Department of Homeland Security Focusing on Global Warming

Posted by Steve Markowitz on July 10, 2015

In another sign of government gone wild, The Hill has reported that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is giving high priority to “protecting” the American people from global warming.  DHS’s quarterly report report lists climate change as one of its top priorities saying it “present major areas of homeland security risk”.

Evidently DHS has greater concern about the potential effects of climate change than ISIS.  No wonder the terrorists are growing in strength throughout the world.

The Department of Homeland Security started under the Bush Administration in response to the 9/11 attacks.  It has since grown to approximately 240,000 employees with an annual budget of nearly $40 billion.  These huge numbers are just another indication of how government agencies grow after being seeded.  These agencies become self-perpetuating, as they grab for power and taxpayer funds.  DHS’s jump from protecting America from terrorists to potential climate change affects is a prime example of the corruption of government.

There are various arguments that can be made that would indicate that the theory of man-made global warming is suspect.  However, assuming for the moment that man is radically changing the environment, one indication that science is not being appropriately used in the discussion is the one sided conclusions offered concerning the potential climate change.  All effects are promoted as negative, which in itself is absurd.  Any climate change has positive and negative impacts on different parts of the globe.  To suggest otherwise is an indication of the fallacy of the science and the bias of the argument.
