Is the Global Warming Crowd Really This Desperate?


“In the years prior to civil war breaking out in Syria, that country also experienced its worst drought on record,” she said during a political speech at Stanford University. “Farming families moved en masse into urban centers, increasing political unrest and further priming the country for conflict.”

An alarmed Rice warned that climate change was “an advancing menace.” 
“Today, we face no greater long-term challenge than climate change, an advancing menace that imperils so many of the other things we hope to achieve,” she said according to advance text of her speech.
I guess no one has told the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations about the ruthlessness of Bashar al-Assad, ISIS, or Al Qaeda. Or, for that matter, that 250,000,000 have moved from the country to cities in China without a civil war. Or, that the same urbanization trend is occurring in the United States regardless of drought conditions.

  1. Climate change, it explains everything and nothing.

    Your point about drought in the U.S. Is key. Will the recent drought in TX and current drought in CA lead to civil war? No. We have trade, specialization, and the rule of law. Syria? Little to none.

  2. And a quote...

    The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.
