Guardian / leaked Canadian Government memo
Story submission by Eric Worrall
The Guardian has published excerpts of what it claims is an internal Canadian government memo, which suggests that the Canadian government is far more worried about Climate extremists, than Climate Change.
According to the Guardian;
“The US security establishment views climate change as real and a dangerous threat to national security. But Canada takes a very different view, according to a secret intelligence memo prepared by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).
The memo, stamped “Canadian eyes only”, repeatedly casts doubt on the causes of climate change – the burning of fossil fuels – and its potential threat.
The 44-page intelligence assessment of Canada’s environmental protest movement was prepared for the government of Stephen Harper, who is expected to roll out new anti-terror legislation.
In the memo, obtained by Greenpeace and seen by the Guardian, the RCMP repeatedly departs from the conclusions of an overwhelming majority of scientists – and the majority of elected leaders in the international arena – that climate change is a growing threat to global security.
Instead, the memo on the “anti-Canada petroleum movement” presents continued expansion of oil and gas production as an inevitability, and repeatedly casts doubt on the causes and consequences of climate change.”
The memo, at least the excerpts published by the Guardian, suggest that the green extremists try to avoid casualties when conducting criminal acts. But since the radical greens have no problem with using improvised explosive devices, arson, sabotage, theft and break and enter in pursuit of their anti-petroleum agenda, a credible threat exists to the safety of both the members of the groups conducting illegal acts, and to oil workers who operate the facilities targeted by the green terrorists.
The fact that this internal memo was leaked to Greenpeace, suggests that green activists may have successfully penetrated at least some of the Canadian government agencies tasked with maintaining public safety – a development which seems likely to increase the concern of Canadian authorities.
