Bummer: Trump May Use ‘Climate Change’ Funds For Wall

If true, this would be hilariously ironic, since all the Warmists are running around yammering about ‘climate change’ being a national emergency, not protecting the U.S. southern border

Trump may use climate change funds to build his wall

As you may have heard, Trump did not get Mexico to pay for a border wall and declared a state of national emergency. Now he wants to use our tax dollars to build his wall. $3.6 billion is to come out of a military construction account that was supposed to fund a variety of projects, including helping installations (like military bases) deal with rising sea levels.

The military wants to raise naval docks so rising seawater doesn’t damage electrical systems, build sea walls and improve wildfire protection, like the pesky treehuggers they are.

Do I need to point out the irony here? The government claims climate change doesn’t exist while building infrastructure to deal with it.

“Acknowledging climate change as a problem, particularly with infrastructure, is widely accepted,” said John Conger, a former Department of Defense deputy comptroller.

Indeed, the military doesn’t seem to take climate denial seriously.

Of course, what we have here is the notion that the climate has gotten warmer, and that the seas have risen. Not a lot, certainly much less than expected during a Holocene warm period, but, have risen. But, that’s not proof of anthropogenic causation. Just because something is happening doesn’t necessarily explain why it is happening. The most likely explanation is the same one for billions of years: nature. Add some effects like land use and the urban heat island effect into the mix, along with the release of greenhouse gases, plus bad science which manufactures bad data to prop up the Cult of Climastrology, and you have a “crisis”.

Regardless, it is hilarious that they find a way to link ‘climate change’ with building the wall.

    Hardening our military infrastructure against rising seas and warming temperatures should be independent of causation, right? Since the Earth is warming (according to you), why wouldn’t we expect the military to prepare? Do you think the warming is temporary?

    You finally came around to acknowledging the fact of global warming, but you oppose any and all efforts to accommodate to it??

    It seems your walking yourself straight into a logical conundrum.

    He’s also going to use the money he gets from CA they scammed the Feds out of for their Bullet Train To Nowhere.

    A border wall is “hardening our military infrastructure”. I see nothing wrong with the military using the AGW as a lame excuse to piss away money. All branches are doing it why not them? I’m sure if we think about it we can come up with a dozen reasons why we should build the Wall to help fight climate change and/or the results therefrom.

    I don’t know who the “you” is in Elwood’s post that he seems to think “finally came around to acknowledging the fact of global warming” but I think everybody here believes in climate change (may be warming, may be cooling) we just question the cause and severity. I know Teach has said that since I’ve been coming here. As far as accommodating the rise in sea levels why are leftist billionaires and millionaires still buying Malibu beach property? Seems they aren’t buying in to the “rising seas will kill people” hysteria. There’s a “logical conundrum” for you, Elwood.

      Don’t you know? Sea levels have never risen and temps have never gone up till you bought your SUV…

    America actually has lots of coastal cities. So far, the only one that is under water is the one that was built under water. “Rising sea levels” is not something that has been proven by actual people who actually live on the coasts and watch actual seas actually rising.

    All they see at the sea is normal levels of erosion, that has been going on forever.

    But I’m sure the Navy would use that excuse to get Democrats in Congress to go along with funds to maintain piers. Telling people what they want to hear is a known successful negotiating strategy.

    • Mangoldielocks says:

      I just read an article by the dailymail/UK that said heavy snow fall in the Antarctic is slowing sea level rise by a third. They were mad. Too funny. Heavy snow and colder colds is global warming.

      They were throwing a tantrum that we weren’t dying on schedule.

    Here we go again-“rising seas and warming temps.” Sea level has been going up for 20,000 yrs, and temps, depending on the start date, at least since 1850. So what?

    Ya know guys, I think we’re selling this border wall thing all wrong. If we want to get the leftists on border all we need to do is call it The Green Iron Curtain and claim it’s to keep people IN. All those leftist love walling people in, it’s walls to keep people out they get fuzzy about.
