Pentagon Warns Increase In Terrorism Due To Global Warming

can we give them an A+ for creativity?

For the past few weeks we have seen stock markets surge as macro-economic data has collapsed around the world. The 'excuse' given for this apparent dichotomy - weather. But now it seems "weather" is to blame for other problems in the world too. As Russia Today reports, in its latest Quadrennial Defense Review, the US Department of Defense (DoD), stressed threats to global stability and American hegemony posed by climate change warning that that an erratic climate will likely cause increased “terrorist activity,” among other impacts..."The pressures caused by climate change will influence resource competition while placing additional burdens on economies, societies, and governance institutions around the world...these effects are threat multipliers."

have they warned us about the

have they warned us about the increase in terrorism likely due to their bombing campaigns?

.. or are "terrorism" warnings just some marketing scam to usher the public this way and that?

This isn't even the most ridiculous case of climate change

Fear mongering in the past month.

Global warming will "cause" 22,000 murders and 180,000 rapes by 2099? These people are fucking insane. How much koolaid does one have to drink before they can make these fantastic leaps of logic that completely disregard simple concepts like the difference between correlation and causality?

"Retardation" is a reduction in range of scale.

if we can agree on that..
then we need to next discuss "conditioning" yes, I do that. (A/C?)

yes. I am very good at controls. (electrical)

For creativity? No way. I give them an A for dumbing down the

skoos enough so people will buy this garbage.

Undo what Wilson did

Is war predictable?

2000 years of war analyzed. 11 year, 22 year and 54 year.

is the Climate erratic?

I used to like war movies. if I watch them today, it causes anxiety.
every time, I see a bomb go off...or a bullet shot.
my mind also sees a dollar sign, like in a sick video.

it would seem to me that climate is an algorithm.

I have not watched the video yet, (I am on metered bandwidth)

but if there is a pattern in war cycles... my mind wonders if that can be correlated to the lifespan of paper money systems.

Ray seems to think there is a cyclic pattern

But whether fiat money follows the cycles or is designed to take advantage of the natural rhythms is what I wonder.

Are we doomed to war because of sunspots? Or are we free to avoid war?

Free includes debt-free!

the Golden mean and the golden ratio come to mind.

yes, there ARE consistent patterns.
peace, gold and Love.
I will contact you soon.
I really like your ideas about selenium and copper.

I am beginning to suspect that chemistry, biological s and plasma are related.
if magnetism is not confined to minerals..
why not?

it is late for me here and spring is also here.
I will not lose contact.
