Just An…other Inconvenient Truth

George tells us the greatest threat to “civilization” is “global terrorism”.

Al tells us it’s “global warming and climate change”.

They’re both either in complete denial or simply lying to promote the interests and agenda they both represent, which are basically one and the same.

The greatest threats to humanity are not “global warming” or “global terrorism”. They are militarism and overpopulation.

Terrorism and “global warming” are the byproducts of these core problems.

True leaders don’t promote and dramatize problems, they search out solutions and build the necessary consensus to provide for the means to implement them.

Thus far the war in Iraq has cost a minimum of 338 billion dollars.

Had U.S. policy been instead to subsidize energy conservation, wind power, solar systems and geothermal heating and cooling domestically rather than seek the military conquest and economic domination of the relatively few countries with the last remaining large domestic reserves of cheap oil; how much “green” electricity might we now be generating with the tens of thousands of commercial wind turbines that could have been subsidized with the same borrowed capitol that has been squandered on the occupation of Iraq and for what?

“They’ve” known for 50 years that oil production would peak and then decline globally, same for natural gas and eventually coal.

You simply can’t bake a bigger hydrocarbon pie.

The answer for sustained or increased energy use and production lies in nuclear power and or renewable alternatives.

There are but three options:

Alternative sources of energy production, we all live on less or less of us live.

Take a hard look at where the bulk of the expenditures and technological efforts are today and have been for decades regarding planning and building for the future and you shouldn’t have any difficulty determining what the long-term U.S. policy objective is when considering which of these three strategies the policy makers have placed our largest investments.

The key global problem is the amount of manpower, material and resources devoted to militarization, rather than rational solutions.

The causes both Bush and Gore are trumpeting as “the problem” are interconnected and serve as alibis for stopgap solutions that exacerbate rather than solve the core issue.

Reduction or strict limits on CO2 emissions will result in reduced economic activity in both developed and developing nations.

Reduction in economic activity leads to decreased social justice and equality. This becomes the driving motivator for “terrorism”.

Increased poverty and reduced opportunity inhibits efforts and incentive to reduce fertility rates and the subsequent increase in population is the core problem.

Redirection of the vast amount of manpower, economic wealth and resources dedicated towards both the external militarization and the internal policing of the world’s population to support this increasing social injustice towards real and lasting solutions is humanities very last hope.

That my friends is the real “Inconvenient Truth”.

Global warming is real, global terrorism is not, at least not as depicted in the media. Nice try to confuse the matters though!

I’m neither confused nor trying to confuse.

The core global problems are overpopulation and the amount of manpower, material and resources devoted to militarization, rather than rational solutions.

The causes both Bush and Gore are trumpeting as “the problem” are interconnected and serve as alibis for temporary solutions that exacerbate rather than solve the core issues.

Reduction or strict limits on CO2 emissions result in reduced economic activity in both developed and developing nations.

The recommendations made for action in Gore’s recent film, An Inconvenient Truth fail to address the fundamental problem endangering the planet. The rapid growth of human population and limited resources.

There are but three options: Alternative sources of energy production, we all live on less or less of us live.

The exaggerated threat of “global warming” is the liberal justification for this last policy option.

Redirection of the vast amount of manpower, economic wealth and resources dedicated to both external militarization and the internal policing of the world’s population to support this increasing social injustice towards real and lasting solutions is humanities last best hope.

That’s not The Plan though, and that my friends is the real Inconvenient Truth.

_The greatest threats to humanity are not “global warming” or “global terrorism”. They are militarism and overpopulation. _

What lunacy.

Democracy’s army has that militarism thing covered. While dictators are dying out slowly, there will still be the odd one here and there, but why are they a bigger threat today than a few decades ago?

Yes N Korea is a night mare run by militarists, and there are a few others like Syria and Cuba but they are a dying breed and represent no real threat for the future.

The biggest threat doesn’t come from countries, it comes from terror orgs.

Yet terrorism is only a threat to the few misfortunate enough be murdered by them. The only real terrorist threat left in the world are the Islamo-fascsists as we can see, after the pummeling Coalition forces gave them they are not too anxious to fight the West any more.

The real and only threat to our futures is the present and real threat of global warming. And along with that threat are the glovbal warming deniers who threaten to slow down any real action to combat it.

Overpopulation? Yes that too is a big problem, especially with the West’s propensity to try and help by worsening the problem. Over-population has a built in mechanism to use our solutions to make the problem worse.

I help stop overpopulation by killing fat people slowly.

Aren’t you proud Izzums?

“I help stop overpopulation by killing fat people slowly”

McDoanlds is the AIDS of the 21st Century.

Speaking of Food as a Weapon this is a great opportunity to see how events in the Persian Gulf may soon play out to “solve” the overpopulation problem. Don’t Waste It

Holy Cow Junta, how distressing for you to get this kind of feedback. I definitely agree that the problem is militarism — but how is the infection getting in? Where did it come from and why is it being so intractable?

We’re not going to be able to use common sense. We’re dealing with a third estate that doesn’t have the kind of mind you need to think through a problem. This is the work of the Corporate Mass Media. I don’t know how much is TV technology per se (in lieu of textual literacy and the kind of coding and decoding that entails and the content itself.

Are you familiar with Dave Grossman’s work?

How many of these could our domestic energy industry have online today if our federal government had utilized the 1.6 trillion expended thus far on their “war on terror” and used it instead to subsidize the rapid conversion of our energy industry away from hydrocarbons to wind power?

“Big Al” Gore has been accumulating wealth at a rate exceeding $1,000,000.00 a month since losing his 2000 presidential bid.

Sometimes when you lose, you win.

Remember Gore’s warning of paycheck bias from An Inconvenient Truth?

Gore stands to become a near instant billionaire, if and when the U.S. joins the rest of the world currently endorsing radical cuts in CO2 emissions and adopts legislation mandating these cuts domestically.

Anthropogenic “global warming” isn’t simply the result of the addition of CO2 to the atmosphere; additionally there is new evidence that suggests that the theoretical runaway CO2 induced warming that has been computer modeled will not happen.

The joke may be on all of U.S.

And Gore has leveraged a position to continue laughing all the way to the bank.

Sometimes no Peace
