WASHINGTON ( – Drought. Famine. Pestilence. Apocalypse. The extinction of millions of entire species; one-third of known life forms. The unthinkable: Three billion people without adequate water supplies, while melted glaciers and ice sheets will leave other major global regions ravaged by floods, violent storms and storm surges.

Not a futuristic science-fiction fantasy. Rather, it is a plague right on America’s doorstep, which the entire planet faces. Its proportions here will rival the Dust Bowl conditions which devastated this land in the 1930s.

According to a report released Apr. 6 by the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), these are just some of the effects of global climate change which cannot be stopped for decades, even if the offending rich and industrialized nations–the United States and Western Europe–made dramatic lifestyle changes immediately to reduce the greenhouse gases said to be responsible for the impending crisis.


And these are the “watered down” findings, which were immediately criticized by many of the scientists involved in the research because “political bureaucrats” representing the suspect governments made last minute changes to the report to soften international demands for action.

“The Holy Qur’an teaches us that God used snow, rain, wind, hail, earthquakes and fire against former wicked people,” the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad wrote in his book, “The Fall of America,” published in 1973. “Is America any better than the people we read about in history that God destroyed? No, she is not as good. These people were not as wicked as America.”

“All around the Southern border of America, storms are raging. There are tornadoes and heavy rains and more storms on the way–one right after another. And in the North and Far West, and in the East, America is surrounded with the judgments of Allah (God),” Mr. Muhammad wrote.

The earth’s climate scientists, and their most sophisticated computers, now bear witness to the unerring word from the Divine Servant of Allah. Sea levels are already rising and as climate change continues, as many as 100 million people who live less than three feet above sea level are at risk of losing their homes and their livelihoods.

The World Wildlife Federation calls the report a “devastating outlook” for the environment and the earth’s economy.

“Poor countries that bear the least responsibility will suffer most–and they have no money to respond,” said Hans Verolme, Director of the WWF’s Global Climate Change Program. “But people should also be aware that even the richer countries risk enormous damage.

“Doing nothing is not an option. On the contrary, it will have disastrous consequences. The industrialized countries need to accept their responsibilities and start implementing the solutions,” Mr. Verolme continued.

“Our societies are dependent upon nature on this planet,” said Dr. Lara Hansen, Chief Scientist for the WWF’s Global Climate Change Program, “yet we have undermined it for centuries. Now, with climate change, we are attacking the very basis of the natural world, putting us all at risk.”

Freshwater supplies for hundreds of millions of people are at risk, but the dire predictions are just the “tip of the iceberg” according to ecological experts around the world. “The science got hijacked by the political bureaucrats at the late stage of the game,” said Prof. John Walsh, Chief Scientist at the University of Alaska Fairbanks’ International Arctic Research Center, who co-authored the report’s chapter on polar regions. He vowed to never again, help produce another IPCC report. “Once is enough,” Prof. Walsh said, according to published reports.

Political negotiations led to the deletion of some of the report’s time-lines, as well as some of the forecasts on how many people would be affected by the changes.

The report is the second of four scheduled to be issued this year by the UN, which enlisted more than 2,500 scientists to give their best predictions of the consequences of just a few degrees increase in global temperatures. Even in its softened form, the report says with 90 percent certainty, that global warming is caused by human behavior, insisting that there is voluminous scientific data, collected over the years supporting its findings.

Much of the American territory west of the Mississippi River will be laid arid, according to 16 of 19 climate computer models assembled by the UN panel. The computer models show that with more greenhouse gasses making the entire planet hotter, rainfall in the Great Southwest will be suppressed. The arid desserts will expand.

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, has warned and warned again, that the U.S. government and its political missteps are only hastening this Divine Chastisement, because America has been preserved for destruction by Almighty God Allah, Himself.

“Mr. President, if you do this,” Min. Farrakhan warned President George W. Bush in a prophetic letter dated October 30, 2002, months before the launch of the war and occupation of Iraq, “you will bring down upon America an increase in the Divine Judgment of rain, hail, snow, wind, earthquakes, pestilence and famine that is already witnessed in the country. As you go about destroying other nations and cities, you will bring this kind of Divine Wrath on the American people and on American cities.”

However, the Bush administration, which has long been accused of routinely censoring environmental reports produced by U.S. government scientists, has insisted that it will not reduce greenhouse gas emissions and will not participate in the world-wide consensus on the subject, called the Kyoto Protocol. In 2001, President Bush abandoned the protocol, saying that it was unfair for not imposing strict enough sanctions on poor countries, and that it would “wreck” the U.S. economy.

The IPCC Assessment Reports are considered the “gold-standard” of what the world’s scientists currently know about climate change, according to the National Environmental Trust (NET). “The reports are by their nature conservative since they are a synthesis of studies that have already received rigorous peer review,” NET President Phillip E. Clapp said in a statement.

There is even more disturbing evidence that there are natural forces, beyond the control of modern science, which are capable of rendering enormous damage to modern societies. On Dec. 6, 2006, a solar flare erupted, which was so intense, it disrupted the Global Positioning System (GPS), a satellite-based navigational system used widely by military, scientific and civilian technicians, researchers reported Apr. 4.

The event produced 10 times more energy than had ever before been recorded, Dr. Dale Gary of the New Jersey Institute of Technology said, according to the online edition of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration magazine (NOAA). “Measurements with New Jersey Institute of Technology’s (NJIT) solar radio-telescope confirmed, at its peak, the burst produced 20,000 times more radio emission than the entire rest of the Sun. This was enough to swamp GPS receivers over the entire sunlit side of Earth,” Dr. Gary said in a statement.

Forecasters from the NOAA observed two powerful solar flares Dec. 5-6, 2006, emanating from a large cluster of sunspots. A giant radio burst followed, causing large numbers of receivers to stop tracking the GPS satellite signals on earth. The eruptions were in fact, far beyond anything scientists have ever measured before, or even considered possible.

“This radio event was 10 to 20 times bigger than anything we had measured before, or thought would reach earth from the sun,” said William Murtaugh of NOAA’s Space Environment Center, according to published reports. Significantly, this event occurred during what is described as a “solar minimum.” By 2011, when the next “solar maximum” arrives, the disruptions to GPS devices and other satellite-based navigation systems could be far more severe, scientists predict.

GPS is used widely in navigation and military operations of all kinds, as well as in controlling the flow of electricity through world power grids, and in international financial transactions, and world dependence on it is growing rapidly, according to weather researchers.
