More global warming fear mongering

Apparently the sheeple aren't clamoring for government intervention fast enough for the powers that be. Now they have to invent new and creative ways of scaring them.

The risks of climate change have turned from a threat to reality impacting the conflict in Darfur, migration from flood-prone Bangladesh and hopes for stability in the Middle East, according to a new EU report.

From Africa to Asia, and from pole to pole, climate change has become "a threat multiplier which exacerbates existing trends, tensions and instability," warns the seven-page report on "Climate change and international security", to be presented to a European summit in Brussels on March 13-14.

Among the listed threats are "reduction of arable land, widespread shortage of water, diminishing food and fish stocks, increased flooding and prolonged droughts."

These problems, according to the report drawn up by the offices of EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana and EU External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner, "are already happening in many parts of the world".
Uh-huh. "[A]lready happening"? S-u--u-u-u-u-re they are....

Okay, let's take a break from the fairy tale and look at the reality. This article comes from (believe it or not) NPR.
Some 3,000 scientific robots that are plying the ocean have sent home a puzzling message. These diving instruments suggest that the oceans have not warmed up at all over the past four or five years. That could mean global warming has taken a breather. Or it could mean scientists aren't quite understanding what their robots are telling them.
Or, it could mean that...wait for it...there AIN'T NO STINKIN' GLOBAL WARMING!!!

There's more.
80 percent to 90 percent of global warming involves heating up ocean waters....Since the system was fully deployed in 2003, it has recorded no warming of the global oceans.
No kidding? Hmmm.......
"There has been a very slight cooling, but not anything really significant," Willis says.
Cooling. I see.

Face it, these assclowns haven't the foggiest idea what is really happening with the climate. But they damn sure want to saddle us with new, creative taxes to "eliminate" the "warming". Will the sheeple buy it? Don't put it past them...
