Climate Change Threatens National Security?

In a dramatic shift from the Trump administration, the Biden administration has declared that “climate change” is a threat to the national security of the United States.

**********

The Pentagon will now consider climate change when planning war games and will incorporate the issue into its future National Defense Strategy, according to a Wednesday announcement,” as reported by The Hill. [emphasis added]

“‘There is little about what the [Defense] Department does to defend the American people that is not affected by climate change. It is a national security issue, and we must treat it as such,’ Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said in a statement.

“‘The Department will immediately take appropriate policy actions to prioritize climate change considerations in our activities and risk assessments, to mitigate this driver of insecurity.’

“Austin announced the change after President Biden earlier on Wednesday signed a series of executive orders aimed at addressing the climate crisis.

“The shift means the Department of Defense (DOD) will now ‘include the security implications of climate change in our risk analyses, strategy development, and planning guidance,’ according to Austin.”

    Remember, Red China doesn’t have to play this game. Our new “green” military will soon suffer large budget cuts too. Together with reduced readiness, we won’t be able to repel Angola. I wonder how long before Biden’s buddies in Beijing decide it’s time to absorb Taiwan?

    How will they institute climate change protocols on war? Train with environmentally safe cardboard guns, tanks, bombs, and my favorites planes and ships. The new cardboard submarine should be a winner.

  3. Sally C says:

    Holly Rose hasn’t figured out that the dems are brainwashing her. Use some common sense that God gave you and don’t follow blindly. Watch news that’s not leftist.
    If your family members lose their jobs are you just going to say biden ment well? Trump gave jobs to people not destroyed them. Rolling over for the dems well get you exactly NOTHING.
    Climate change will always happen. It’s not that we are doing something awful. The artic use to be grasslands according to the history channel. It’s away for the demwitts to get richer.

    The climate change was a result of a fraudulent election that brought in self serving corrupt leadership whose strings are being pulled by politicians on both sides of the aisle, the super wealthy, and the CCP. Just a matter of time before climate control corrections are made to make America Great again.

    What was Al Gore’s big gloom and doom years ago? We are still here. As we found out, the big hypocrite Gore with his multiple mansions and private jet, had invested heavily in green energy and then tried to scare everyone into spending a lot on green energy to make him richer. Scientists who show evidence contrary to the gloom and doom are censored and threatened. Apparently we shouldn’t trust anyone pushing climate change.

    • Lester Lesterson says:

      We absolutely agree with your comments about Al Gore, who made countless millions at speaking engagement about the False Climate Change.
      The Weather Channel Founder openly admits that THERE IS N. O. CLIMATE
      CHANGE.!!! Its only used by Sleez like Gore to falsly claim that its real !!!!

    Climate change is what happens naturally, we all know that it’s been going on since the begining of time.The earth controls us it’s not the other way around. I live on the west coast where it’s still under a lot of submarine activity.
    It’s been getting warmer in places and colder in other places in the world. Mother earth heals itself whether we accept it or not.
    But here we have these idiots in DC spending our money on useless agendas.Sure emissions are high and our future generations deserve cleaner air but the way these people are coming up with this Bogus crap is driving us closer to SOCIALISM which as free people won’t put up with.
    Oh and by the way Pelosi is The DANGER WITHIN.
    Marjorie Greene wants to start impeachment on BIDEN so she is making her look like she’s terrorist. That’s my opinion

  10. Gary says:

    We are always in a climate change situation. From the beginning of time, we will never stop it and even if we put all our efforts to stop it, it will keep on changing. China would love for the u.s. to expend all our resources on it that way they we will all be controlled by them and we will be talking mandarin

  11. Debbie Magonigal says:

    What a crock! What idiot thought this up! Had to be a democrat

  12. Marylin Nistler says:

    We have got to do something quickly Biden is causing our Country to to go to socialism and this has proven to Never Work. I could cry I feel so badly. Trump won, but what can we do now?

  13. Holly Rose says:

    If a member of the Biden administration says the climate change is a big threat then it must be so and must be address without fail.
