Is global warming for real? Does it threaten our country?
A lot of smart people think so, but a lot of dumb-ass people don’t.
In one of the most ludricous encounters I’ve heard of in some time occurred this past in an apparent ongoing verbal battle on whether the CIA should spend time and money on how global warming would affect US security. Global warming is a reality and the situation is most likely far-off-worse than the scientists and researchers have allowed.
In a Thursday op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal, Rep. Pete Hoekstra, a Republican from Minnesota, wondered if terrorists are being put on the back burner while they search for clues of a warming earth’s impact on national security.
“House Democrats want to return to the days when the CIA wasted valuable resources on ‘bugs and bunnies.’ My objection is not about the validity of global climate change. I am concerned about whether it’s an intelligence issue,” Hoekstra wrote.
