Kyoto Kanoe
Where a "real" national security crisis looms.... obviously the August 6th PDB didn't signal a "real" one. Aparrently, greenhouse gas and global warming (check the recent weather) are not signalling one either.

>>CLIMATE COLLAPSE
The Pentagon's Weather Nightmare
The climate could change radically, and fast. That would be the mother of all national security issues.
By David Stipp<<

>>The threat that has riveted their attention is this: Global warming, rather than causing gradual, centuries-spanning change, may be pushing the climate to a tipping point. Growing evidence suggests the ocean-atmosphere system that controls the world's climate can lurch from one state to another in less than a decadelike a canoe that's gradually tilted until suddenly it flips over. Scientists don't know how close the system is to a critical threshold. But abrupt climate change may well occur in the not-too-distant future. If it does, the need to rapidly adapt may overwhelm many societiesthereby upsetting the geopolitical balance of power.<<

2. Is your neighborhood weather acting a little strange lately?
I think the clue phone is ringing--and Mother Earth has some bad news for us all.

3. Not to worry... destruction, war, warmachines, radiation, explosions
cognitive dissonance, will fix everything. Oh, and greenhouse gas, that will certainly fix everything.... when the earth has had enough, she will flick us off like the parasites we have become.
