Climate Change Vigilance = National Security
Here's an excerpt from President Obama's Keynote Address at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy Commencement:
“When you’re on deck, standing your watch, you stay vigilant. You plan for every contingency. And if you see storm clouds gathering, or dangerous shoals ahead, you don't sit back and do nothing. You take action — to protect your ship, to keep your crew safe. Anything less is negligence. It is a dereliction of duty. And so, too, with climate change. Denying it, or refusing to deal with it endangers our national security. It undermines the readiness of our forces.”
My sentiments exactly. Climate-change denial — the fossil fuel barons who are choreographing it and the millions of inbreds who keep dancing to it — is a dire threat to our national security.
