4 Feb 09 (Excerpts) In the opening remarks at her confirmation
hearing on Jan. 13, President, Barack Obama's Secretary of State
designate Hillary Clinton told the Senate Foreign Relations committee
she would use the office to shape foreign policy to fight global
As Hillary Clinton was speaking about the future security danger of
global warming in front of the Senate Foreign Relations committee, the
Russian government was preparing to release a massive study which
contained evidence of a different type of global climate change.
In fact, it was much more concerned with the prospect of a global ice
age in the years ahead. The Russian report measured core samples from
Russia's Vostok Station in Antarctica.
The Russian report summarized its findings as follows: "The evidence
from core samples suggests that the 12,000 years of warmth we call the
Holocene period is over. Apparently, we're headed into an ice age of
about 100,000 years, give or take. As for CO2 levels, core samples show
conclusively they follow the earth's temperature rise, not lead it.
So, as American and European politicians prepare to fight global
warming, Russia is preparing for a different world that may have much
colder times ahead. If global temperatures continue to cool, it will be
a cold war that Russia can win without ever firing a shot.
