Global Warming a National Security Threat?

There is no "global warming" hence there is no "national security threat" being caused by this mystical phenomena. Panetta is just another Obama appointed idiot.

Yesterday, while speaking to the Environmentalist Defense Fund, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta announced that ‘man-made’ Global Warming is now an issue of national security. Any reasonable person might ask why, and Panetta explains:

“The area of climate change has a dramatic impact on national security. Rising sea levels, severe droughts, the melting of the polar caps, the more frequent and devastating natural disasters all raise demand for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.”

Rising sea levels will cause the United States to spend more money in aid, thus hurting our national security? Panetta fails to connect the dots...
