Nafeez Ahmed - U.S. Military Could Collapse Within 20 Years Due to Climate Change, Report Commissioned By Pentagon Says

The report says a combination of global starvation, war, disease, drought, and a fragile power grid could have cascading, devastating effects.


According to a new U.S. Army report, Americans could face a horrifically grim future from climate change involving blackouts, disease, thirst, starvation and war. The study found that the US military itself might also collapse. This could all happen over the next two decades, the report notes.

After decades of forcing utilities to subsidize electric sports cars and solar panels for millionaires, instead of needed infrastructure for growing population and industry, the cranks have the audacity to blame climate change for running power lines above rated capacity. Mind boggling to see the dialectic thinking in action.

Who wants to wait another 20 years?
Congress could begin the process of collapsing the bloated US military today.

I was arguing with a climate change denier for two days on Twitter. I was pounding him, but he fought back hard by being belligerent. I told him Lord Monkton sprouted nothing but nonsense and I put out a video disproving every point he had made. I told him Lord Monkton was too cowardly to debate with Peter Hadfield. He denied this so I asked Lord Monkton on twitter but got no reply. I told him this and he said he would ask him, but I heard no more.

I started to feel a bit sorry for this guy because I was demolishing his world, so I stopped. But when this article turned up I went back to his twitter page. It was full of climate change deniers. I posted the above article and was waiting for the kick-back, but nothing, only silence.

Glad I don't have a Twitter account. It's like WWIII out there. We might have to increase spending so that our military can cope with it.

Twitter is addictive. Robyn Hitchcock, one of my favourite musicians, said proudly the other day that he had been up 7 minutes and had just only gone on Twitter. I check twitter first thing in the morning too. I've only been using it a couple of months.

YouTube and MNE are my addictions. I believed Mueller Time would help me break free... I believed too much.

“ Mind boggling to see the dialectic thinking in action.”

Not mind boggling to see Ryan more or less copying Matt’s simpleton wording. Matt’s the “authority” for Ryan.
