AP: Senior U.S. officials warned Wednesday that climate change is an increasing threat to national security, a message at odds with a broader Trump administration effort to downplay the threat from global warming. Military and intelligence officials outlined a range of long-term threats arising from climate change, including food and water shortages that can produce political turmoil and land disputes, as well as melting ice in the Arctic that Russia and other adversaries could exploit for commercial gain.
Bonus Chapter #2 from The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change: Excerpt: The climate activists have it backward. A 2011 study from the Center for Strategic and International Studies titled “The Climate Wars Myth” found, “Since the dawn of civilization, warmer eras have meant fewer wars.” As author Bruno Tetrais explained, “History shows that ‘warm’ periods are more peaceful than ‘cold’ ones... John Horgan, the director of the Center for Science Writings at the Stevens Institute of Technology, explained, “In spite of the recent surge in violence in the Middle East, war-related casualties have fallen over the last half-century, as temperatures have risen... A 2013 study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that cold eras were dark times in Eastern Europe. “Some of Eastern Europe’s greatest wars and plagues over the last millennium coincided with cold periods,” explained a summary of the study in Science News.
BLF president Andile Mngxitama declared that the cyclone that hit Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi, was “not a natural disaster but a direct consequence of the white, Western system of ecological assault for profits.” This (cyclone) is mass murder which could be prevented if the West abandoned its ways,” Mngxitama stated.
“It’s no longer speculation – even the white man’s own science corroborates what we blacks know: Africa is paying a heavy price for the actions of the white world," he added with a reference to "climate change" science allegedly causing increase in extreme weather.
Morano: "In the 1960s and 70s the environmental movement became radicalized and you can go back in the 1970s John Holdren Obama's former science was out there promoting redistribution of wealth in order to fight what he saw as the greatest environmental threat -- the existential threat at that time overpopulation. All they've done is replaced global warming or now climate change with what used to such scares as resource scarcity, overpopulation the Amazon rainforest disappearing scare. It's always a different environmental scare, the same solution."
Morano to Congress: "'Global warming” is merely the latest environmental scare with the same solutions of wealth redistribution and central planning. “Global warming” is merely the latest environmental scare with the same big government solution. The “Green New Deal” has very little to do with the environment or climate.
The environmental Left has been using green scares to push for the same solutions we see today — wealth redistribution, central planning, sovereignty limiting treaties — since the overpopulation scars of the 1960s and 1970s.
2019 Green New Deal proposed “solution”: OCASIO-CORTEZ CAMPAIGN AIDE CALLS ‘GREEN NEW DEAL’ A PLAN TO ‘REDISTRIBUTE WEALTH AND POWER’ FROM RICH TO POOR
The Green New Deal borrows from previous proposed “solutions”: Flashback: UN IPCC official admits UN seeks to ‘redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy’– UN: 'This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore.’
Flashback 1974 proposed “solution” to battle environmental degradation: Different Environmental Scare, Same Solution: Future Obama science czar John Holdren testified to the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee, “The neo-Malthusian view proposes conscious accommodation to the perceived limits to growth via population limitation and redistribution of wealth in order to prevent the ‘overshoot’ phenomenon. My own sympathies are no doubt rather clear by this point. I find myself firmly in the neo-Malthusian camp.” ...
In summary, the Green New Deal has to be opposed, exposed and defeated. We must challenge the economics, ideology and science claims of this deal. I thank the Western Caucus for this opportunity and look forward to them leading the battle."
MARC MORANO (CLIMATEDEPOT.COM): It's been called the most expensive treaty in world history with a price tag of upwards of $100 trillion, a global cost of $1 to $2 trillion annually, and, again, you mentioned this two degree thing, and I actually point out this was -- the authors of this two degrees target actually admit it was, quote, pulled from thin air, the scientists in the United Nations admit this. So -- and then even The Washington Post has acknowledged that, even if you're afraid of global warning, the U.N. Paris Agreement would basically do nothing, has no impact on the climate. This is medieval witchcraft to think that we can all come together with some treaty, make a bunch of pledges, and have a temperature a hundred years that's different.

Morano: 'This plan is plagiarism pure and simple. They borrowed it from the 1960s and 1970s. In my book, I detail how different environmental scares -- over population, resource scarcity, even global cooling -- had the same solutions: wealth redistribution, central planning, sovereignty limiting, and just a massive government intervention.'
Anchor Brian Kilmeade: The Green New Deal l"ooks like something that was put out by a 10th grader?"
MORANO: "Actually 10th is being very, very generous."
KILMEADE: "Let's go seventh."
MORANO: "I would go as low as third grade. I mean, this is a -- just a big bowl of crazy wish list of everything you could imagine.
