Climate Depot’s rebuttal to climate change/national security claims — Carbon taxes, UN treaties & cap-and-trade will not prevent wars!

-

Climate Depot’s reaction to the latest rounds of climate change and national security claims. [For latest claims, see NYT article: CIA commissioned study by National Research Council claims: ‘Climate change is accelerating, & it will place unparalleled strains on American military & intelligence agencies’]

Climate Depot Round Up Counters global warming/war claims:

New study: Global cooling led to wars, famine and plagues in 1560-1660: Cold ’caused successive agro-ecological, socioeconomic, and demographic catastrophes’

Debunked: the ‘climate change causes wars’ myth —Peer-reviewed paper ‘thoroughly eviscerates’ climate war claims — ‘The primary causes of civil war are political, not environmental’

‘A total takedown’ of myth by the Center for Strategic and International Studies — ‘Since the dawn of civilization, warmer eras have meant fewer wars. The reason is simple: all things being equal, a colder climate meant reduced crops, more famine and instability. Research by climate historians shows a clear correlation between increased warfare and cold periods. They are particularly clear in Asia and Europe, as well as in Africa’

Global Conflict Not Linked to Global Climate Change — ‘Wars in Burundi, Chad, the Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Peru, the Comoros, Congo, Eritrea, Niger, and Rwanda are so numerous that I could probably make a statistical argument that one in five wars are due to the AFC winning the Super Bowl’

Climate Depot’s Inconvenient Rebuttal to ‘National Security’ Climate Argument – August 9, 2009

Shock News : Most Of The World’s Wars Occurred Below 350 PPM CO2 — ‘Now that we know that war is caused by global warming, I was very surprised to discover that the vast majority of wars occurred before 1988 – including the War of 1812’

Discovery News: Cold times led to angry runts, famine, and war; warm times led to The Renaissance

Remarkably sane article in Science: Warm periods are good, cold periods are bad

Time Mag reports: ‘Peaks of social disturbance such as rebellions, revolutions, & political reforms followed every decline of temperature’ — ‘Number of wars increased by 41% in Cold Phase’ — ‘Peaks of social disturbance such as rebellions, revolutions, and political reforms followed every decline of temperature, with a one- to 15-year time lag’

Study: Climate change ‘not to blame’ for African civil wars — ‘Climate variability in Africa does not seem to have a significant impact on risk of civil war’

UN Climate Chief: Middle East Was Peaceful When CO2 Was Below 350 PPM — UN’s Christiana Figueres: ‘Food shortages and rising prices caused by climate disruptions were among the chief contributors to the civil unrest coursing through North Africa and the Middle East’

So much for climate ‘national security’ threat: ‘All Large European Wars Occurred With CO2 Below 350 ppm’

U.S. Military goes full stupid: CO2 To Wreck The Military — The military is threatened by 0.0004 mole fraction CO2 — ‘The Pentagon was warned to stand guard against ‘climate surprises’ which could throw off its efforts to secure America’s future. An expert report, prepared for the intelligence community by National Academy of Sciences, warns that security establishment is going to have start planning for natural disasters, sea-level rise, drought, epidemics & the other consequences of climate change’

Laugh at U.S. Govt! CIA commissioned study by National Research Council claims: ‘Climate change is accelerating, & it will place unparalleled strains on American military & intelligence agencies’ — U.S. Govt. Report cites Sandy as evidence of runaway climate change! John D. Steinbruner: ‘We’re saying climate extremes are going to be more frequent, and this was an example of what they could mean. We’re also saying it could get a whole lot worse than that’
