Pentagon Goes to War With Phantom Menace

In a new directive issued to military officers, the Pentagon has ordered that essentially every task and mission the military undertakes should now be planned around fighting climate change.

You read that right. The U.S. military is going to war against the weather.
According to a weekend story by the Washington Times, the theme of the directive is “the U.S. Armed Forces must show ‘resilience’ and beat back the threat based on ‘actionable science.'”

The directive presumes that climate change will make the military less effective unless the forces are proactive, and to that end, it calls for a whole new military bureaucracy of councils, advisory boards and working groups to infuse the climate change agenda into just about every aspect of military activity.
