Letters: Climate Change and the Integrity of Science: We are deeply disturbed by the recent escalation of political assaults on scientists in general, and on Climate Scientists in particular ... We also call for an end to McCarthy-like threats of criminal prosecution against our colleagues based on innuendo and guilt by association, the harassment of scientists by politicians seeking distractions to avoid taking action, and the outright lies being spread about them. Science Magazine 7th May 2010, open letter from 255 Members of the National Academy of Sciences
In 1977 the worst winter for a century struck the United States. Arctic cold ripped the mid-west for weeks on end. Great blizzards paralysed cities of the north-east … The brutal Buffalo winter might become common all over the United States. Climate experts believe the next Ice Age is on its way. In Search of s2e23 … The Coming Ice Age, 1978
We have the potential to release two or three giga-tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere in the next couple of centuries. When we look at the Siberian Trap volcanism we’re talking about maybe similar quantities of carbon dioxide released, but over millennia to over a million years. Professor Lee Kump, marine geochemist
Sudden and dramatic climate change: dust and ash blocked out the sun; temperatures dropped like a stone and kept on dropping thanks to the impact’s location; the blast generated incredible heat; it vaporized the rock and blasted tons of sulphur dioxide into the air; it mixed with water in the atmosphere to form sulphuric acid droplets: and that was a disaster. Tony Robinson, Catastrophe IV: Asteroid, Channel 4 2008

How did global warming cause the Mediterranean to smash through the Bosphorus Sill? ... The Ice Dam was melting, and around 8,400 years ago it finally gave way. ibid.

We call it the Little Ice Age and it delivered two brutal blows to the inhabitants of medieval Europe ... The great famine ... The black death was one of the worst pandemics in history; it began not in Europe but in Asia as a direct consequence of the impact of climate change on rodents. ibid.
Nevertheless, an effective political substitute for wars would require ‘alternative enemies’ some of which might seem equally far-fetched in the context of the current war system.
It may be, for instance, that gross pollution of the environment can eventually replace the possibility of mass destruction by nuclear weapons as the principle apparent threat to the survival of the species.

In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine, and the like would fit the bill ... All these dangers are caused by human intervention ... But the real enemy, then, is humanity itself. The First Global Revolution 1991 published by Club of Rome, globalist think-tank
Considerable strides have been made in creating a system of international environmental governance to achieve global sustainable development through the management of cross-border environmental disputes and protection of the global commons. The Commission on Global Governance: Our Global Neighborhood p208
During his speech at West Point Military Academy earlier this week, President Barack Obama described climate change as a ‘creeping national security crisis’ that will require the armed forces to ‘respond to refugee flows, natural disasters, and conflicts over water and food’.
The speech emphasised that US foreign policy in the 21st century is increasingly being honed in recognition of heightened risks of social, political and economic upheaval around the world due the impacts of global warming.
… To be sure, the link between climate change and the risk of violence is supported by many independent studies …
But the era of climate warfare is not lying in wait, in some far-flung distant future. It has already begun, and it is accelerating – faster than most predicted …
This is what happens when one views the world, even with the best of intentions, through the twin lenses of military might and economic clout. We become incapable of recognising that the fundamental obstacle to addressing our global challenges is that we see enemies everywhere.
Climate change can create security risks, but to deal with them seriously, we need to stop projecting and recognise our own hand in the violence we’re so terrified of out there. Nafeez Ahmed, article The Guardian online, ‘The age of climate warfare is here. The military-industrial complex is ready. Are you?’
Burning carbon-based substances like oil, gas, and especially coal, produces billions of tons of extra carbon dioxide each year. Methane gas from cows and pigs and other animals on our large farms ends up in the atmosphere as well, trapping more of the sun's energy as heat. Bill Nye
My biggest objection to Marxism has been the presumption that industry should exist at all. I think the unstoppable juggernaut which is global warming demonstrates that processing natural materials on an industrial scale is a suicidal practice. David Katzman
Doing all we can to combat climate change comes with numerous benefits, from reducing pollution and associated health care costs to strengthening and diversifying the economy by shifting to renewable energy, among other measures. David Suzuki
The increasing frequency of extreme weather events, droughts and floods is in line with what climate scientists have been predicting for decades – and evidence is mounting that what’s happening is more severe than predicted, and will get far worse still if we fail to act. David Suzuki
Climate change is a global problem. The planet is warming because of the growing level of greenhouse gas emissions from human activity. If this trend continues, truly catastrophic consequences are likely to ensue from rising sea levels, to reduced water availability, to more heat waves and fires. Malcolm Turnbull
Which risk would you rather take? ... What’s the wisest thing to do given the uncertainties and risks? Greg Craven
