Pentagon Warns Increase In Terrorism Due To Global Warming | Zero Hedge

For the past few weeks we have seen stock markets surge as macro-economic data has collapsed around the world. The 'excuse' given for this apparent dichotomy - weather. But now it seems "weather" is to blame for other problems in the world too. As Russia Today reports, in its latest Quadrennial Defense Review, the US Department of Defense (DoD), stressed threats to global stability and American hegemony posed by climate change warning that that an erratic climate will likely cause increased “terrorist activity,” among other impacts..."The pressures caused by climate change will influence resource competition while placing additional burdens on economies, societies, and governance institutions around the world...these effects are threat multipliers."

Threats to leave the EU only damage the economy

Threats to leave the EU only damage the economy | The Eutopian Nightmare | Scoop.it
As our interview with the Business Secretary, Vince Cable, makes clear today, his Conservative coalition partners – if that is not too strong a term for the ministers Mr Cable cohabits with so uncomfortably – are indeed guilty of “serious irresponsibility”. The misdemeanour in question is economic: risking jobs and the living standards of everyone in Britain for what amounts to a political stunt. Even the Prime Minister and Chancellor don’t really believe that Britain would go so far as to leave the EU; indeed, they are not willing even to pretend. If they were, they might just extract some concession from our EU partners. Without such a realistic threat there is only downside – and for Britain much more than the rest of Europe.

Let’s call it what it is: this extortionate demand is typical of the EU and a direct outcome of their incompetence and irresponsibility.
