Now the Pentagon tells Bush: climate change will destroy us

A secret report, suppressed by US defence chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world.

The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents.

‘Disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life,’ concludes the Pentagon analysis. ‘Once again, warfare would define human life.’

The findings will prove humiliating to the Bush administration, which has repeatedly denied that climate change even exists. Experts said that they will also make unsettling reading for a President who has insisted national defence is a priority.

To be clear, the nuclear threats discussed will very likely be developed as a deterrent to American aggression. I have no doubt that in future the greatest threat to Europe, and the rest of the world, will come from the US, as they start waging wars to control food and water. We are, after all, talking about a country that would rather wage illegal wars of aggression, in order to control the energy resources of Middle Eastern countries, than address their dependency.

Once again American intelligence reveals itself to be flawed by applying it’s own cruel logic to the rest of the world.
