With ISIS (ISIL, IS, whatever) increasing their influence, and apparent relevance in the Arab region, the uncertainty of the role of the military in Africa regarding the Ebola threat, and ALL of this in the face of persistent reductions in military spending through sequestration that are eroding our readiness, how in hell can "global warming" rise to the top of the Defense Secretary's talking points?

Is terrorism really more of a threat than the planet becoming uninhabitable? If we don't worry about our planet, there won't be any other considerations... At least not for our species...

PO1 Bernard Killinger - Really man? This is not a political issue, it's an issue that effects every living thing on this planet. This kind of willful denial of the consequences that come with not stepping up to the challenge to overcome it is the problem. Don't worry I got a plan, hell even major companies like Nike and Cisco are paving the way for the future by responding the threat of climate change with circular economy (which is a fancy way for saying zero waste manufacturing).

Since climate change is a naturally occuring cycle of our planet, it won't. It'll take a few hundred, if not thousand, years to have any real profound effect and then after a few more millenia, our future ancestors will be crying about how cold it's getting and call it global freezing.

Climate change is a fact, man caused climate "disruption" or "global warming" is a bunch of nonsense that is completely unsupported by actual data from any non-government funded or non-partisan entity. 
 This false premise will affect the military in a negative as we waste more than the usual amount of money on unsustainable "green" fuels and handing out R&D grants for solar powered tactical vehicles. Pay raises will become a thing of the past as the force becomes ever more degraded and hollowed out until we reach total combat ineffectiveness. Then we all sit around and smoke dope, eat granola, and question our gender, all while wearing hemp sandals until our country is taken from us by our foreign enemies. The domestic enemies have already won while we ignored our oaths and let the defense of the Constitution take second place to political correctness.

Right, climatologists are mostly NOT honest. Especially if honesty about man causing climate change doesn't fit the narrative that supports the agencies that provide the money that funds their research. If you consider deliberately skewing data, ignoring facts, and outright lying to be research. I'm all for green sustainable energy, I want to put a wind and solar setup at my house. But it has to actually work, and be sustainable. Large scale solar and wind power wouldn't exist if it wasn't subsidized, which is why it should be allowed to go under until they can figure out how to make it efficient AND affordable. Making conventional sources of power generation prohibitively expensive hurts us all both with higher electrical and gas costs, and with higher taxes to pay for subsidies for non-viable green power. Solyndra ring a bell? Forcing the military to waste money on green fuels when we are already cash strapped is just adding insult to injury, because the military doesn't have a choice.

We all know the data was being fudged intentionally in favor of global warming theory by UN funded scientists. Their emails were hacked, and they were caught red handed. However, in typical fashion, the media outrage was that UN scientists' emails were being hacked, not that they were lying.
Go figure. Doesn't make sense, until one starts seeing all the new "green" taxes and new regulations being made, in honor of this new false idol they are propping up in front of everyone. It's money and power, and very little to do with what they say it is.

Seriously? The facts are that big oil companies such as Exxon Mobile knew about anthropogenic global warming decades ago, in fact they funded some of the earliest research. This is actually a huge controversy that broke out over the last year. It's not propaganda at all and this idea that it's some "leftist thing" needs to go away already. NEWSFLASH political climates change too, nearly half of all Republicans agree with the science as well as of today.
