EPA chief: Global warming promotes terrorism

Egad.

Politico reports,

Environmental ills such as pollution and climate change can help foster anti-Americanism and terrorism in underdeveloped nations, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson and other Obama administration officials said Friday.

“Factors like poverty and resource shortages can lead to instability,” Jackson said at the National Council for Science and the Environment’s National Conference on Environment and Security. She noted that commerce, transportation and recreation now affect the rapidly filling planet, which has limited natural resources.

As a result, she said, the U.S. faces “both an opportunity and a responsibility to ensure that economic and environmental progress reaches into the most economically challenged and environmentally polluted communities around the globe”…

“The reason 50,000 children died there in Somalia and not in Ethiopia and Kenya, [which] had environmental conditions that were just as bad if not worse, was because you had a terrorist group in charge of part of Somalia,” he said. “So you can take this tour around the world, and there are dozens of examples where the integration of environmental risk factors, human insecurity and weak governance lead to direct national security consequences for our country and the whole world.”

  1. Last Week we were again reminded of Tree Hugger’s Lies .
    In 1984 Al Gore said Alaska would be mostly melted and the east coast would be in dated with Ocean water up to 6 Miles inland .His Movie again showed Manhattan under Water . The Ocean here is Va is up .0078 of One Inch in the last 12 Years . We have also leaned the Polar bear Population is growing as well .
    The Fed agent who said that only fly over the Bay in July (30 Minutes ) 2001 .. is now in Fed Court put on leave explaining his Lie .
    Tree hug’s are still pushing .
    Alaska had 121 Ft of Snow in 8 Days and has already recorded it’s Coldest Winter in 40 years .
    3 Major Cities in Alaska had to have 3 of the largest Ice Breakers in the World get Food and Fuels with the Help of Russia .
    I Find it interesting never mentioned during the Mini Ice age from 1337 to 1847 .
    The CO2 Levels are higher than today .

  2. If that is the case. Ms. Jackson should go to China, India and Pakistan where most of the pollution is generated. The reason Somalia has such a high mortality is the Islamic terrorists who run the country. We learned our lesson during Clinton’s administration. You cannot help a nation controlled by Islamic extremist who want to return to the 4th and 5th century.

  3. The truth is out! “The measly “global warming’ of the last 15 years is one story and another story about global warming is found in looking at the last 100 years. When the 100 year span is broken into 50-year segments, one ending 2011 and the other ending 1961, the myth of dangerous global warming from human CO2 emissions really starts to unravel.” Refer: [thanks to Climatedepot.com]

  4. lisa jackson, cass sunstein, john holdren, eric holder, valerie jarrett, steven chu, van jones, the chick who loves mao, and on and on and on. we are in so much trouble and 2012 election will be our last chance.

  5. Someone should undertake to compile a list of the outrageous and unfounded statements this foolish woman has issued, something along the lines of Warmlist. It would make for entertaining reading, and might be helpful in a future legal action.

  6. What??? The EPA is now The Department of State? My, what breadth of learning Jackass, er, Jackson displays, from Global Warming Scientist to Senior Foreign Policy Analyst.

  7. Obviously, the EPA is promoting the same tactics and strategy as the Obama administration. Israelis and war lobbyists are using to provoke Iran into war.

  8. Denying easy access to electricity is terrorism!

  9. The world has turned upside down. Commisioner Jackson is promoting the policies that guarentee poverty and resource shortages. I agree that will cause an increase in terrorism. She should be held accountable and put on trial for treason with her compatriots at the Hague.
