The Pentagon has declared climate change a 'national security issue' so you can all feel much safer now ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Sounds like our armed forces are trading in their guns for granola bars.

Under Biden our country continues its march toward Clown Nation status with the Department of Defense now saying they are going to "immediately take appropriate policy actions to prioritize climate change considerations in our activities and risk assessments, to mitigate this driver of insecurity."


Wouldn't want the people charged with protecting our country from foreign threats to be causing too much pollution.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin issued a statement saying,

"There is little about what the 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."

This, of course, comes after Biden signed a bunch of EOs addressing the 'climate crisis' (cuz when you call something a crisis, it becomes one). The White House said that these new orders would establish "climate considerations as an essential element of U.S. foreign policy and national security." And it looks like the DOD has hopped right to it.

How will they fight climate change? Turns out not by shooting missiles at the climate, unfortunately.

"As a leader in the interagency, the Department of Defense will also support incorporating climate risk analysis into modeling, simulation, wargaming, analysis, and the next National Defense Strategy. And by changing how we approach our own carbon footprint, the Department can also be a platform for positive change, spurring the development of climate-friendly technologies at scale."

Call me crazy, but I'd rather the DOD keep their eye on the whole defense thing, even if it means having a larger carbon footprint.

This is how you project weakness to the world.

No enemy of the U.S. is going to be scared of us if our armed forces trade their Humvees for Priuses.
