Thought of the month ...
May 2014: Climate Change: an enemy with weapons of mass destruction:. As Tom Engelhart in his May 22, 2014 post in Huffington Post points out, Dick Cheney created to so-called “one percent doctrine,” which basically states that “if there was even a 1% chance of an attack on the United States, especially involving weapons of mass destruction, it must be dealt with as if it were a 95% to 100% certainty.” Engelhart then goes on to claim that climate change is a weapon of mass destruction that actually has a 95% to 100% chance to attack the U.S. in many place. I full agree with him, and I have often stated that climate change and sea level rise will cause many Pearl Habor attacks. Despite the clear evidence of this very powerful enemy preparing to attack, the U.S. House does not follow Dick Cheney's doctrine. In fact, they decided to do the opposite and try to keep Pentagon from even assessing the enemy: as Kate Sheppard reports on May 23, 2014 in an article in Huffington Posts, the House directs the Pentagon to ignore climate change. With this, the house actively undermines national security and prepares the ground for many disasters caused by the most powerful enemy the U.S. ever had.
