Napolitano - DHS to Battle Climate Change

as Homeland Security Issue

This is scary

17 Dec 10 - "At an all-day White House conference on "environmental justice," Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced that her department is creating a new task force - the "Climate Change and Adaptation Task Force" - to battle the effects of climate change on domestic security operations," says this article by J. Brady Howell.

This is scary. What will happen to global warming skeptics, I wonder? Will I be branded a terrorist? Our governing elite are grabbing far too much power.

According to the former Arizona governor, the task force is charged with “identifying and assessing the impact that climate change could have on the missions and operations of the Department of Homeland Security.”

The conference did not define “environmental justice.” The June 2010 Department of Homeland Security Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan states “Many USCG [Coast Guard] and Customs and Border Protection facilities, by their mission, are located in the coastal zone which will be adversely impacted by sea level rise.  Costs will increase for protecting existing facilities from the impacts of sea level rise and some facilities might have to be abandoned in the longer term.”

Sea level rise? No, sea levels will fall as we head into the next ice age. That's where all of the moisture comes from to build up the giant ice sheets that will cover Canada and many other areas of the far north (and far south).

Napolitano is being politically correct when she calls it "climate change," but talking about rising sea levels implies global warming.
