(Thomas Mitchell) – Seriously?
Obama addressed the Coast Guard Academy graduating class this week and told them the biggest threat to national security is climate change.
“Climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security,” he said, “and, make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country. And so we need to act— and we need to act now.”
He basically said denial of climate change as a threat is dereliction of duty.
He said this in the same week the Islamic State overran Ramadi in Iraq and Palmyra in Syria. Ramadi is closer to Baghdad than Las Vegas is to Mesquite.
Despite those losses, Josh Earnest told the press Obama’s strategy to defeat the Islamic state has been a success.
North Korea has nuclear weapons and an insane leader capable to using them. Iran is on the verge of developing its own nuclear arsenal and it has the leaders capable of using it.
There has been no global warming in 18 years, despite all the computer model predictions, but Obama still is focused on preventing the temperature of the planet increasing 1 degree over the next century. Perhaps the should be more worried about a nuclear winter.
What alternative universe do these fools live in?
