Two paragraphs from the British newspaper The Observer
about a Pentagon study:
“A secret report, suppressed by US defense
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 [secret] 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.”
This study was conducted in 2003, and the Pentagon has since refuted it to be only a ‘worst case scenario’. Well, guess what. This past year, the data that has been flowing in is showing that the climate is changing as fast as the worst case scenarios of our climate scientists!
– The rise in CO2 is above what they thought it would be.
– The increase in global and regional mean temperatures is breaking every
record, and is higher than they predicted it would be.
– The melting at the poles is more and faster than they thought it would be.
– The sea level rise is higher than they thought it would be.
