Recently, President Obama told the graduating class of Coast Guard cadets that climate change and global warming are immediate risks to our national security. Well, if that is true, and they truly endanger the security of the U.S., why aren't we at war with India and China over their massive increases in carbon output?
And, I only made that "war" comment to show how ridiculous the President's "national security" argument is. Of course, if he truly believes what he is saying, then maybe we should be at war against the polluters.
