminent scenario of catastrophic climate change is ‘plausible and would challenge United States national security in ways that should be considered immediately’, they conclude. As early as next year widespread flooding by a rise in sea levels will create major upheaval for millions.

 

Sir John Houghton, former chief executive of the Meteorological Office – and the first senior figure to liken the threat of climate change to that of terrorism – said: ‘If the Pentagon is sending out that sort of message, then this is an important document indeed.’

Bob Watson, chief scientist for the World Bank and former chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, added that the Pentagon’s dire warnings could no longer be ignored.

Already, according to Randall and Schwartz, the planet is carrying a higher population than it can sustain. By 2020 ‘catastrophic’ shortages of water and energy supply will become increasingly harder to overcome, plunging the planet into war. They warn that 8,200 years ago climatic conditions brought widespread crop failure, famine, disease and mass migration of populations that could soon be repeated.

Randall told The Observer that the potential ramifications of rapid climate change would create global chaos. ‘This is depressing stuff,’ he said. ‘It is a national security threat that is unique because there is no enemy to point your guns at and we have no control over the threat.’

Randall added that it was already possibly too late to prevent a disaster happening. ‘We don’t know exactly where we are in the process. It could start tomorrow and we would not know for another five years,’ he said.

‘The consequences for some nations of the climate change are unbelievable. It seems obvious that cutting the use of fossil fuels would be worthwhile.’

 

And the date of this article?

Oh well, it’s good to see that the Guardian does not get it right all the time!

    They could be right about the ‘catastrophic’ shortage of energy supply in the UK by 2020 being totally due to climate change (well due to politicians’ response to ‘climate change’). Those fraudulent climate “scientists” (we know who they are) will have a lot to answer for.

    Universal ridicule should be heaped upon the Doomsayers. Their failed predictions should be publicised far & wide.

    This posting sets the ball rolling.

    You’ve got to admire their persistence.

    Watching this scam now is like watching a headless chicken running around the farmyard. It still behaves in the same idiotic way. It flaps around and we wonder how it is possible, but we all know that its days are numbered and that sooner or later it will just flop over and die.

    Good day,

    Well the report is on the right track about eventual global unrests on account of shortages of water and food supplies, and lack of habitable land: All of which don’t appear to have anything to do with climate change / global warming. The REAL reason is the disgraceful ongoing overpopulation going amok on steroids, the holy grail of holy grails.

    What is scary is that people in positions of power and authority appear to believe in this climate change nonsense.Much of the Media must share a lot of the blame for refusing to expose the lies and misinformation that prop up this Green scam.

      Actually, it appears abundantly clear that those in positions of power and authority, aka politicians and the wealthy, have an ingrained “belief” in such nonsense primarily because such nonsense is just a pot of gold, ultimately sucked out from us the taxpayers.

    Climate change is a true fact and it will definitelly lead to some extreme weather phenomenons, especially in some parts of the world, but this idea with “5 years” is too much, I think that it’s not the time and the place to speak about a catastrophe. We still need to pay much more attention to the oceans, since they are the ones that influence climate in a major way, and oceans suffered many changes and human interventions, at least in the past 100 years…..

    Absolutely hilarious! Thanks! Made my day!

    It is hard to take this seriously. I tried. Some thoughts:

    Are they predicting that catastrophic climate change causes a nuclear war? Within five years? The odds of that are like those of a major asteroid impact or a “nearby” supernova, both of which would induce (cold) catastrophic climate change and make nuclear war superfluous. Marginally possible but not predictable. It is more likely that colder climate causes food shortages than warmer, since cold reduces growing areas rather than just moving them.

    Or are they predicting that an inevitable (unplanned) nuclear war causes catastrophic climate change? That is more plausible considering current events, but not something worth betting on, and again the climate change would be colder.

    Alternatively perhaps they are planning a nuclear war to reduce the population and this climate change alarm is way to reduce the survival infrastructure while sending a message to various elites that it’s time to stock their bunkers? That might justify some alarm. Events in Ukraine might lend some credence, as slaughtering ethnic Russian civilians on the country’s border can lead to blowback. Russia is not stupid though. At best an outside chance.

    An interesting exercise but I still fail to take it seriously.
