U.S. Army to Waste Time and Money Combating Climate Change

In a memo released on Friday, May 14th, Biden’s U.S. Army announced plans to prioritize “climate change considerations in its threat picture, strategic plans, operations and installations.”

The memo alleges that climate change poses a serious threat to America’s interests. It says that extreme weather events and rising sea levels, two Democrat talking points, “threaten infrastructure and economic output, trigger large-scale population displacement, migration and exacerbate food and water insecurity.”

But the Army isn’t just acknowledging climate change as a potential threat. They will be making policy and changing current Army procedures. For instance, the Army will be “including climate risk analyses in…daily operational missions;” “investing in technologies to provide enhanced capabilities for operational energy and modernization priorities;” and “making changes to installation master planning, natural resource planning, and design, construction and sustainment standards to address climate risks.”

You may ask who is driving these decisions.

The memo addresses that as well: this action is being done “with the President and the Secretary of Defense’s direction.”

The Army Climate Change Working Group (ACCWG) was “deployed” on March 10 of this year and is actively developing what they are calling the Army’s Climate Strategy and Army Climate Action Plan.

Overall, the Army will be focusing American tax dollars and manpower on ways to increase the energy efficiency of the Army’s operations.

One of the most interesting bullet points of the memo seems to hint at some changes to current military vehicles that our troops rely on: “Poised to lead the way in technology development for tactical vehicles that balances increased capability with decreased climate impacts.”

The end of the memo asks “Why is this important to the Army?” Good question.

The main issue with these potential changes is not the wasted taxpayer money or manpower, though those are important.

The real issue is that a focus on efficiency at the cost of performance hamstrings the men on the ground, making them less able to do their jobs effectively and making them less safe.

  1. Without a doubt, the military would wasting time trying to combat climate change. It’s called nature, not a fifth grade science project. Unless other countries control their waste, it’s non-productive to try and chase windmills in the sky.

  2. this is the most ridiculous thing yet these dems will do anything to waste our tax dollars and decimate our military to the level of ineffective as proven by the obama biden outfit. Put this Thunberg clown in charge of our military’s climate change department and then our military can all chase fairies and unicorns and rainbows.

  3. We now have a woke Army what a shame. The greatest Army on the face of the earth is turning into another social experiment. China, Russia, N. Korea and Iran must be laughing their collective asses off.

  4. That’s right. Take the armor off the main battle Tank so it is lighter and more fuel efficient and less polluting. Not a big deal unless you are a member of the tank crew and the enemy gets a bead on your sacrificial butt.

  5. Biden’s army? Where did that come from, seems to me that the army is supposed to be the U.S. Army. He probably thinks that it is his army but I seriously doubt that the servicemen and women think that way. Biden is the weakest link in all the services and a danger to this country. His administration is a total failure to the LEGAL citizens of this country. I am a 20 year vet and I certainly do not remember climate change being part of my military duties. Keeping a clean house is one thing but wasting taxpayer funds for worthless programs is irresponsible and just plain stupid. Military’s main responsibility is for DEFENSE, not some outlandish political program. Beware democrats your attempt to bolster your voter base, via illegal immigrants and stupid wasteful programs,, will come back to bite you in the butt.

  6. What a bunch of B.S.! The world’s climate has been changing back and forth for thousands of years, long before human idiots have walked the earth! Somebody should take these climate change fanatics and slap some sense into them. Man’s feeble attempts to change what is inevitable will only put more restrictions on the people of the world… most notably Americans!

    1. You forget. They don’t teach history,,civics,math,or individualism in our modern schools and universities

  7. This is some of the most nonsensical rubbish I have read in a long time regarding our national safety. Such nonsense for you spending time and effort on. Let the scientists chase after this garbage and you all stick to your real job which you may have forgotten is the safety and defense of this country. Stop looking for nonsensical ways to spend money and just do the job your were set up to do. You have your hands full with that. Start your examination of the most dangerous people in this country are rooted in our Nation’s capital. You may also be part of the problem….think on that instead of trying to find additional ways to bankrupt this country!

    1. You hit it on the head. Remember this administration isn’t concerned about the safety and defense of this country.

  8. Somebody will make millions for providing weather-proof COVID masks and personal military severe weather alert apps. Command weather briefings will now include any rise and cumulative rises in any ocean, lake or river adjacent to or within flood zones within 10 miles of any military installation…ad nauseum.

  9. The ARMY leaders have surrendered to the “WOKE” stupidity. They are supposed to train and equip our military with the best means for defeating the enemies and defending the country. NOT be a branch of the asinine climate alarmist.
    Our MILITAY under this (fraud) president is becoming the laughing stock of the world and especially our ENEMIES.

  10. If you want to be informed of the true extent of fake crisis called global warming, read the book “Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science” for chapter and verse of the data manipulation, unexplained 16 year ‘no warming’ period after trillions of tons of CO2 released in the world, unscientific blocking of scientific studies citing natural reasons, selective data use, blocking of peer review of data, excluding historical data that does not support the CO2 “reason”, unscientific actions against scientists who do not support the CO2 “reason”, unscientific threats against scientific journals which publish “natural cause” studies, etc, etc etc., and the motivation to hype global non- existent.warming catastrophes to redistribute wealth from the United States and impose socialism on the world!

  11. The clowns in charge may as well park all the vehicles the military has and remove the big black scary firearms and just give the soldiers slingshots or bows and arrows. There is no way to cut down climate change for the military with out doing that. An all electric military vehicle is about as useful as creepy joe in the white house. The vehicle wouldnt be able to handle any thing other then paved roads and a light load as the components would get destroyed in cross country operations. Cant really use them in desert or humid operations as that alone would kill the electric circuits.

  12. I can just see a squad of soldiers pinned down, calling for an air strike to relieve them. But the air cover telling them that they will get back to them pending a review of the environmental impact of the ordinance on the local environment.

  13. We do have stupid MF in Washington an now bled over to the military. Did anyone tell them when explosives go off doesn’t help climate either. So does that mean we are going to get rid of bombs and missles an fight with tazzers. Are enemy’s laughing at America.

    1. They have been laughing ever since the American People decided to elect a senile old pervert to be their leader. This lack of leadership will be the demise of our Great Nation. The opportunity they have been waiting on has arrived where they can walk all over America without any fear of even a minor threat to their perspective countries. Our elected leadership is a disgrace

    2. All our enemies have to know is release a corona virus on us and we will completely shut down. That has now been demonstrated.

  14. Remember Benghazi Joe Biden was VP during that , are soldiers, airman,, sailors possible be in harms way with Joe Biden at the helm.

  15. Is this what our military is being reduced to, cartoon characters of woke women going out to fight cloud masses and unpredictable rain storms in our valiant fight against CLIMATE CHANGE, the big boogey man. Oooooow! What about the lesser enemies right at our door step…you know China, Iran, illegal immigrants???

  16. What a pile of BS but I’m sure it makes the White House happy! The Army claims any loss of money means they won’t be able to be joint or play joint with other military services, not that they ever have; but this is truly rich coming on the declaration! So the Army has money to waste on climate change but nothing for jointness!! As to assessing climate risk, well I would hope weather conditions would always be a consideration given tanks, artillery and helicopters. So nice the Army is being an opportunist!!

  17. CLIMATE CHANGE, ONCE REFERRED TO AS GLOBAL WARMING, IS A RUSE. THE LATE CHAIRMAN , OF THE UNITED NATIONS’ INTERGOVERNMENTAL PANEL ON CLIMATE CHANGE ( THE IPCC), RAJENDRA K. PACHAURI, MADE IT ABUNDANTLY CLEAR SOME YEARS AGO THAT CLIMATE CHANGE HAS NOTHING WHATSOEVER TO DO WITH EARTH’S EVER CHANGING CLIMATE, BUT INSTEAD HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE REDISTRIBUTION OF GLOBAL WEALTH. EARTH’S CLIMATE HAS BEEN CHANGING SINCE ITS FORMATION SOME 4..6 BILLION YEARS AGO. SINCE THEN, EARTH HAS BEEN SUBJECTED TO A NUMBER OF ICE AGES FOLLOWED BY PERIODS OF WARMING. FURTHERMORE, THE LAST ICE IS CHARACTERIZED BY A SEQUENCE OF GLACIALS, I.E.,PERIODS OF COOLING, AND INTERGLACIALS. I.E., PERIODS OF WARMING. DURING ONE OF THESE ICE AGES, SOME 460-440 MILLION YEARS AGO, I.E., DURING THE LATE ORDOVICIAN AND EARLY SILURIAN PERIODS, EARTH’S ATMOSPHERE CONTAINED 4,400-4,500 PPM CO2, I.E., ALMOST ELEVEN (11) TIMES TODAY’S ATMOSPHERIC CO2-CONTENT OF 417 PPM. EARTH’S RECENT WARMING FOLLOWS ON THE HEELS OF THE LITTLE ICE AGE, WHICH ENDED IN THE LATE 19TH CENTURY. IT WAS A PERIOD WHEN EARTH’S ATMOSPHERIC TEMPERATURES AVERAGED UP TO 1.5-2.0 DEGREES CENTIGRADE (2.7-3.6 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT) LOWER THAN THOSE OF TODAY. THE LITTLE ICE AGE CORRELATES VERY WELL W ITH THE WOLF, SPOERER, MAUDER, AND DALTON SOLAR MINIMA, PERIODS OF REDUCED SOLAR RADIATION, WHICH BEGAN IN THE EARLY 14TH CENTURY AND ENDED IN THE LATE 19TH CENTURY. PERHAPS THE LITTLE ICE AGE REPRESENTS A GLACIAL AND TODAY’S PERIOD OF SLIGHT WARMING AN INTERGLACIAL.

  18. To All,

    The next serious war to be confronted by a US Military in which ridiculous Liberal feel good preparation and priorities that have emphasized under Biden Liberal disaster will be climate correct energy savers, socially correct Marxist Negro sensitive, queer sensitive, gender sensitive and women ass kissers and be totally unprepared for new tactics, new weapons and new battle strategy’s.

    Yep we will have the most “politically correct” and “feel good” collection of unprepared going to their death at the hands of the Chinese, Russians, Iranians or even Hezbollah because the new Biden priority for readiness will be societal feel good failures.

    Remember; “Exterminate Liberalism a failed philosophy of emotional self indulgence and social irresponsibility.”

  19. If people would only read the Bible they would have a better understanding g of the changes happening today and it has nothing to do with so-called Climate Change. Ignoring the truth will not fix anything I don’t care what some may wish to believe. It Has Already Been Written.

  20. As it said it is being done at the direction of Biden and the SECDEF. The military has always taken into account the WEATHER for missions.

  21. Here it is! (A) It is all about POWER! And to keep it, you will do whatever you are told. So do not expect the 3 and 4 star generals to take a stand especially at the Pentagon. Say, today I command 300,000 people and if I say today is Tuesday, they all agree even though it is Friday! POWER! I retire and now tell the lawn mower person that I do not like how the grass is being cut and that person tells me that if I do not like how the grass is being cut, I can take the lawn mower and shove it up my ass and then quits! NO POWER! You want to know how it works? Get some books about the Vietnam war but only those written by people who actually FOUGHT the war. Example, there were air missions flown over NV every day that were scheduled for the same time each day, at the same altitude and from the same direction. How stupid do you think that the NVA were after day 2. Was there a change? No! After the war one of the Pentagon 4 stars was asked why didn’t you guys say that the way the war was being handled was BS and make a statement by retiring? Answer, We thought we would have more impact if we stayed. POWER! (B) We don’t need Tesla tanks, planes or people. We need American tanks, planes and people. We will kick your ass if you screw with us. But no, we are getting Vietnam again under a different name and with the same dipsticks at the top starting with Biden and the new McNamara plus POWER is good generals. We are in a shithole!!

  22. The Army has been developing plans to lessen effects on the climate for several years- before Biden was President. Just a simple web search will prove this to be true.
