Quote Of The Day

"Understand, climate change did not cause the conflicts we see around the world. Yet what we also know is that severe drought helped to create the instability in Nigeria that was exploited by the terrorist group Boko Haram. It’s now believed that drought and crop failures and high food prices helped fuel the early unrest in Syria, which descended into civil war in the heart of the Middle East."

Except the weather in Nigeria hasn't changed all that much for quite some times. This anti-intellectual shtick of assigning climate change to all sorts of global problems and issues is rather discomforting and disturbing. Who in their right logical mind would correlate Boko Haram's rise and violence to climate? It's almost as if we've become incapable of understanding such organizations for what they are.

I'm getting the distinct feeling Obama, faced with an uncooperative Congress while mired in a state of lame-duckness, is just gonna speak from the heart. And as we saw with his speech to Coast Guard graduates, it's immature as it is unprofessional as it is irresponsible.

I mean, to flat out claim climate change erodes national security is waaaay out there.

Too much for me anyway.
