Is Global Warming A National Security Issue?

As if the FBI and CIA aren't busy enough without adding more bureaucracy.

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."

I am sure glad they are onto this as a issue worthy of military involvement. While they are at it, maybe they can work up a plan to fight the bogeyman too.
