Why do climate denialists hate America?

Midnight update: WaPo has an article by national security correspondent Walter Pincus on A2 of Thursday's high-fiber edition: Climate Issues Tied to U.S. Security

Those wacko commie enviro-Nazis are at it again. Less than a year after the CNA Corporation published a report on the security implications of global warming (as noted at the time in PM Update), an official report from the National Intelligence Council, "a center of strategic thinking within the US Government, reporting to the Director of National Intelligence (DNI)," has expounded further on that theme. In testimony (21-page pdf) today before a joint hearing of the House Committees on Intelligence and on Energy Independence and Global Warming, council chairman Dr. Thomas Fingar presented the unclassifed portion of the report's key observations. The Republicans' response, expressed by Rep. Issa? More drilling!

Good post. I am monitoring this stuff too. Have you heard of my project about POLAR CITIES for survivors of global warming? I figure we might need them around 2500 or so, and I have written to Fingar about this. of course, no reply. But i am sure the USA govt and other govts are already planning their own polar cities for their own VIPs and powerful families, leaving the rest of us out in the cold, well, it won't be cold, it will be HOT. 500 years.

Wonder if you can take a look at my images, created by Deng Cheng Hong in Taiwan, and Lovelock has seen them and approves of them and told me IT MAY VERY WELL HAPPEN AND SOON.

Maybe you can blog one day on polar cities? Please do. Pro or con. I am curious to know your POV on all this.

As for Fingar's testimoney, he did not mention POLAR CITIES at all, but you can bet the Homeland Sec dept already has plans in place for polar cities in Alaska -- Juneau, Fairbanks, Anchroage, Nome....
