Tom Friedman cites Trotsky on climate

As if any Marxist revolutionary has ever brought anything but misery to his allegedly beloved masses.

In wringing ing his hands over drought conditions and ensuing water shortages in North Africa and the Middle East (i.e., desert regions), New York Times columnist Tom Friedman writes:

… If you ask “what are the real threats to our security today,” said [resource scarcity alarmist Lester] Brown, “at the top of the list would be climate change, population growth, water shortages, rising food prices and the number of failing states in the world. As that list grows, how many failed states before we have a failing global civilization, and everything begins to unravel?”

Hopefully, we won’t go there. But, then, we should all remember that quote attributed to Leon Trotsky: “You may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you.” Well, you may not be interested in climate change, but climate change is interested in you.

Folks, this is not a hoax. We and the Arabs need to figure out — and fast — more ways to partner to mitigate the environmental threats where we can and to build greater resiliency against those where we can’t. Twenty years from now, this could be all that we’re talking about. [Emphasis added]

  1. I am often reminded of a conversation I had traveling through O’Hare Airport several years ago with my then boss. I was explaining that since “we” the American motoring public were putting “their” (The Egyptian majority population.) food in our gas tanks, it was only a matter of time before they rose up and overthrew the Mubarak regime, and the Muslim Brotherhood took over. Most of the calamities Friedman et al. see going forward are a direct result of their own actions and activities.

  2. I think he might be right about talking about this crap twenty years on. Brown eyes, but not completely full of sh*t.

  3. Disgusting Progressive propagandist. Funny, these morons would be the first ones rounded up and shot, or put in a mental hospital, if their Utopian Communist goals were achieved. The politics stay the same, only the useful idiots and victims change.
