    Now they want the U.S. Army to be environmental cops! Does anyone doubt that Obama wants to destroy our military capabilities? This is maybe, the single most shocking bunch of crap I have yet to see from this admin, and I have seen A LOT of shocking things.

    Inside the Ring - Washington Times

    The Pentagon's new four-year strategy review seeks to advance the Obama administration's effort to make climate change a key element of its domestic and international policies.

    The Quadrennial Defense Review report, which is meant to guide defense and military policies and weapons purchases, lists global warming and energy security as among the four most important security priorities, despite recent reports suggesting the science behind climate change has been skewed.

    Dennis C. Blair, the director of national intelligence, presented a less alarming view in his statement to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on Wednesday. He noted that U.S. intelligence does not conduct climate research and said spy agencies also don't evaluate "the science of climate change," nor the degree it will take place, or what is driving it, an apparent reference to the recent controversy about whether climate scientists were hiding data in an effort to hype the problem.

    Mr. Blair said climate change is "highly unlikely to trigger failure in any state out to 2030" but could add to conflicts between or within states.

    Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney said the administration's focus on climate change is misplaced.

    "It is inconceivable that this administration would consider climate change, aka global warming, as a threat when they cannot even identify radical Islam at Fort Hood," Gen. McInerney said, a reference to the mass shooting that authorities say was carried out by Maj. Nidal Hasan at the Texas base.

    "This is by far the most dramatic change in U.S. strategy since World War II and will make us very vulnerable," Gen. McInerney said.

    I could kind of see it if it's a way to deal with the issue of fighting wars in oil rich countries.

    Less oil we use, less political power for shitty countries like Saudi Arabia or Iran. But doesn't seem to be where Bam is going with this.

    Anyone with a functioning brain knows global warming is bullshit, but the remedies to it would also accelerate our movement away from Arab-Venezuelan oil, so if it's used as a way to get small minded Gore-sheep on board, might not be the worst thing.

    I'm not certain, but is this about the article Navy posted the other day on our Navy having to be involved with the arctic melting and countries such as Russia wanting to make claim to the ship passage to America that they expect to open up due to the melt?

    No., no everyone misunderstands. NASA and the military are teaming up with DC to create an orbital Freeze Ray capable of both stopping GoreBull(TM) warming and an invading enemy in their tracks.

    Seriously,i can't think of a single issue this President has been on the right side of since taking office. People really wanted this stuff? Yikes! This is what happens when a nation elects an inexperienced & failed "Community Organizer" as President. What a disaster.
