And here's why you're only hearing about it now (and not from US media I might add..

Diana Liverman spent years as a senior climate adviser in the US. Now back in the UK, she argues for American scientists to be freed from their fear of speaking out on global warming - before it's too late

Alot of the climatic change comes from the razing of our forests. Much of this is due to overpopulation and urban sprawl. I don't have any answers for that, but I do know how we can reduce our dependancy on wood products.

Hemp can be grown for its fiber to replace wood pulp in the manufacturing of paper. According to the hemp industries association, "Hemp produces more pulp per acre than timber on a sustainable basis, and can be used for every quality of paper."

So we can reduce our dependency on wood products and spare our forests by switching to hemp fibers for the manufacturing of our paper products.

the Us has more forested land now than it did 100 years ago
marginal eastern farmland has been being returned to it's natural state for a long time now.

the purpose of these kind of military plans is to figure out the worst case scenario, and plan accordingly in case it comes up
that's why there's plans for war with canada, mexico, etc. there are a whole mess of people in the pentagon who's entire job is to think up the worst possibilities, and create plans for dealing with it.
these are military planners, not scientists, and taking the report out of it's actual context and presenting it as science is pretty assinine

for example As early as next year widespread flooding by a rise in sea levels will create major upheaval for millions.

if the seas rise more than an inch in the next year i will by every poster in this thread an alcoholic beverage of their choice. 2mm, the more likely amount of sea level increase, is not going to cause any 'widespread flooding'

we've been experiencing global warming for a while now, why is still pure conjecture, but given that the same things happening on mars currently, variations in solar radiation make the most sense at this point.

At the rate things are going it may well be by Tea-time!

Seriously though, this notion has been discounted because the gulf stream will actually heat up and maintain the heat and we're too small to build up adaquate atmospheric conditions. You need really large landmasses or high elevations to glaciate and freeze like sibera. We currenlty have neither, however we will have more quad-polar seasosn switching to far more intense versions of what we have.

The crop-devistation is likely to be catastrophic
