The tip of the iceberg
Daniel Cotter | 3:00 pm EDT May 7, 2019
Palmer Report » Analysis

Every time we believe that we have hit bottom with this Trump administration, we realize that the depths of the stupidity, corruption and malfeasance is beyond comprehension. We just get glimpses of the tip of the iceberg from this gaggle of knaves.

The latest is from Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State, who gave comments about the Arctic and rapidly melting sea ice levels.

One must look to make sure it is not April Fools’ Day or perhaps The Onion spoofing reality, but alas, no such luck. Pompeo appeared to find great economic opportunity in the melting ice, stating in Finland: “The Arctic is at the forefront of opportunity and abundance. It houses 13 percent of the world’s undiscovered oil, 30 percent of its undiscovered gas, an abundance of uranium, rare earth minerals, gold, diamonds, and millions of square miles of untapped resources, fisheries galore. Steady reductions in sea ice are opening new passageways and new opportunities for trade. This could potentially slash the time it takes to travel between Asia and the West by as much as 20 days.

“Arctic sea lanes could become the 21st century Suez and Panama Canals.”

Not once did the words “climate change” leave his lips. Perhaps 🦕 Pompeo and others who shrug off the Earth’s troubled state have a secret for how their descendants will live in a significantly uninhabitable environment. Rather than look at the risks inherent in melting ice caps, Pompeo and his environmentally backward patrons, the 🦕🦖 Koch brothers, look at the immediate profits.

Every day in this administration, we only see the tip of the iceberg, and that is not healthy for the nation and the course it is on, like the Titanic captain ignoring the warnings.

Idiocy. Madness. And by the way, it's a Russian talking point, as are many utterances from Trump and minions. https://www.cbc.ca/.../russia-putin-climate-change...

It is not a small profit. Isn't it something like 30 trillion just for the oil? They want climate change to continue so they can get at the oil, and other valuables. Anybody watching the new Daniel Sheehan series, the class he is teaching on Trump and the trajectory of Justice? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUfOPwUUeas... I think it is the 3rd class on this youtube series that outlines climate change.

Great article!

Finnish analysis:

Trump's foreign policy thundered in Rovaniemi

United States brought world politics to the Arctic Summit of 8 countries, but was left standing alone against the other countries

Mike Pompeo held a speech, intented to warn Russia and China, who both drool after the Arctic areas. His speech was considered bizarre, leaving no room for negotiations.…See More

He listen to a BBC broadcast about how China was getting interested in the Artic adn we were being left behind. He's trying to counter Chinese interest. Russia may want to use Chinese capital to open up the artic. With the sanctions Russia is turning elsewhere for capital for their projects. It is a problem

Forgot to mention that by the time this happens, the coastal ports for all this trade will be under water.

Um, no...THEY DON'T CARE!! It isn't going to directly affect them, so as far as they are concerned, it's irrelevent.

The minerals in the Arctic and Antarctic are not going to do us much good if 80% of our cities are flooded deeply. What an abject fool Pompeo is.
