Seriously, none of these agencies tasked with keeping America safe have anything better to do
Obama signed a directive on Wednesday telling the offices to develop a “federal climate and national security working group” to “identify the U.S. national security priorities related to climate change and national security, and develop methods to share climate science and intelligence information to inform national security policies and plans,” the White House said.
He charged the group with developing a climate change action plan within 90 days, laying out steps for sharing climate data, research ideas and vulnerability assessments for parts of the United States that are threatened by climate change over the next three decades.
When the boss “asks” you to do something, you do it. It’s really about the same thing as an order.
It’d be funny as hell if they came back and said Obama should stop traveling so much and reduce his own carbon footprint.
Now, let’s consider that the world has warmed. It’s not a bad thing to consider what implications this has to our national security. Just like if the world cooled. The problem here is that, based on Obama’s beliefs, they will surely be required to consider it as a problem caused by Mankind, so all the solutions will be based on that bit of politics. Hence, the results will be politically driven, what the boss wants to see, rather than realistic.
