The Navy and the Coast Guard, our first defense against… weather?

Forget the Middle East and Terrorism, Obama and Biden are pivoting to the military’s role on climate change

MILLINOCKET, Maine, May 24, 2015 – Vice President Biden spoke Friday at the commencement ceremony for the Naval Academy. A few days before that, President Obama had appeared at the Coast Guard Academy.

Both speeches included references to “risks to national security posed by climate change.”

When Mark Twain (or Charles Warner, depending on your sources) famously opined that nobody does anything about the weather, he never could have envisioned that here in the 21st century people would be trying to do just that.

This quixotic quest to control climate change has two factions; those who are true believers (that mankind WeatherQuoteEXPcan actually have an effect on the weather) and those who have invented this notion.


These inventors, whom we shall call “grand-scammers,” know full well the fallacy of their argument but count on the true believers to help carry out their agenda.

Now it seems the grand-scammers have decided to include the military in their arsenal of weapons against errant nature. It could be called the “war on weather.”

No expense is being spared to promote this illusory exercise.

Problem is, most people will never realize any benefit from the climate change movement. Only a select few will profit by selling carbon credits on an international exchange.

The comparison of the climate change agenda to a religion or a cult is valid in that carbon credits are a kind of guilt offering that is designed to provide “repentance” for climate offenders.

But that repentance comes with a very big price tag, as industries, states and countries will be required to pay into the billions of dollars for their climate sins.

    So, did you listen to the speeches? Did you consider the immediate audience? Do you understand that the Coast Guard in particular is being asked to provide a serious presence in the Arctic? Do yo understand that the part of “fighting”climate change is be prepared for it, Semper Paratus and all that? Do you realize that the Coast Guard currently has 1 heavy ice breaker? Luckily Senators Cantwell (WA) and Murchowski (AK) introduced a bill to build 5 new heavy ice breakers. Apparently they too see a need to be prepared for the consequences of climate change. Do you realize that the arctic is opening due to climate change and the US is currently not prepared for this eventuality?

      To all your questions… no. But I don’t accept the premise that global climate change is in any way affected by mankind. Weather and climate are natural occurrences. It is arrogant to assume otherwise. And to use our military as the vanguard in combating climate change is tilting at windmills on a grand scale.

        You don’t believe that the military, in particular the Navy and Coast Guard should prepare to deal with the results of climate change, whether or not the primary cause of that change is human? Really?

        • Jim Bozeman

          If it is determined that US national security is at risk, then I trust our military to do what is necessary. But using the military as pawns in a political shell game is a massive waste of resources.

            I’ve lived in Alaska for a long time. I’ve worked in environmental monitoring for 40+ years. There has been a lot of change and it is accelerating. These changes have a very high probability of resulting in potentially catastrophic environmental and/or national security events (one in the same really). The US has one heavy “polar class” ice breaker. China, which isn’t an arctic nation has ice breaking capabilities. Russia is very well equiped with ice breakers (as well it should). The US (Alaska) borders the eastern side of the only (and very restricted) Pacific entrance to the Arctic. Shell is drilling in the Chukchi Sea, commercial traffic is increasing dramatically. Do you suggest that the US “sit on its hands” and wait to see if anything happens?

            There is no doubt that our military should be well equipped and prepared to respond to any threat. But it is up to the administration and congress to ensure appropriations to keep our military on the cutting edge. If our armed services are not prepared, then who is sitting on their hands?
