Pentagon Climate Change Report Alarming

UK newspaper The Observer obtained a secret report by the Pentagon that projects a horrific future for the planet due to the influence of global climate change. According to the report, As early as 2020 major European cities will be lost beneath the sea and the climate of the UK will resemble the current climate of Siberia.

Pentagon adviser Andrew Marshall commissioned The report, which paints an apocalyptic future consisting of anarchy, nuclear threats, dwindling food and water, limited access to energy–a collective threat that dwarfs terrorism. “Disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life,” the report says. “Once again, warfare would define human life.” The report also recommends that climate change “be elevated beyond a scientific debate to a US national security concern.”

UN Says Warming Threatens Fish Stocks

PARIS (AP) — Major world commercial fish stocks could collapse within decades as global warming compounds damage from pollution and overfishing, U.N. officials said Friday.

A U.N. Environment Program report details new research on how rising ocean surface temperature and other climate changes are affecting the fishing industry. It says that more than 2.6 billion people get most of their protein from fish.

“You overlay all of this and you are potentially putting a death nail in the coffin of the world fisheries,” Achim Steiner, head of the program, said in a telephone news conference from Monaco.

The research sheds new light on an undersea flushing mechanism that helps renew fish stocks in three-quarters of the world’s primary commercial fishing grounds. Report author Christian Nellemann said global warming is disrupting this circulation.

Dead zones off Oregon and Washington likely tied to global warming, study says

Although scientists continue to amass data and tease out the details, all signs in the search for a cause point to stronger winds associated with a warming planet.

If this theory holds up, it means that global warming and the build-up of heat-trapping gases are bringing about oceanic changes beyond those previously documented: a rise in sea level, more acidic ocean water and the bleaching of coral reefs.
