Secure American Future: a Program of the American Security Project

"Scientists have been able to reconstruct several millennia worth of atmospheric records by examining ice cores drawn from miles-deep ice sheets.1 These records show a constant fluctuation of CO2 levels, ranging from roughly 200 parts per million (PPM) to roughly 300 PPM. Over an ice core record of 800,000 years, scientists have never found any levels significantly higher than 300 (PPM) -- until now. In the 1950s, CO2 levels were recorded above 300 PPM. They have risen consistently since, and are now approaching 400 PPM.2"--Climate Change and Consequences

Secure American Future is a program of the American Security Project.

Secure American Future describes its mission this way:

We believe that global warming is a real and growing threat to our national security – and we are committed to taking action before it's too late.

In order to raise public awareness of this threat and create a movement to take action, we are building an active, bipartisan coalition of scientists, foreign policy analysts, diplomats, military experts, retired generals, elected officials – and concerned Americans.

Continued inaction could result in the destruction of agricultural production and water supplies, dramatic political and military upheaval, and the dislocation of huge segments of the world's population.

What could that mean for America? Less secure borders. Failed states in regions of the world where terrorism flourishes. New and broader interventions by our military.

We resolve to face unafraid this dangerous threat, and to take the necessary action to protect American security interests. We deal in facts and scientific analysis, not political rhetoric.

Check out their link on climate change and its consequences. The Pentagon also views climate change as a threat to our national security.

In the U.K., special NETCU police are probably closing in on the culprits who hacked into the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit (CRU) in order to discredit the scientists.

Some scientists believe that dinosaurs may have fallen victim to climate change, although James Inhofe is still ranting away in the Senate about the "great hoax of global warming." This arrogant moron thinks that he knows more than the scientists.
