Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

Anti-climate change propaganda has shifted public opinion, even as it’s failed to dent the scientific consensus.

That success was bound to change, since the laws of physics aren’t subject to public opinion. Now, the public’s view may be aligning closer with that of climate scientists. Earlier, I cited a recent Yale poll in which 56% of Republicans supported “regulating CO2 as a pollutant.”

A recent NYT/Stanford/Resources for the Future survey asked Republicans, “If nothing is done to reduce global warming in the future, how serious of a problem do you think it will be for the United States?”

21% said very serious

33% said somewhat serious

23% said not very

only 22% said not serious

Good. Since Republicans oppose big government and support personal responsibility, we need them to find responsible, free-market solutions to the global warming problem.

It is no secret that a lot of climate-change research is subject to opinion, that climate models sometimes disagree even on the signs of the future changes (e.g. drier vs. wetter future climate). The problem is, only sensational exaggeration makes the kind of story that will get politicians' - and readers' - attention. So, yes, climate scientists might exaggerate, but in today's world, this is the only way to assure any political action and thus more federal financing to reduce the scientific uncertainty.

Sadly, it’s true that the Pentagon has created crises before. For example, the 2nd Gulf of Tonkin incident. In this case, however, the Pentagon’s reports are supported by a large number of non-military sources, including:

34 national science academies

97% of the most-published and most-peer-reviewed climate scientists

The IPCC, which has studied the issue more than anybody else

Since this report has such wide scientific support, I conclude that the eleven retired generals and admirals who conducted it were motivated by genuine concern for America’s well-being. If we were as patriotic as they, we would take responsibility for our own emissions.

The military has considered global warming a national security threat since 2006. At that time, the Center for Naval Analysis asked 11 retired generals and admirals to assess the threat to national security.

Those 11 generals and admirals reported, “Projected climate change poses a serious threat to America’s national security.”

Global warming poses a serious threat to us, but that doesn’t mean we have to pay more taxes and increase the size of government. We can meet the challenge by taking personal responsibility for our carbon emissions.

If we refuse to take personal responsibility, we will create a crisis and big government never lets a crisis go to waste.

the NASA press release failed to mention…that the alleged ‘record’ amounted to an increase over 2010, the previous ‘warmest year’, of just two-hundredths of a degree—or 0.02C. The margin of error is said by scientists to be approximately 0.1C—several times as much.

According to the Pentagon’s “Climate Change Adaptation Roadmap,” issued back in October, global warming threatens or national security, and may even cause an increase in terrorism.

The report says global warming may limit supplies of food and water, flood folks out, spread disease, cause electrical shortages, disrupt commerce, and lead to a lot of homeless people. These effects could undermine governments. Here’s where the terrorism comes in.

The report concludes: “These gaps in governance can create an avenue for extremist ideologies and conditions that foster terrorism.”

See page four.

Those who care about America’s national security should be concerned about global warming.
