White House: Global Warming the Cause of Poverty, Terrorism, and Allergies

The White House is declaring that the reason we have poverty in the world, terrorism, and even dry, itchy eyes and noses is that the planet is experiencing global warming that’s been caused by conservatives and the evil Koch brothers. The data might show that the global warming has slowed to a statistical halt in the past two decades, but in politics, the facts don’t matter. They’re always pushing some kind of agenda for their own personal and political gain.

The White House released a report on manmade global warming and its detrimental effects. The Washington Examiner reported:

“Climate change is contributing to extreme weather, wildfires, and drought, and that rising temperatures can lead to more smog and more allergens in the air we breathe, meaning more kids are exposed to the triggers that can cause asthma attacks,” said the White House.

The highlights from “Findings from Select Federal Reports: THE NATIONAL SECURITY IMPLICATIONS OF A CHANGING CLIMATE.”

“With climate change, certain types of extreme weather events and their impacts, including extreme heat, heavy downpours, floods, and droughts, have become more frequent and/or intense. In addition, warming is causing sea level to rise and glaciers and Arctic sea ice to melt.

These and other aspects of climate change are disrupting people’s lives and damaging certain sectors of the economy. The national security implications of climate change impacts are far reaching, as they may exacerbate existing stressors, contributing to poverty, environmental degradation, and political instability, providing enabling environments for terrorist activity abroad. For example, the impacts of climate change on key economic sectors, such as agriculture and water, can have profound effects on food security, posing threats to overall stability.

Predictably, the report went on to connect global warming to every single adverse condition and phenomenon you can imagine, climate related or not.

The science of global warming or “climate change” is not nearly as shocking as the politics of global warming. The climate goes through long cycles, much like we go through seasons during the year.

But when politics is attached to the science, certain political groups get blamed for the weather. And not just the bad weather, but terrorism, poverty, allergies and asthma attacks.
