Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion focused his most recent speech at the Canada in Global Affairs Conference at the University of Ottawa on the deep implications of climate change on security issues and regional instability, including by creating a fertile economic and social environment for Islamic unrest, Islamic revolutions and the emergence of Islamic global terrorist movements that have openly declared war on Western civilization.
Without mentioning the words “Islam” and “terrorism”, Dion provided his own theory (based on the “best experts”) to the “Arab Spring” (the series of uprisings lead by radical Islamic movements that have been rattling the Muslim world since 2011), the civil war in Syria between the radical Shiite–Alawite Muslim coalition and the radical Sunni Muslim groups, and the civil war in Somalia in which Islamic radical groups took control over large swaths of the country.
“How many people really know [the role of climate change on security]? For most, conflict and unrest have nothing to do with climate change. Yet look at the facts,” said Dion.
The following are excerpts of Dion’s speech (March 29, 2016):
