A quick scan of the news today and one sees headlines like:
Those headlines sharing space with the following:
While all of that is going, we get this from the President of the United States during a commencement address at the Coast Guard Academy:
"The threat of a changing climate cuts to the very core of your service," Obama told the 224 graduating cadets, who studied the impacts of global warming as part of their curriculum.
"It will affect everything that you do in your careers," Obama added, noting that sea levels were expected to rise by 1 to 4 feet (30-120 cm) in the coming century.
"Around the world, climate change increases the risk of instability and conflict," he said. "Make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country. So we need to act, and we need to act now."
"Denying it or refusing to deal with it endangers our national security," he added. "It undermines the readiness of our forces."
I don't know how else to say this folks... I really don't... so pardon the bluntness but...
We're in serious shit with this President at the helm and with the idiots that are feeding him this sort of garbage.
Dear God, forgive the cursing... but please, have mercy on us.
