Climate change a WMD?

Secretary of State John Kerry drove home a hard line on the threats of climate change Sunday, saying they rank as high as terrorism threats.

“When I think about the array … of global threats, think about this: terrorism, epidemics, poverty, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction — all challenges that know no borders. The reality is that climate change ranks right up there with every single one of them,” Kerry said in a speech at the American Center in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The speech begins a climate blitz by Kerry, who said he will “engage in a series of public and private discussions on the urgency of addressing climate change — particularly on the national security implications and the economic opportunities.”

Kerry pledged to put climate change front and center in all U.S. diplomatic efforts. As of this week, Kerry said he will instruct all chiefs of missions at U.S. embassies across the globe to “make climate change a top priority and use all the tools of diplomacy that they have at their disposal.”

Adding weight to his message, Kerry went so far as to call the changing climate itself a weapon.

    10 years ago Time said we were entering a second ice age. Did not happen.
    then the global warming nuts made up a new term “Global Warming”. Did not happen as the earth has been cooling for the last 10 years. Now in the grips of the coldest winter in decades, with snow up to our arses, the new term is “Climate Change” as people no longer are suckers for Global Warming. These charlatans were caught altering raw data to support their claims of global warming in an effort to get more tax payer’s monies in the form of govt grants to study “Global Warming” which is now called Climate Change. How do you trust these people? How?

    Gee, I wish the Administration wouldn’t “HAARP” on the weather…………………

    Liberals rarely concern themselves with areas which are the traditional domain and business of God Almighty and have gone out of their way to defy the laws of nature and nature’s God and to overtly promote transgression of them. They think that by capping pollution and exhaust they will somehow overrule the course of nature and will of nature’s God to do with earth as He will. Isn’t that just a bit naive? More likely, this is just another reason and scheme to have taxpayers cough up more tax dollars for some government bureaucracy. We are satisfied with the predictions of the ten-day forecast. Who cares whether next winter will or will not average 10 degrees warmer than this present winter. Frankly, it would be a blessing if it does from the standpoint of fuel costs. Having nothing but failures and embarrassing mistakes to their political credit, they present an issue that no one really understands, no one can intelligently do anything about and expect the public to swallow it lock, stock and barrel. BS. and bovine flatulence is not responsible for anything but pure speculation. Gets your noses out from where they don’t belong.

    One volcanic eruption like at Mt. St. Helen’s puts more CO2 into the atmosphere than all the vehicles ever created by man. Human activity is insignificant on a global scale.

      Scientists (non gov’t paid) know that the planets temperature is manipulated by volcanos and the sun. Only the Global Warming nut cases refuse to look at that data. We also know that all of the planets in our solar system are affected by the sun alone creating changes in surface temperature. Again, the nut cases refuse to include that data. If it does not fit the grand plan then it must be removed from the equation which is why it never adds up. We know the answers but ICPP keeps it buried.

        Man made global warming is a political tool of the Left. They want to get government control of the energy industry as part of their plan to force us into a socialist totalitarian regime.

    Johnny-your post makes too much sense for the liberals to accept. They are trying desperately to find something to tax. So now we have Obama the emperor and Kerry the Climate Changer. If you want to know something about the ozone ask Pelosi as she spends most of her time zoned out. Good Luck America !!!

    Climate change has been going on since the beginning of time. Mother Nature well knows how to handle every thing. However, it is when man/humans get in the way of things and change things that all goes wrong. Man-made disasters are the fault of what it wrong with nature such as it is. A simple example would be California and its mud slides. Years ago where there were many trees man/humans stepped in and cut down a great many trees, then had another brilliantly stupid idea of building houses on the hill sides. This was done not thinking of the rainy season/s. Hence, it rained heavily and the mud of the hillsides slid downhill due to the gravitational pull of the planet. The rest it history. Now kerry expects us to believe that the government is going to save the planet from what the politicians cannot. Leave nature the hell alone and it will work out just fine. Man/humans is/are their own worst enemy and yet those in the dc group want to tax us on Mother Nature. You have got to be kidding.

      No Pal, government can’t but you who obviously aren’t responsible for pouring endless amounts of CO2 out of your SUVs exhaust pipe are the only one who can slow the change. Its coming whether you or some of your politically blind friends like it or not and obviously you want to help it along. Sounds like a brilliant idea led by people with their heads in the sand. Keep that giant SUV pouring the CO2 to it. Its only a plot by liberals and the weak minded. 97% of the scientists are wrong too. Who does your doctoring when you are sick., a scientist doctor or do you go to your SUV mechanic to get help.

      1. Jerome Liner says:

        Whoever told you 97% of the scientists believe in global warming fed you a line of bullshit and you bought it hook line and sinker. Despite what the climate change people say, there is a very large body of climatologists and other scientist who believe the climate change bru ha ha is a fraud. With China, India, Indonesia and many others burning coal as fast as they can get it, nothing we do will even make a demnt in the air content of CO2. We have spent the last 17 years with the earth slightly cooling, despite the CO2 content rising. This is physically impossibler if CO2 causes warming.

        1. Gnowark says:

          FYI Jerome, it is no longer global warming, now the same greenhouse gases that caused warming are responsible for the global cooling and Antarctic ice growing. Those crafty devils of gas, soon the left will have proof (97% no doubt) they are republicans, too.

      2. Keith says:

        You actually believe all of the crap you have been fed on this subject, don’t you? This is an example of total brainwashing by our school systems. No logical thinking and scientific analysis just mimicking the talking points of the American Communist Party.

        Gaylord, do not assume, it makes an arse out u and lies about me. I do not drive an SUV, I drive a jetta that gets 44MPG.
