Leon Panetta claims climate change is a national security threat

May 3, 2012

  Now that the Obama regime has declared the war on terror to be over Leon Panetta can focus his attention of the real threat endangering our country–global warming.

  Leon Panetta spoke in front of an environmental group and said this:

The area of climate change has a dramatic impact on national security,” Panetta told the Environmental Defense Fund last night. “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

  There you have it, with al Qaeda and the Taliban out of the way and no longer a threat to the nation because Barack Obama said so the United States can now turn its attention away from those silly little terrorists and focus on an issue that really interests the president; restricting the liberties and freedoms of American citizens, and attacking the industries which keep America moving. And apparently the Department of Defense is on board.

    Panetta has been drinking too much kool-aid. With all the very serious problems this country is facing, he decides to focus on a non-problem; climate change. You would think he might want to spend his time to figure out how we are gojing to contain China. Maybe he thinks if he can’t get money for national defense maybe he can get money to fight Mother Nature.

      It sure does seem as if he should be focused on more important issues instead of pandering to a special interest group, and one that has already been debunked at that.

    When did Obama declare that the “war on terror is over?” Oh, that’s right… he didn’t. You’re lying.

    As a scientist, I am always amused at pronouncements made by non-scientists such as Al Gore–outlandish claims made without an understanding what constitutes sound science. GW/CC may indeed be real but to posit that man is causing it is nothing more than another post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy all gussied up as intelligent discourse. There is no direct evidence linking our activities with GW/CC. Al Gore is a moron.

      He may be a moron but he sure has made quite a bit of money scamming the people.

        That he has… unfortunately.

    Panetta is a national security threat – he has no business being head of the DOD – he’s a political hack who is undermining the military with his budget cuts – put the entitlement leeches to work and save the taxpayers money. The men and women in the military, work for a living the welfare leeches do not..WM

    I have never seen anyone with such a one-track mind as these liberals, when it comes to climate change, ie. global warming. Since when is climate change the purview of the Secretary of Defense?

      That is a great question Larry and one I have been wondering myself.

      When they have to come up with “something, anything”, so people will focus on that all weekend instead of something they are going to sneak thru. Watch the other hand, Larry. I trust none of them, period.

        Yep, and I have to admit I have fallen into the trap but I still think it is important to shine the light on these people.

    I recall doing a post where Janet of DHS fame also laid claimed to global warming and was assigning the coast guard to projects.

      Scary stuff, it appears as if the Obama regime is preparing all federal agencies to help implement his radical eco-ideology.

    Honestly I read an article today that suggested all these wild Democratic flights of fancy will simply wear Conservatives (and Mitt) down. I think we need to just hammer the crap out of the horrible job this president has been doing.

    Regarding Global Warming… you either believe it or you do not.

      The problem with “believing” in GW/CC is that science is not predicated on belief but verifiable evidence. GW/CC has neither.


      • May 3, 2012 10:27 pm

        Exactly! Yet the GW “scientists” came up with the result first and then tried to prove the result, instead of following the evidence and reaching a conclusion based on it.That is not science.

      You are right Harrison, we need to focus on Obama’s record if we want to defeat him. This could be just another attempt at deflecting public attention away from Obama.

        Yes I think it is. I will be writing about it on Monday. These are distractions. In trying to chase them down we exhaust ourselves. I am guilty of this as well. Al Gore got a “D” in Natural Sciences at Harvard.

        It is hard not to fall into the trap because these people do need to be exposed for who they are.

    Climate change for the liberals is a win-win. Either they profit from it or it is a smoke screen to distract from other problems.

    I’ve always maintained that this scam was about money and wealth redistribution. The ghosts Panetta is chasing will cost a bundle.

    Hi Steve. This is, I believe, the biggest threat we citizens face. Very few are talking about this. Here are a couple links to research.,_Says_DHS_Informant.html
