President Obama declared this week that “climate change” is a greater threat to our military than radical Islamists. He expressed his distress over rising sea level at our Virginia seaside military installations. This would truly be a serious threat, if true. It’s not.
Yes, there is apparent rise in sea level in the Tidewater region, but this is not a case of rising sea level due to melting ice, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It is a matter of land subsidence. Let’s go straight to the scientific report titled “Land Subsidence and Apparent Sea Level Rise I the South Chesapeake Bay Region”, by Jack Eggleston and Jason Pope.
Sadly, as a consequence of a nationwide epidemic of ignorance reinforced by a spirit of deception, our fellow citizens believe the lie, ignore the science. This begs the question: Is our president a liar or is he deceived? Regardless, his belief system is truly a greater threat to national security than the sum of radical jihadists wishing to destroy us.
Why does Obama overstate anthropogenic climate change/global warming? He does it for its propaganda value.
“To attract people, to win over people to that which I have realised as being true, that is called propaganda. In the beginning there is the understanding, this understanding uses propaganda as a tool to find those men, that shall turn understanding into politics. Success is the important thing. Propaganda is not a matter for average minds, but rather a matter for practitioners. It is not supposed to be lovely or theoretically correct. I do not care if I give wonderful, aesthetically elegant speeches, or speak so that women cry. I speak differently in the provinces than I do in Berlin, and when I speak in Bayreuth, I say different things from what I say in the Pharus Hall. That is a matter of practice, not of theory. We do not want to be a movement of a few straw brains, but rather a movement that can conquer the broad masses. Propaganda should be popular, not intellectually pleasing. It is not the task of propaganda to discover intellectual truths.” – Paul Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s propaganda minister
All the gibberish about global warming, now called climate change, is propaganda to “conquer the broad masses”.
