Senators Hagel and Durbin are to push a bill that ties climate to national security and impose demands on the CIA and Pentagon to devote resources to this issue.
We are fighting terror and trying to prevent Iran, the number one state sponsor of terror, from developing nuclear weapons. Apparently that is not an urgent priority compared the hypothesized dangers that would take many decades to inconvenience anyone.
North Korea? Let others focus on the problem. Violence in Africa, Chavez in South America, narco-terrorism in the Southern Hemisphere? Trifles.
The CIA and Pentagon are in dire need of reform in order to deal with these issues. What better time to impose absurd demands on them to become weather experts.
