Strewth - Oz Plod Plans Post Apocalyptic Policy

Greenhouse cops needed on planetary beat | The Australian

Australian Federal Police commissioner Mick Keelty, suggested last September that climate change could eclipse terrorism as the security issue of the century.

Climate change could have wide-ranging implications and challenges for Australia's police. New legal regimes are required to manage carbon markets and these will require compliance and enforcement. ...

We may see changes in the type, rate and frequency of crimes as our climate alters. Anecdotal evidence suggests that weather does encourage particular types of criminal behaviour, such as changes in domestic violence patterns, a rise in drunkenness and associated anti-social behaviour, especially in the aftermath of disasters...

Crimes of opportunity will increase with more climate-affected natural disasters: if custodial sentences are given to looters this will have obvious implications for our prison system....

Australian police could provide, for example, a security presence at refugee camps or at key transit areas in regional countries to help manage any potential mass movement of people.

More climate refugees or climate migrants could pose problems for community policing, possibly leading to changes in the rates and types of crime that police forces will have to confront.

Our police officers may have to face more environmental protest groups challenging governments to go further in climate change mitigation and adaptation. Law enforcement bodies would want to avoid aggressive and heavy-handed approaches in responding to this potential problem.

In vulnerable areas, police will need to play an active role enhancing community preparedness by educating the public in disaster-response protocols. The co-operation between state police and the military will need to improve to aid the Australian civil community in times of traumatic environmental stress.

I have rarely seen such a concentrated load of stalinist crud spouted by such a small number of humans(which is to say, one)in so short a space of time. I wonder, again, if the guy is listening to himself as he spouts. Listened to, it defies belief.

never in the field of human conflict has so much tosh been spoken, by so few, to so many.

"Our police officers may have to face more environmental protest groups challenging governments to go further in climate change mitigation and adaptation. Law enforcement bodies would want to avoid aggressive and heavy-handed approaches in responding to this potential problem."

Damn, no Greenpeace and FoE scum being picked off by snipers then.

Of course, the real climate criminals, plastic bag users, non-eco drivers, incanwhatever bulb users, meat eaters, bin overfillers, appliance on standbyers, these repulsive, odious filth can expect the full weight of the law to be brought crashing down upon their denialist skulls.
