Pentagon orders the military to combat climate change

| January 28, 2021

The new administration and the new Secretary of Defense are commanding the US military to tackle their biggest enemy yet, the world’s weather.

The Pentagon will begin incorporating climate analysis into its war-gaming and analysis efforts as well as featuring the issue as part of its future National Defense Strategy.

The announcement by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin came shortly after President Joe Biden signed a series of executive orders targeting the climate crisis.

The Defense Department “will immediately take appropriate policy actions to prioritize climate change considerations in our activities and risk assessments, to mitigate this driver of insecurity. As directed by the President, we will include the security implications of climate change in our risk analyses, strategy development, and planning guidance,” Austin said in a statement.

“As a leader in the interagency, the Department of Defense will also support incorporating climate risk analysis into modeling, simulation, wargaming, analysis, and the next National Defense Strategy. And by changing how we approach our own carbon footprint, the Department can also be a platform for positive change, spurring the development of climate-friendly technologies at scale.”

“There is little about what the Department does to defend the American people that is not affected by climate change,” Austin concluded. “It is a national security issue, and we must treat it as such.”

This is all part of a massive Biden Administration strategy to combat climate change by destroying American energy independence, buying an all electric vehicle fleet, and committing to the idea of “environmental justice”. The latter is a theory that apparently even the weather is racist. Though according to at least one Democrat (still in office by the way), it’s the Jews who control the weather.

    Electric armored vehicles supported by a solar panel battalion? Pause in action for recharging or recapture energy with wind turbines on vehicle during movement?

    • JBUSMC says:

      Yea, I see a bunch of broke down tanks covered in solar panels coming soon. The chinese are rubbing their hands together saying “can you believe this shit? It’s gonna be easier than we thought.”

    • TXNorsky says:

      Well, maybe the Army can go nuclear. Have a small reactor on the back of each armored vehicle.
      That will teach them…

    And I thought it was a pain in the ass when we went to NTC and had to break down our MREs into different clear trash bags of cardboard, plastic, and other, and make sure every MRE heater was used. Of course we were told that was Comiefornias rules, nice to see the West coast is goin to ruin everything else.
    I’m sure the “climate analysis” will get reduced to either a single bullet point in the operations order, or become some horrible mess governed by conflicting unit, Corp, DA/DOD policy/regulations.

  3. OWB says:

    About the only thing I can do about the weather is adjust the thermostat and decide whether a jacket is needed to step outside. Can any of us do anything other than react to the weather?

    Oh, well.

    • Jus Bill says:

      Stop farting?

      • Green Thumb says:

        Yeah.

        Used to share an office with a dude like that back in old school.

        Dude did not play around. Hard chemical-gas assault right off the bat. Geneva Conventions be damned.

        I guarantee he was responsible for various health ailments to those in his DC or near vicinity.

    Lars approves.

    And he wants you to remember to wear your mask… unless you are a boomer. Then die. He wants you to die.

    • Deckie says:

      Where has he been anyway? Weak internet signal in his safe space?

      • SFC D says:

        He’s all fapped out after reading Joe’s executive orders. Talk about a dishonorable discharge…

        • OldManchu says:

          I see what you did there. Freaking awesome!

          I think he has to let his double spaces reload in his computer. He uses so many it runs out and has to recharge.

  5. ChipNASA says:

    Well, this is already years old. You can just finish this and then say “OK, we’re DONE with it.”

      Graybeard, got your ears on?

      With these bio-degradable seed rounds you could plant your garden, teach the young-ins’ how to shoot, gather some squirrels AND cook bacon all at the same time. Definitely an efficient use of ammo. (smile)

  6. KoB says:

    Refer back to my snarky comment on the new Saudi Bases from yesterday. Planes powered by Unicorn Farts, or in the case of Naval Aircraft, Goat farts (they do use Ram Jet engines don’t they?). For myself, I think I’ll sell off some pop corn futures and buy up some canvass factories. How much sail area would be required to push an Aircraft Carrier to reach launch speed? How many oarsmen (oarspersons?) to get a frigate to ramming speed?

    This is more pure and utter bullsh^t. Why don’t the world take some of the sciency stuff (ht 2 Mary Cooper) that proves the Chinese Communists are spewing way yonder more pollution into the air and put the blame to where it belongs? Oh, wait…I forgot. Sniff works for China now. He’s gotta get his 10%.

  7. Hondo says:

    Hey, no problem. Just use that good “green” biofuel.

    So what if that means the DoD’s fuel budget costs go up by a factor of 10?

    Idiocracy 2021.

    • UpNorth says:

      Well, yeah, that gives Pedo Jo and the Ho a perfect excuse to lop billions of $$ off the defense budget. It’s too expensive to fly planes or let the Navy put to sea for a cruise.

  8. 11B-Mailclerk says:

    I think it is safe to say that none of our adversaries will squander five minutes on this bullshit.

  9. David says:

    I somehow doubt “wait, won’t this worsen our carbon footprint” will be a factor when any of our nuke-armed enemies decide to attack
    our cities.

  10. Harry says:

    Meanwhile over in China – they’re laughing all the way to victory – in their fossil fuel burning aircraft and vehicles.

  11. Anonymous says:

    How do we assault weather?

    • Andy11M says:

      HAARP is already doing that.

    • Hack Stone says:

      Hack Stone has had the misfortune of sharing living space with some Marines who could create their own weather patterns by busting ass. This is a war we have no chance of winning.

  12. Mustang Major says:

    Pentagon generals and admirals must feel embarrassed.

    • Mason says:

      Imagine being SecDef Austin. First week in the job and your mandate is to enact the Green New Deal force-wide and restart the Obama-era social engineering of the force by pretending the military is stronger with a bunch of people confused about their gender.

  13. AW1 Rod says:

    Wow! Just when I think I’ve witnessed the epitome of Brainless, something like THIS bullshit comes along.

    Our enemies/adversaries are laughing their fucking asses off at this idiocy!

  14. Stacy0311 says:

    So using Composite Risk Management, I assess the probability/possibility as LOW and the effects as NEGLIBLE. Risk mitigation actions are N9NE. See how easy that was? Feel free to use this TTP in all of your planning efforts

  15. 26Limabeans says:

    Signal soldiers will wear the “solar” tab.
    The Green Berets will get a whole new meaning.

  16. George V says:

    I have a recollection the Obama admin. had the AF and Navy buying jet fuel made from algae or some such biological source. Cost about $16/gallon. I expect that idea to resurface any day now.

    • rgr769 says:

      Of course it will. The profit margins on the supposed eco-friendly fuels are at least four times higher than dino fuels.

      • Hack Stone says:

        And where exactly are forward deployed vehicles supposed to get their green fuel? Probably only one or two refineries make the fuel, and it is a total coincidence that they are major Democrat contributor, so a terrorist just needs to disable one tanker and the entire military fleet of aircraft, motor vehicles and aircraft are deadlined.

  17. Only Army Mom says:

    I just wanted it noted that Residents of Chicago, and other formerly American cities, have been combatting climate change for a long time. On every holiday, championship game win and sundry Tuesdays they shoot as many clouds as they can spot in the sky.

    Course, the ensuing precipitation can be lethal. But I’m sure Dear Leader will direct The Departs Defense Leaders to come up with a solution. Perhaps Kevlar umbrellas?

  18. Dustoff says:

    Future of US Army Armor. Battery powered Main battle Tank. Styrene smoothbore main gun. Fires a fin stabilized depleted seaweed round that penetrates all known armor, Seen here in newly released DoD video.

  19. 5JC says:

    The military gots this. A War College Study in 2015 indicted that the solution is to nuke the planet from orbit. This will trigger a nuclear winter that will lower the planet temperature for decades and end all green house gas production. It is the only way to be sure.

  20. Old 1SG, US Army (retired) says:

    Typical liberal nut jobs feel good exercise…

    We don’t even need to do anything to beat the Chi-coms… they’ll just end up laughing to death!
