The CIA and Pentagon would for the first time be required to assess the national security implications of climate change under proposed legislation intended to elevate global warming to a national defense issue.
They also want "war games" conducted to see what kind of damage global warming can cause.
The measure also would order the Pentagon to undertake a series of war games to determine how global climate change could affect US security, including "direct physical threats to the United States posed by extreme weather events such as hurricanes."
I guess it's a bipartisan effort also.
The measure, sponsored by Senator Chuck Hagel , a Nebraska Republican, and Senator Richard J. Durbin , an Illinois Democrat, comes as other international bodies are taking steps to designate global warming as a high international priority.
Chuck Hagel and Dick Durbin? I thought it was bipartisan?
I wonder how the greenies (who hate the FBI and CIA) will respond to global warming being turned over to "the man."
