Report: War on Warming may be only way to dodge World War IV
Remember the good old days, when every time you turned around the government was waging a war on something? The War on Drugs, the War on Poverty, the War on Terror? Everything but a War on War.
Now a new report by the CNA Corporation, an Alexandria, Va.-based national security research firm, suggests we may need to declare a War on Warming or we could be facing World War IV. That’s according to a treehugger.com story, which reports some analysts believe World War III already happened (must have missed that one –- see comments at end of the treehugger story).
Regardless, the report indicates the biggest source of conflict will be people fighting over natural resources in areas made uninhabitable by warming and drought, or, conversely, fighting over newly habitable areas in formerly arctic regions.
Or perhaps people in Colorado battling oil companies for the right to keep their lawns green in the Denver metro area versus the unquenchable thirst of energy development on the Western Slope.
