CIA Focuses On The Dangers Of Climate Change

From Judicial Watch:

What Scandal? CIA Hard At Work Exposing Security Risks of “Climate Phenomena”

November 14, 2012

As the CIA basks in the shame of a major sex scandal the spy agency divulges some of its valuable work concerning global warming, that it presents a worldwide security risk caused mainly by “social and political stresses outside the United States.” …

In fact, many Americans may not know that the CIA, created in 1947 by President Harry S. Truman, operates a special center dedicated to global warming. Judicial Watch wrote about it last fall because it operates under a cloak of secrecy that rejects all public-records requests.

What we do know is was launched under President Obama in 2009, it’s known as the Center on Climate Change and National Security and it is considered an exclusive unit led by “senior specialists.”

As the agency suffers through a monstrous scandal this month, it comes out with a startling report exposing the national security dangers of global warming. Climate change is accelerating at such a fast pace that it will put severe strains on U.S. military and intelligence agencies in the coming years, the CIA-sanctioned study found. The changes will trigger increasingly disruptive developments around the world as well.

“Scientific evidence indicates that the global climate is moving outside the bounds of past experience and can be expected to put new stresses on societies around the world, prompting examination of a variety of plausible scenarios through which climate change might pose or alter security risks for the United States,” according to a summary from the report. It goes on to offer an improved understanding of the links between climate and security as well as the ability to anticipate potential security risks arising from “climate phenomena.”

Keeping with the CIA’s primary mission of gathering foreign intelligence, the report focuses on climate-related “social and political stresses outside the United States.” It outlines security risks that might “exceed the capacity of affected populations to cope and respond.” How exactly will this occur? Seemingly unrelated events exacerbated by climate change will cause an unpredictable crisis in water and energy supplies, food markets and public health systems

Even if any of this were true, why should the CIA be involved? What part of this would be kept secret? Why would you need ‘to spy’ to find any of this out?

No, this is just another attempt by the Obama administration to distract another agency from its true mission. Just as Obama has done with NASA.

    so the Spooks are going GREEN.
    maybe that’s why the newest James Bond movie is called “Skyfall”

    “Decision makers need information and analysis on the effects climate change can have on security. The CIA is well positioned to deliver that intelligence,” said Director Leon Panetta.

    Sep 25, 2009 – The Central Intelligence Agency is launching The Center on Climate Change and National Security as the focal point for its work on the subject.

    The Central Intelligence Agency is launching The Center on Climate Change and National Security as the focal point for its work on the subject. The Center is a small unit led by senior specialists from the Directorate of Intelligence and the Directorate of Science and Technology.

    Its charter is not the science of climate change, but the national security impact of phenomena such as desertification, rising sea levels, population shifts, and heightened competition for natural resources. The Center will provide support to American policymakers as they negotiate, implement, and verify international agreements on environmental issues. That is something the CIA has done for years. “Decision makers need information and analysis on the effects climate change can have on security. The CIA is well positioned to deliver that intelligence,” said Director Leon Panetta.

    The Center will assume responsibility for coordinating with Intelligence Community partners on the review and declassification of imagery and other data that could be of use to scientists in their own climate-related research. This effort draws on imagery and other information that is collected in any event, assisting the US scientific community without a large commitment of resources.

    The new Center does more than bring together in a single place expertise on an important national security topic—the effect environmental factors can have on political, economic, and social stability overseas. It will also be aggressive in outreach to academics and think tanks working the issue. The goal is a powerful asset recognized throughout our government, and beyond, for its knowledge and insight.


    Well, the UN Agenda 21 has taken over the U.S. as well as the world.

    During the WSOccupiers were protesting, the EPA site said they were heavily studying to the occupiers to learn every inch area where masses of people could assemble. As if this was a good thing.

    I worried about this because the EPA wants people moving from rural areas into urban areas. I thought maybe the areas would really be used to build govt housing units as they are doing here.

    The goal is to have trolleys, bikes. In my state they are land grabbing and making bicycles paths. Romney was into all of this EPA as governor, it’s just in the end he’d be more bendable and listen to the Republicans. He did stop short of the electric volt. This is why Republicans picked him hoping to gain the liberal side.

    I wondered if the high tech map they made was to know where to fly helicopters over to drop food, or…tear gas. lol…depending who was protesting.

    This election Sec of Defense Hillary Clinton unconstitutionally allowed foreign countries to watch the U.S. electoral process. Insane in today’s technology to allow them around the electronic equipment.

    Oh, and those retina eye scanners will come in handy the FBI has been building and will come in handy in crowded areas as drones fly over us.

    I wondered if the real reason was for land grabbing as the EPA wants people in rural areas to move back to urban liv

    I think it makes for easier allowances and excuses for o-hole to give millions more U.S. $$$$ in foreign aid to muslim middle eastern countries. in their future riots, it will be easier to blame climate change for starvation and poverty, because the CIA studied it and made the reports. it can’t be the dictatorial gov’ts and the fact that even though they are already living in the desert (for thousands of years) they still don’t know how to efficiently or effectively grow food. it’s very easy to convince libs, low info voters, and ows-types that America is mostly responsible for global warming, therefore we should help those “poor hungry people” in those muslim extremist, anti-American countries.
    one big global community dontcha know.

      Just for fun, I sometimes imagine myself an interviewer asking questions of Pelosi or some similar socialist idiot.

      Me: And, let’s just suppose, Nancy, that there were no more cars. They’ve been banned and nobody uses fossil fuels anymore, what will be the end result of that?

      Her: Why, the world will cool back down and everyone will be happy.

      Me: OK, and, how will people get to work?

      Her: [Silence, blank stare]

      Me: I mean, with all the cars gone and no one allowed to burn coal, oil or even use nuclear power, how will people engage in employment and care for themselves?

      Her: Well, obviously, electric cars will have to be available to everyone.

      Me: And….how would we charge those electric cars?

      Her: You plug them in, silly! (Look of utter derision)

      Me: Oh. And…where will the electricity come from then?

      Her: My, you really aren’t too bright, are you. From the power station?

      Me: But all the fossil fuel and nuclear power plants will be closed.

      Her: Yes, of course. But there will be windmills and solar power to take up the loss of burning fossil fuels.

      Me: But, it’s been proven time and again that solar and wind power are not up to the task of producing the energy that’s needed. Millions of people will be out of a job if they can’t get to work.

      Her: Well, then they will have to move to the cities, where they can use public transportation.

      Me: OK, so….let’s say that everyone moves to the cities. Where will the housing for that come from?

      Her: My, you are a curious George, aren’t you? Well, see….housing will have to be made available for all the people to work in the cities.

      Me: And what kinds of jobs will they get?

      Her: Oh, you know…regular people jobs. Cooking, cleaning up, things like that.

      Me: And at those wages, how are they to pay for anything?

      —-You can see how this would go. Her utopidiot ideas are merely camouflage for having control over people. But she really is that stupid. She’s had money all her life, has no idea how the logistics of even getting groceries works, or getting kids ready for school or cooking breakfast for that matter. And there are hundreds like her in DC and around the country who insist that the solution to Earth’s problems are just to control the people. They are huge fans of Darwin evolution yet refuse to acknowledge how that is occurring in society which is why people don’t all have jobs in the cities, or all go back to farming for a living or ride around in horses and buggies and churn butter on Saturday night while the hoot-nanny is going on on the front porch.

      She’s an idiot. Obama is also an idiot but he thinks himself quite clever which makes him also an annoying idiot.
