Excerpt: The climate activists have it backward. A 2011 study published by 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.
CNN: The remains uncovered at Jebel Sahaba, which are more than 13,000 years old, show injuries sustained as a result of brutal and intense violence -- mainly puncture wounds from weapons such as spears and arrows. However, a new study published in the journal Scientific Reports that reexamined the remains using the latest scientific methods suggests that the group were not killed in a one-off massacre as previously thought. More likely they were killed during sporadic and recurrent violence that took place over several years and was probably triggered by major climatic and environmental changes during the period. ... She said there was no way to be sure about what people were fighting about as there are no written documents.
That said, the researchers believe that the conflict arose as rival groups that lived in the area competed for food and resources limited by dramatic changes in climate. Those changes took place between 11,000 and 20,000 years ago toward the end of a period known as the last glacial maximum, when ice sheets covered much of the Northern Hemisphere, disrupting the Earth's climate.
MI6 head Richard Moore - known as "C" - claimed that man-made climate change is "foremost international foreign policy item for this country and for the planet," adding: "Our job is to shine a light in places where people might not want it shone and so clearly we are going to support what is the foremost international foreign policy agenda item for this country and for the planet, which is around the climate emergency, and of course we have a role in that space." ... "Where people sign up to commitments on climate change, it is perhaps our job to make sure that what they are really doing reflects what they have signed up to," he continued, which - depending on one's read of his wording - could imply this is already happening.
"As somebody used to say - 'trust, but verify'," said Moore, adding "On climate change, where you need everyone to come on board and to play fair, then occasionally just check to make sure they are."
NYT: Avril Haines, the director of national intelligence, struck a note of urgency in telling world leaders that climate change must be “fully integrated” with national security. President Biden committed the United States to cutting emissions by half by the end of the decade at a virtual Earth Day summit.
TRUMP: "I am especially proud to be the first president in decades who has started no new wars."
Marc Morano: Thank you, Mr. President! You have achieved what few Presidents have when it comes to securing the U.S.'s national security. Your energy policies contributed greatly to achieving no new wars. Previous Presidents paid lip service to "energy independence" but during your administration, you not only achieved it, but you also went one step better -- you presided over an American energy renaissance that led to U.S. energy dominance!
In 2019, “U.S. energy exports exceeded imports for the first time since 1952,” the EIA reported. The EIA also reported, “In 2019, U.S. energy production exceeded energy consumption for the first time since 1957,” when Dwight D. Eisenhower was president. Trump's energy achievements were so off the charts that the last time the U.S. saw this kind of energy dominance was when Harry S. Truman was president in 1952!
Marc Morano: "Policies that promote a massive expansion of U.S. domestic energy production is one of the best safeguards against engaging in 'an endless parade' of wars and interventions over energy supplies. Thanks to the Trump administration’s America First energy policy, the U.S. no longer needs to start or fight in wars over energy. America has its own domestically produced energy to rely on." ...

President Trump accomplished all of this while the U.S. continued to lead the world in reducing carbon dioxide emissions. ...
"The proposed climate 'solutions' of the Green New Deal and the Biden administration's climate and energy executive orders is a threat to U.S. national security as the plan would only serve to shrink U.S. energy production and increase our dependence on Middle Eastern oil and force us to rely on energy from other potentially hostile nations, which could increase the odds of future wars." ...
"By restricting fossil fuels and mandating solar, wind and electric vehicles will result in more environmental degradation due to increasing the U.S. dependence on rare earth mining operated by China and Russia."
"U.S. spies, analysts and policymakers will write the country's first National Intelligence Estimate on climate change under an executive order President Biden plans to issue today...Much of Biden's directive will focus on national security — an arena experts say will become more strained as the planet heats up.
The task of writing the National Intelligence Estimate will fall to Avril Haines, Biden's newly installed director of national intelligence. These documents typically include input from the multitude of U.S. intelligence agencies, including the CIA. It's a level of analysis reserved for the most significant threats facing the United States."
2021 Scare: "Imagine seeing the Lincoln Memorial surrounded by churning Potomac waters, or only being able to access the Pentagon by boat...The Pentagon, accessible by boat...The Lincoln Memorial would eventually be on an island in the Potomac River, if world keeps burning fossil fuels."
In his 2019 memoir, A Promised Land, he admits to the unfortunate optics of his trip to the 2009 UN global summit on climate change in Copenhagen. “Has anyone ever considered,” he reportedly asked an aide on the flight to Copenhagen, “the amount of carbon dioxide I’m releasing into the atmosphere as a result of these trips to Europe?” The aide quipped, “You might not want to mention that in your speech tomorrow.” ...
Koonin said atmospheric CO2 will continue to increase whatever draconian solutions governments impose on their citizens, with the poor everywhere suffering most. A fan of mankind, Koonin believes that adaptation to a gradual global warming will allow us to prosper. “This is not at all an unmitigated disaster as people would have you believe,” said Koonin. “We’ll learn to take advantage of whatever changes happen rather than simply tolerate them. That’s what humans do, and we’re pretty good at it.”
