Defense Secretary Proclaims Global Warming Farce to Be a National Security Threat

With an adolescent moonbat in change of the Executive Branch, it should come as no surprise that the international situation is spinning out of control. Fortunately communist-affiliated lifelong leftist hack and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has identified a crisis sure to take everyone’s mind off the Chen Guangcheng fiasco in China and Russia’s threat to blow up NATO missile defenses. Being an imaginary problem, it can be cured with the imaginary solutions that are all our government has. On Wednesday Panetta declared to the Environmental Defense Fund:

“The area of climate change has a dramatic impact on national security. Rising sea levels, severe droughts, the melting of the polar caps, the more frequent and devastating natural disasters all raise demand for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.”

Back on earth, CO2 levels steadily rise, yet the National Weather Service Forecast Office reports:

This has been an extreme winter for sea ice in the Bering Sea and now we have broken the records for most number of days with ice at both Saint Paul Island and Saint George Island.

Like the global warming farce, our rulers have become a tired joke.

Only idiots are still buying it.

On tips from Bob Roberts and Metryq. Hat tip: Watts Up With That?

    What is interesting is that Shrillary repeated the same mantra in China. Word for word. They shoved a blind activist out the door to be tortured, but not to worry—China agreed to buy all of G.E.’s “clean” stoves by 2020!

    As a former sailor I think rising sea levels are a good thing. Eventually I will be able to dock my cruiser in Kansas and work from home.

  • whotothewhat

    Why don’t we relocate all global warming nut jobs to the arctic. After freezing in that frozen hell and getting picked off by polar bears they so love, maybe they will come to the realization they are WRONG about global warming.

  • StanInTexas

    whotothewhat, based upon the fact that everything these warmist tell us is openly false, AND the fact that every prediction that have ever made concerning gloom and doom has failed to come true; I can honestly say that there is no force on Earth that will convince these “scientists” that they are wrong.

    They are more devout that the most fervent religion fanatic!

  • Spider

    With this statement, and most of his actions, Panetta proves that he is totally unfit to be Sec. of Defense, or anything else. He has never been anything other than a leftist hack, crawling in and out of the woodwork in DC.

    But, as far as our national security is concerned, there’s a far more serious question to be asked and answered. How many years will it take to find and remove all the radical left-wing moles he planted at the CIA and the Defense Dept?

  • Bob Roberts

    The sad thing about this whole mess is that it, as usual, obscures the truth – truth which could have serious consequences for us all.

    It is true that normal, natural climate change may indeed present serious national security challenges.

    But trying to use this to attack fossil fuel producers is wrong.

    And just think – you’ll be able to come vacation at Arizona Bay.

  • What a joke, the “stranded” polar bear pic is complete BS anyway

    In reality, Polar Bears can swim for hundreds of miles at a time. The longest recorded polar bear swim, according to National Geographic, was 426 miles nonstop!

    Since these bears swim for a living, they’re pretty unlikely to be stuck on an ice floes!

  • chuck in st paul

    This was red meat thrown to the base – The Environmental Defense (sic) Fund. Hmmmm, is there an election due? /sarc

  • Ghost of FA Hayek

    What’s worse is the massive chilling effect this will have on Chinese subjects who are demanding more freedoms.
    The Chicom’s will simply point to a now dead Chinese dissident and proclaim:
    “You mean freedom as in Obama’s America” ?

  • Bob Roberts

    By the way, in the photo of the polar bear, above, if you look closely you can see where the deep water channel transitions to shallow water. The photo was taken as a ship was leaving a harbor and it was cropped by a greeniac to remove the land that is visible just beyond the current top border. The false claim invented to go with this photo was that this polar bear was trapped on an ever-shrinking piece of ice, way too far from land to possibly be able to swim back, thus certain to drown.

    Of course it was 100% false, as is much that we hear from trolls, leftists and Democrats.

  • metprof

    And owing the Chicoms a shitload of money isn’t?

  • Joe

    When are these dopey polar bear defenders going to understand that if the whole area where they live was frozen, they would starve. They eat fish. Fish swim in water. They swim in the water to get to the fish. I’ve never seen a polar bear with an ice auger cutting hole in the ice to get to the fish. Just admit you’ve been duped and move on.

    Bob said:

    Normal, natural, climate change has been occurring for Millions of years. Yes, even before second-hand smoke and muscle cars! In fact, here in the NE, climate change happens 3 or 4 times a year. It’s called, “seasons”. It gets warm, then it gets hot, then it gets cool, then it gets cold.

    The only genuine threat to our national security is caused by the lying crooks we elect to public office.

  • ZZMike

    This is great. Now that it’s a national security issue, we can start arresting people who think there’s no GW.

  • bobdog

    Somebody explain to me how rising tides constitute a national security threat. Or how the Defense Department has anything to do with meeting this “threat”.

    For example, how many troops will he need to defend, say, Cincinnati?
