CIA Quietly Closes Global Warming Unit

More than three years—and no doubt a chunk of change—later, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is quietly shutting down its insignificant center dedicated to climate change.

That’s right; the scandal-plagued government agency responsible for providing national security intelligence to senior U.S. policymakers operated a special unit that focused on global warming. Known as the Center on Climate Change and National Security, it was an exclusive division led by “senior specialists.” It operated under a cloak of secrecy that rejected all public-records requests, despite President Obama’s promise to run a transparent government.

When the center was launched in 2009, the CIA said it would not address the science of climate change but rather the national security impact of phenomena such as desertification, rising sea levels, population shifts and heightened competition for natural resources. The unit was touted as an important tool that would 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.

Instead it was a big joke that accomplished nothing and wasted undisclosed amounts (it’s a national security secret) of taxpayer dollars. In fact, Americans may never know much about what the center actually did or how much cash it blew since it’s all “classified” to prevent compromising national security. At least that’s what the CIA told an intelligence historian affiliated with the National Security Archives last year in response to a records request.

Chunk of change is right.

Was watching a documentary on the contractors hired for Iraq - during and after the invasion. talk about chunks of change...

What a waste.

Video, Seen it?

Seen this video? I wrote a post about it. If you want to read it and view its comments, that post is my latest one. Oh, I'll just link to it.

meanwhile ...

.... there's actually no warming going on.

Correlation does not prove causality!

If you really believe that...

the next few decades are going to be a rude awakening for ya, buddy. Don't watch TV news in the future if you don't want to be deceived..

Hey, FT, what do you make of

Hey, FT, what do you make of HAARP? Some time ago I read there is another climate change technology, but I don't remember what its name is. I remember HAARP isn't even the technology that's changing the climate but is cover for the one that is. Know anything about climate change technology and it causing changes in climate?

As for my observation, yes, the temperatures are hotter these past six or so years than the years before then, particularly compared to temperatures in the 1990s. Same goes for air cleanliness. Dirty air is everywhere and thick. In the 90s, not so.

I know nothing of it other than

that it's supposedly still manned. I recall reading something about China using similar tactics to try and manipulate the weather during the Beijing olympics. I'm not sure if this is all possible yet, but HAARP's been at it since, what, the 60s? I don't know if it is possible even now, but I'm almost certain it could be in the near future. It does seem like a project that would've been shuttered a long time ago if it proved fruitless, though..

If they could find a way to mess with certain phenomena like jet streams, well... places like Vancouver or London could be rendered uninhabitable..

I do know for a fact that energy corporations have over the last few decades have waged a massive propaganda war to make the idea of global warming unpopular.. and it has been a statistical success.

I too know nothing about

I too know nothing about HAARP, but I suspect its in operation or at least is, as you said, still manned. Yeah, since the '60s.

As for the propaganda campaign existing, I agree. I see it not to be for or against climate change, strange as that sounds. I think the campaign is nefarious in that it's to cause chaos among people. The oligarchs play people off each other. It's how they create turmoil in society, a replacement of peace. Turmoil is division and in its success it kills and maims people while enlarging the state and adding to the police state. The oligarchs are evil people.

Aside from the division tactic, I believe climate change is happening and has been going on for at least three decades. I base my belief on conversations I've had with people of any age but especially those people who can remember the climate further back in time. The older the person, the more often I hear how different climate was then to now.

I noticed the change in climate in the 90s. I recall temperatures creeping up summer after summer, the type of heat change (from bouncing off the body to clinging onto it and sapping energy) and temperature and climate changes being drastic from one week to the next week and in some cases from one day to the next day. Those changes are more apparent now than then, too. That people don't notice those changes is beyond me.
