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.
