Bernie Sanders stood by his remark from the last Democratic debate in which he called climate change the greatest threat to national security, a day after the deadliest attack on French soil since the end of World War II.

“Absolutely. In fact, climate change is directly related to the rise of global terrorism,” he said. “This is what the CIA says,” he went on to say, noting a struggle for limited resources like water and land.

During the October debate, Sanders explained it in a different context.

“The scientific community is telling us if we do not address the global crisis of climate change, transform our energy system away from fossil fuel to sustainable energy, the planet that we’re going to be leaving our kids and our grandchildren may well not be habitable,” he said.

Martin O’Malley has voiced similar concerns about climate change being the underlying cause of unrest in the region.

  1. The clijmate change we have been experiencing is caused by the sun and the oceans and has been going on for eons. So what Mr. Sanders is saying is that the violence is caused by the sun and the oceans. So how do we get rid of the sun and the oceans that are causing the problem?

  2. Sanders is nuts of course. When we get honest research results out of Government controlled institutions, we will then get a truthful idea where we stand. Currently if a Government/University scientist goes against the far-left dogma, he or she will lose their grant funding. That is a sure sign there is something dreadfully wrong with scientific honesty in climate research. Research that is done with preconceived outcomes is not research, it is political agenda, and that is the state of climate research being done today – the results are cooked in from the start.

  3. What’s
    the America hating tow the line Democrat Party to do? Those tyranny worshiping
    fools have a serious dilemma on their hands. Not that the puppets know it, but.
    One choice just so happens to be a “TREASONOUS TRAITOR & an ESPIONAGE
    agent” with a life long (documentable) history of criminal activity. And the
    other is a “SELF PROCLAIMED SOCIALIST”, and proud of that fact. Along with a
    record that backs that confession. And that’s the best you got too offer? Neither
    of them will “honor” an oath that is required for the position they seek.
    Neither ever has “honored” the oath they made previously…why would they do so
    now? As for the baby batter stain that calls them selves a Democrat. A
    Progressive. Or a Liberal. They ALL nurture the same communist philosophies.
    Just the titles are different… so that the ignorant detriment to America
    demographic can choose what label sounds better on them when the wind shifts.
    However, ALL worship the same communist philosophies none the less. The only
    real difference is that some of those Pawns of Satin are proud of their
    philosophy. And the other is simply too ignorant to know what they are
    nurturing. They are what I refer to as “the demographic of the CRIS inflicted,
    dog named Stay mentality moron.” (Cranium Rectum Inversion Syndrome)

  4. Won’t transforming our energy system away from fossil fuels reduce the transfer of wealth from evil capitalist countries like the U.S. to Islamic countries in the Middle East, thus ruining their economic base and creating millions more poor people in those countries?
    This will only increase the unrest in the region and lead to more terrorists. Therefore the War on Global Warming will actually increase threats to our national security.
