Barbara Boxer: Greatest Threat to National Security is… Carbon Dioxide

Al Gore is on record as calling “climate change” a greater threat to humanity than terrorism or rogue dictators with nukes, and Barbara “Ma’am” Boxer has followed suit by saying that “carbon pollution, leading to climate change, will be, over the next 20 years, the leading cause of conflict.”

And the only knock on Barbara Boxer that Carly Fiorina could make on open-mic night was about her hair? (name corrected, wrote earlier Meg Whitman said that, sorry Meg!)

If by “conflict” she means harsh opposition to the continued takeover of the U.S. from within under the guise of saving the world from a fiery death, then I suppose she’s correct — but that’s not what she means.

Boxer is saying, “Unless you want a lot of wars, support our EPA power grab!”

The real intent of course isn’t to rank climate change as being a greater threat than terrorism, but to inextricably link them as one problem and assign the blame to your SUV and dependency on the coal energy that is giving Ashley Judd the trots. It’s “blame America first” at its most twisted. “They won’t attack if you hand us billions more for clean energy and green jobs!”

Maybe Barbara Boxer believes that Al Qaeda flew planes into the World Trade Centers because they were getting too warm, but I’m certainly skeptical.

In fact, the greatest threat to national security isn’t climate change, terrorism or rogue dictators — it’s the people who are running our own government right now. If we can vote out politicians like Barbara Boxer starting this November, that’s just the kind of breath of fresh air that will help save the United States.

Update: Speaking of Barbara Boxer, according to CNN, President Obama skipped the memorial service for the workers killed on the Deepwater Horizon rig to attend a Boxer fundraiser. Hopefully Babs feels special.
