Did global warming cause San Bernardino shooting? Liberal narratives more loony than the shooters themselves

Bernie Sanders

(NaturalNews) Over the summer, the Pentagon released a report naming one of the top national security threats to the United States for the foreseeable future: Climate change.

"Global climate change will have wide-ranging implications for U.S. national security interests over the foreseeable future because it will aggravate existing problems — such as poverty, social tensions, environmental degradation, ineffectual leadership, and weak political institutions — that threaten domestic stability in a number of countries," the report, which was requested by the Senate, noted.

It added that climate change is an "urgent and growing threat to our national security" and blames it for "increased natural disasters" that U.S. troops will increasingly be forced to face.

Doubling down on stupid

No serious defense expert really believes that. And, as noted by The Washington Times, the assessment is not backed up by a body of data:

"The report's reference to 'increased natural disasters' is not backed by several studies. The United Nations' latest report on global warming said there was insufficient evidence to say there have been increased storm, flood or drought activity. A climate center in Colorado said its study of decades of weather patterns failed to show any increase in tornadoes, hurricanes or other natural disasters."

Anyone who's been paying attention knows that President Obama is "Mr. Climate Change," claiming, incorrectly, during one State of the Union Address that "14 of the 15 warmest years on record have fallen in the first 15 years of this century." In reality, there has been no warming trend at all for nearly 19 years.

But it's not just the Pentagon and Obama that have gone off the deep end over this climate change hoax – it's being perpetuated on the presidential campaign trail as well.

"Independent" Sen. Bernie Sanders, running for the Democratic nomination, has actually blamed terrorism on climate change, even doubling down on the stupid when given an opportunity to change his stance.

As reported by The Hill in online editions:

"Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Sunday reiterated his claim that climate change will lead to terrorism by destabilizing regions affected by droughts, floods, and other natural disasters."

So the San Bernardino jihadis that just murdered 14 Americans did so, not because they hate the West or are at war with our culture and ideology; they did so because, well, climate change.

"The reason is pretty obvious: If we are going to see an increase in drought and flood and extreme weather disturbances as a result of climate change, what that means is that peoples all over the world are going to be fighting over limited natural resources," Sanders said on CBS's Face the Nation in November.

Paris, too

"If there is not enough water, if there is not enough land to grow your crops, then you're going to see migrants of people fighting over land that will sustain them, and that will lead to international conflict," he added.

But "international conflict" isn't the same as "terrorism" – the latter of which is a violent form of political action. And in terms of the climate, the regions of the Earth where terrorism and violent jihad are being fomented have been hot, dry and largely inhospitable for eons.

No matter to a true believer like Sanders. The self-proclaimed Democratic socialist also labeled the Paris attacks – in which 130 people were killed by ISIS-funded jihadis – as an early example of climate-induced violent extremism.

"Well what happens in, say, Syria... is that when you have drought, when people can't grow their crops, they're going to migrate into cities," Sanders said.

"And when people migrate into cities and they don't have jobs, there's going to be a lot more instability, a lot more unemployment, and people will be subject to the types of propaganda that al Qaeda and ISIS are using right now," he added.

"So where you have discontent, where you have instability, that's where problems arise, and certainly, without a doubt, climate change will lead to that."

Sanders first raised eyebrows with his absurd claim during the first Democratic presidential debate, which opportunity he also used to assert that climate change was our greatest national security threat.
