The Navy is interested in the flow of oil. Its current presence in the South China Sea is due to that flow. The use of fuels other than oil will keep the Navy going even during a temporary shortage. Reducing your dependence on one fuel type is strategic. To suggest that putting up a few solar panels is going to do anything to advert climate change is absurd. A stronger link to a belief of climate change would be a design proof of stronger ships to combat more serious weather. The Navy now having ships that look like oil tankers and you think climate change?

Good thing those of us that are not part of the system believe in God and don’t worry to try and solve the worlds problems knowing our creator has control.

Knowing a person in the Command I can assure you all the military is gearing up for increasing climate change.

It will not change with another administration.

It is evidence than the Obama appointees who dictate the politics in the Pentagon embrace Climate Change.

What used to be called the greenhouse effect would result in less variable weather but warmer temperatures. This idea that climate change causes volatile weather is just the latest ploy on the part of ideologues to persuade everyone as to the wisdom of their policy plans for energy, like wind mills and solar panels. This sort of thing has worked for tiny countries like Norway that don’t really have to pay for their own defense.

Last week I attended a lecture by Admiral Titley, who stated part of the cause of the Syrian conflict and refugee movement is global warming.

That the military is preparing for more populations shifts, conflicts, and contested artic passages due to global warming.

A civilian organization does not have the resources, the capacity, or the equipment to aid in such conflicts.

I know, I know more than yourself.

with 37 unionized civilians? that’s going to work until a light bulb on board burns out – they’ll have to return to a shipyard for technical assistance.

there’s a reason the Navy used to have sailors….

” The U.S. Navy is globally postured to secure our homeland and citizens from direct attack and to advance our interests around the world. Our core capabilities of forward presence, deterrence, sea control, power projection, maritime security, and humanitarian assistance and disaster relief create a fast, flexible, and responsive global force for good.
The Navy is committed to improving energy security and environmental stewardship by reducing reliance on fossil fuels. The Navy is actively developing and participating in energy, environmental and climate change initiatives that will increase use of alternative energy and help conserve the world’s resources for future generations.”
