Warmists Want A Secretary Of Climate Change

Alternate headline: people who use vast amounts of fossil fuels want issue that no one really cares about to be made cabinet level

(Daily Caller[1]) National security insiders and environmentalists believe the next U.S. president must create a new cabinet position to confront so-called man made global warming.

An environmentalist think tank and former members of the military brass argued in a report Wednesday[2] that future presidential administrations must tackle global warming by crafting a cabinet level position to deal with the effects climate change have on national security.

If you’re guessing that the majority of these military folks are hardcore lefties, you’d be correct.

The document, which also describes global warming as a “significant and direct” threat to the U.S. military, is the brainchild of Washington-based think tank Center for Climate and Security, as well as senior military officials including retired Gen. Anthony Zinni, former commander of the U.S. Central Command, and Admiral Samuel Locklear, the former head of the Pacific Command.

Let’s be honest and clear: climatic changes do represent problems for the military. They always have. Think of the cold weather of the Little Ice Age during the Revolutionary War. All the various climates that soldiers fought in during WWII. The cold and hot of Korea. The hot, sticky jungles of Vietnam. It all boils down to the question, though, of causation. These weenies say mankind is mostly/solely responsible for this warm period. Yet, few will give up their own big carbon footprints, and most want initiatives that increase the size, power, and scope of the federal government to increase. More taxation, more restrictions on liberty, more and more control of energy and the economy. More control of your lives.

Why does every “solution” from the Cult of Climastrology revolve around bigger, more powerful government? Answer that question, and you understand the whole ‘climate change’ push.
