Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

The generals, all of whom are political appointees and lifelong bureaucrats who haven’t held real jobs in decades, will be more than happy to come up with exciting new plans for dealing with global warming, and all the manpower and trillions of dollars that will require over the next 30 or 40 years. It would unpatriotic to do anything less. National security is at stake. LOLOLOLOLOL

With dollar signs in their eyes, Pentagon officials have jumped on the global warming bandwagon and “released a report Monday asserting decisively that climate change poses an immediate threat to national security, with increased risks from terrorism, infectious disease, global poverty and food shortages.” What’s the answer to these many woes? Why, to give the military-industrial complex lots and lots and lots of money.

Military is a broad term, I support the troops but to claim the pentagon is acting in a frugal and altruistic manner is a bigger lie than 2014 being hottest on record

Hope you recover soon

Stop deflecting. The Bush administration's mismanagement of the war in Iraq isn't germane to this topic.

The Pentagon's stance on global warming is.

In 2008, the Pentagon spent more money every five seconds in Iraq than the average American earned in a year

In 2007, the amount of money labeled 'wasted' or 'lost' in Iraq -- $11 billion -- could pay 220,000 teachers salaries

So you don’t believe the military. You think they’re acting cynically to get more funding.

I, on the other hand, believe the military is acting with the best interests of the country in mind, and as a patriot, I intend to join them.

Do you believe the US military that global warming is a national security threat? If so, how are you prepared to address that threat?

Take your fib about 2014 being the hottest ever, simply untrue but that's ok.
