Default 5 Generals 6 Admirals on Climate Change: There will be wars over water

From six retired admirals and five retired generals:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Global warming poses a "serious threat to America's national security" and the U.S. likely will be dragged into fights over water and other shortages, top retired military leaders warn in a new report.

.....

But the instability will happen sometime, Root agreed.

"We're going to have a war over water," Root said. "There's just not going to be enough water around for us to have for us to need to live with and to provide for the natural environment."

I really can't comment on this until I read the report. Looks like it will be a fun read though. I wonder what scams the nay sayers will be accusing these retired military officers of.

Top climate scientists said the report makes sense and increased national security risk is a legitimate global warming side-effect.

CNN doing [censored] reporting like usual didn't specify who the "top scientists" were. It will be interesting to see how many top scientists either have or will endorse this report.

It's propaganda pieces like this that make me skeptical of global warming in the first place. If not for this kind of crap, I'd be right on the bandwagon. It actually kind of makes me wonder if maybe the media really is conservative and they just post liberal propaganda like this to make liberals look bad.

so if it wasn't for people talking about the ways that the effects of global warming might play out on a worldwide scale, you'd think it was true?
