Pentagon calls for Climate change to Destroy us, We need Al Gore, Period, Carville or Obama aside!

As you know, last week CNN analyst and Democratic political strategist James Carville says Al Gore will run for president in 2008, but he fell short of offering his endorsement of that possible campaign.

Carville, appearing Tuesday as a guest on MSNBC’s ‘Imus in the Morning’ program, said Gore’s desire to run for political office might come, not from his Oscar win, but rather from something more primative.

"Running for president is like having sex," Carville said. "You don’t do it once and forget about it. You want to do it again. He’s run for president in ‘88, he ran for president in 2000. We know he wants to be president and the stars could line up. I suspect he will get into this race."

Many of you already know I more than agree with the fact that Gore will run! It is becoming more of a reality with every passing day.

Barack Obama has now weighed in. He concedes that Al Gore entering the presidential race would seriously alter the political landscape.

The Illinois senator told The Early Show national correspondent Tracy Smith that the former vice president would be an "extraordinarily formidable" candidate if he were to join the Democratic fray, adding, "He would have as good a resume as anyone in the field, better — uh — than anybody in the field."

Even so, "I would welcome him to go anywhere he wants to go," Obama remarked. Speculation about a possible Gore candidacy has been increasing since his appearance on the Oscars. Gore's global warming documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth," earned two statuettes.
Those that have read my posts on Al Gore know I firmly believe we must have him as our President in 2008 and we must let him know how much we need him to bring us sussessfully into the future. It is so important I find it necessary tp repost this request I got from Al The request was to commit to getting ten more people to send messages to Congress demanding action to stop global warming?
Now that I know what the Pentagon says and about the real and extreme state of the environment I will reduce myself to begging if I have to.

Now the Pentagon tells Bush: climate change will destroy us and this is not a new article! Sunday February 22, 2004 The Observer:

Climate change over the next 20 years could result in a global catastrophe costing millions of lives in wars and natural disasters. A secret report, suppressed by US defense chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a 'Siberian' climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world.

The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents. 'Disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life,' concludes the Pentagon analysis. 'Once again, warfare would define human life.' The findings will prove humiliating to the Bush administration, which has repeatedly denied that climate change even exists. Experts said that they will also make unsettling reading for a President who has insisted national defence is a priority. I hate to say it but in reality he won't bat an eye.

The report was commissioned by influential Pentagon defence adviser Andrew Marshall, who has held considerable sway on US military thinking over the past three decades. Climate change 'should be elevated beyond a scientific debate to a US national security concern', say the authors, Peter Schwartz, CIA consultant and former head of planning at Royal Dutch/Shell Group, and Doug Randall of the California-based Global Business Network.
 An imminent scenario of catastrophic climate change is 'plausible and would challenge United States national security in ways that should be considered immediately', they conclude. As early as next year widespread flooding by a rise in sea levels will create major upheaval for millions. What pisses me off even more is that there are those that still ridicule Al Gore and call his movie "a Convenient Lie"

Last week the Bush administration came under heavy fire from a large body of respected scientists who claimed that it cherry-picked science to suit its policy agenda and suppressed studies that it did not like. Jeremy Symons, a former whistleblower at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), said that suppression of the report for four months was a further example of the White House trying to bury the threat of climate change. Please read the whole report!

Knowing thos makes it more important than ever to have Al Gore at the helm of America in 2008. He is the only one with the unique qualifications to correct this ship we call America into the future. He has the unique qualifications to help steer America and the world at this most critical time. The dire state of the environment and dealing with that is even more important than the daunting task of trying to clean up the many messes the irresponsible Bush has created.

I happen to think it is all an impossible task and the environment along with much of what Bush has set in motion will not be controled and will be playing out for years to come. Believing that I firmly believe that the stabilizing Demeanor of Al Gore is needed for strength and support in the future.
