Pentagon Drops Climate Change From Global Threat List

The Pentagon is getting stupider under Trump. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“The Trump administration has dropped climate change from a list of global threats in a new national security strategy the president unveiled on Monday.

Instead, Trump’s NSS paper emphasised the need for the US to regain its economic competitiveness in the world.

That stance represents a sharp change from the Obama administration’s NSS, which placed climate change as one of the main dangers facing the nation and made building international consensus on containing global warming a national security priority.

White House officials said on Sunday that the Trump NSS was the culmination of 11 months of collaboration between all the leading security, foreign policy and economic agencies of government. The exclusion of climate change as a national security threat appears, however, to conflict with views previously expressed by the defense secretary, James Mattis.”*

  1. It's funny how these climate zealots have such faith in their belief of failed predictions and selective science. Maybe the church of TYT can get a tax exemption for peddling their climate cult nonsense on a daily basis.

  2. Donald is truly a super-genius. The way to solve the country's most pressing problems is to simply declare that they don't exist.

  3. Trees are the answer. Trees turn CO2 into oxygen. Trees keep us alive through CO2. Yet deforestation continues & Climate funding is focused only around 2% on deforestation. Carbon tax isnt the answer, trees are.

  4. TYT I like your channel but do you really have to put Trump in your thumbnail??? OVERKILL for the eyes💣💥

  5. Climate change = first white Christmas in Portland and Seattle for 9 years. Also first white Christmas in Boston in 8 years.

  6. Climate change has to do with sun cycles.
    Whats coming in the next few decades is global cooling, and its not becouse we have taxed the shit out of the world.
    Sun cycles

  7. Well, maybe under Trump (just a hypothetical) more new nuclear plants will be built and old ones will re refurbished or decommissioned. I don't think this will happen but it would be nice if it did.

  8. as a stupid European can u explain to me what "clean Cole" should mean ??? I only know the way we get it out of the ground . and that way destroy our landscape

  9. There IS an Anti-growth energy agenda. It's called "Big Oil clinging desperately to a glutted market and doing everything possible to shut down energy innovation".

  10. I'm confused? You mean toxic gas from lithium batteries? Because CO2 isn't a toxic gas, you're breathing it out right now?

    When I was in elementary school, they taught me about the carbon cycle and photosynthesis. I really can't remember the lecture where the teacher said CO2 was poison. They just said CO2 was made into sugar and cellulose by plants, and that CO2 was the essential medium to transfer the sun's energy into the food web.

  11. So it's freezing record cold where i live right now and I'm not supposed to say anything because weather and climate are different?

    But if there is a record hot day, or a hurricane, then OMGAWD Climate Apocalypse 2012!!!!!!

    Al Gore promised me that snow wouldn't exist by now, yet I'm freezing my arse off here.

    So much for the promise of global warming.

    I mean politicians wouldn't lie about the Apocalypse just to trick people into paying carbon tax? especially when there is no realistic alternative to carbon based energy, now would they?

  12. How to trick people to pay higher taxes:

    Step 1: Tell them the Apocalypse is coming

    Step 2: Tell them the only way to save humanity is to pay higher taxes

    Step 3: ???

    Step 4: Profit

    Step 5: Repeat

  13. Cry me a river libtards, Climate change A.K.A GLOBAL WARMING is global propaganda to put american citizens and other sovereign nations under international laws by un-elected career politicians. These pricks have been exposed. Cenk is a souless Anti-American bastard and TyT and staff are scam artist for a centralized global government under the guise of caring. But pretend outrage and being phony frauds is what these socialist do. Now go hit on a 14 year old and tell me how much you hate red skins Cenk, you racist hypocrite !

  14. Conservatives. The true regressives.

    "Look, we harnessed the immense power of the sun and are able to capture it's energy through these panels."
    "Can I burn this piece of coal instead?"
    "Behold, we are able to catch the horrifying power of the wind and generate electricity through these turbines."
    "I just want to burn this lump of coal instead."
    "We tamed a waterfall and and give light to an entire town!"
    "I have a stick. Does it turn to coal if I burn it?"

  15. Out of all the people that could have run trump is in the small few of worst people, and this is a super small percentage, he wants to hurt people and the world, repeat he wants to hurt people and the world on purpose he does not want to help anyone. I would guess there are only a few thousand as evil as him in the world maybe less.
