What is the greatest threat to the U.S. and World security? Putin’s ambitions to reestablish the USSR? ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and other growing terrorist groups around the world? Iran’s ambitions to develop nuclear weapons and intercontinental missiles? China’s ambitions to expand into other Pacific Countries’ territorial waters/islands? Or, the Administration’s Defense Secretary who is often clueless to these and other potential and real risks to the security of U.S. Citizens? If Climate Change presents the greatest risks to U.S. security, should not the Military begin preparing to stop the largest source of carbon emissions, China followed, by you-know-who?
In all seriousness, the Military’s purely political ideology motivated focus on Climate Change is a huge waste of U.S. resources and does not address the real and most threatening risks to U.S. security. It’s time for the Military to stop paying $150 per gallon for wasteful/unsustainable biofuels and focus on the real threats that could impact U.S. Citizens far more than the worst Climate Change predictions. What most Politicians forget is that our resources are finite and limited. Rather than wasting our limited resources on Military programs that will accomplish nothing significant, we need to focus on expanding existing low carbon technologies and other improvement strategies in the Public Sectors.
