This came across my news feed: Pentagon tells Bush: climate change will destroy us. World: Secret report warns of rioting and nuclear war· Britain will be 'Siberian' in less than 20 years · Threat to the world is greater than terrorism.
This is going to have a profound effect on the 2004 election campaign. President Bush has been unwilling to admit that global warming even exists. Now he is confronted with a real potential threat to our coastal towns and cities, and the global threats anarchy brought on by the world's lack of resources or time to minimize the threat and prepare mankind for a major environmental event.
President Bush has spent America's credibility on the environment, having none left as this breaking story circulates around the globe. The President has helped his Republican Congress put is so far into debt so far into the future, that we may not have the resources to prepare for this threat to the U.S. and the world. One thing our President has done is to provide for unprecedented military growth and dispersement. Now if anyone tries to blame or retalliate against the U.S. for not signing the Kyoto treaty, or if any nations drowning try to exit their borders with the intent of moving to the U.S., we at least can put down that threat in a quick damn hurry.
Do you trust this President to deal with this looming potential threat. In order to deal with it, he would have to admit he was wrong on the Kyoto agreement. Have you ever heard this President admit an error, a mistake, or ever reveal that he is fallible and human like the rest of us? I for one cannot trust this President to get over his reelection long enough to pay one hour of serious rational deliberation on the Pentagon's warning. [Third Party & Independents]
