National Security Advisor Susan Rice has just blamed the conflict in Syria on the Obama Regimes number one enemy… Climate Change. Stating that the Syrian conflict is a result of a record breaking drought in the region, Rice has explained that it represents a menacing threat to the entire world.
You read that correctly, this National Security Advisor is truly attempting to sell the Obama Administrations narrative that climate change poses more of a threat to the world than the Islamic State and the Iranian nuclear program combined.
Calling it an advancing menace that threatens the global economy as well as the security of all nations, Rice warned that the world will plummet into conflict, disease, and despair if it is not stopped.
Today, we face no greater long-term challenge than climate change, an advancing menace that imperils so many of the other things we hope to achieve, she said according to advance text of her speech.
Rice echoed many themes promulgated by the Obama administration but ratcheted up the alarmist rhetoric to a fever pitch.
Consider the impactsto the global economy and to our shared securitywhen rising seas begin to swallow nations whole, she explained while discussing rising sea levels of as much as 20 feet.
She also suggested that the the recent floods in North and South Carolina and massive forest fires were partially a result of climate change.
While we cant say that climate change is the direct cause of any specific weather event, these are exactly the trends that we expect to see more of, if climate trends continue on their current trajectory, Rice said.
