Justin Trudeau: 'Climate Change' Will Help Russia Attack Canada

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau claimed that “climate change” will give the Russian military “accessibility” to Canada’s Arctic north, leaving the country open to attack.

During a press conference on Friday in Cold Lake, Alberta, Trudeau and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg delivered remarks highlighting the so-called dangers of “climate change” to the “security” of Canada, the U.S, and Europe.

Trudeau said Canadian military personnel must alter their methods of operation to deal with changing terrain due to “climate change,” describing it as a “risk multiplier” increasing the chances of armed conflict around the world.

Trudeau said:

“Yesterday, Secretary General Stoltenberg and I visited Cambridge Bay in Nunavut. We toured a north warning system site and the Canadian High Arctic Research Station. We spent a lot of time with Inuit community leaders.”

“We heard about the ways global warming is changing the Arctic environment and changing the very terrain on which our Canadian Armed Forces operate.”

“It is clear to researchers, military experts, and both the Secretary-General and I that climate change is a risk multiplier. Not only are wildfires and floods increasing aid demands on the CAF, but globally, climate change is raising the risk of conflict. We need to take action to address its impacts on national and international security.”

Stoltenberg used “climate change” to back up claims of anthropogenic global warming, which he alleged is causing the Arctic ice to melt.

He said, “Climate change is making the High North more important, because the ice is melting, and it becomes more accessible both for economic activity and for military activity.”

“Security challenges in the High North are exaggerated by climate change,” Stoltenberg added. “Climate change will require us to transform — fundamentally — our approach to security and defense.”

Trudeau parroted Stoltenberg’s claims that “climate change” makes Canada and Europe a target of Russia:

“I think we understand that a number of factors are going into putting the Arctic in play as a security concern.”

“It has been to all of our credit that over the past many decades we have been able to work with partners and adversaries, including Russia, to keep militarization of the Arctic to a minimum, but the context is changing now for two reasons.”

“Obviously climate change is creating greater accessibility to the Arctic and bringing with it real concerns and challenges around that.”

During the half-hour press conference, Trudeau and Stoltenberg mentioned “Climate change” 11 times in total.
