military facilities at risk

Ooops. It seems according to a U.S. Department of Defense report that climate change has or will have a deleterious effect on almost half of America's 3,500 military facilities worldwide.

But wait! Climate change is a myth to hear Donald Trump and his minions tell the tale. And yet,  there's a problem: The U.S. is ramping up its military capacities/jingoistic rhetoric (in part to distract from the healthcare, employment, economic, infrastructure, educational needs) ... so how will anyone handle the deterioration of military facilities due to a myth?

I guess the excuse will be that it's normal wear and tear ... just give us more hardware and all will be well. To put the Department of Defense and the wisdom of Donald Trump on a collision course doesn't compute well.

  1. The military and the CIA have been concerned about climate change for some time now. But who listens to them?
