Bummer: US Military Not Ready For Climate Crisis (scam) Or Something

Of all the things the U.S. military should be worried about, this isn’t even in the top 50

Senior Pentagon official warns the US military is ‘not ready’ for climate change

A senior Pentagon official warned the US military is “not ready” to handle climate change, a national security issue that touches nearly every aspect of Defense Department planning.

“We are not where we should be, and now is beyond the time when we need to get in front of that challenge,” Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks told CNN.

Beyond rising sea levels and extreme weather, climate change has opened up new areas of strategic competition like the Arctic and intensified the competition for scarce resources, such as the raw materials required to make the lithium-ion batteries crucial to electric vehicles.

“It’s something like $750 billion of investment worldwide going on in lithium-ion batteries,” Hicks said. “The challenge is most of that is happening in China. They dominate that supply chain. It’s a significant national security challenge for us.”

Hicks, the first woman to hold the Pentagon’s number two position, leads the military’s different efforts on climate change. On a recent two-day trip to Michigan, Connecticut and Rhode Island, Hicks saw work on the first generation of electric military vehicles, including an electric light reconnaissance vehicle at GM Defense.

But electric military vehicles pose their own set of challenges. Although an electric vehicle can be much quieter and emit less of a heat signature — critical advantages on a battlefield — it also needs to be recharged somehow. Refueling a gas vehicle requires supply lines to bring in the fuel, but it is still faster and more efficient than recharging an electric vehicle on a battlefield.

Meanwhile, our Woke military would be obliterated by the Chinese military, which is pushing the exact opposite of Woke. The U.S. military is more concerned with giving sex change garbage to transgenders and Woke uniforms and stuff, along with replacing vehicles that work with ones that don’t. Liberals have long wanted to destroy the U.S. military. They couldn’t defund it in the 70’s, now they’re destroying it from within.

    Oh no ! Rising sea levels. Wont’ that get those littoral ships a little closer to target?

    No worries. The USA isn’t at war anymore, (other than a few thousand SOF scattered around Asia and Africa). It’s the perfect time to slash the military budget and spend what’s left on non-defense vanity projects.
