let me pull a few quotes for you:
To the world's military leaders, the debate over climate change is long over. They are preparing for a new kind of Cold War in the Arctic, anticipating that rising temperatures there will open up a treasure trove of resources, long-dreamed-of sea lanes and a slew of potential conflicts.
Shipping lanes could be regularly open across the Arctic by 2030 as rising temperatures continue to melt the sea ice, according to a National Research Council analysis commissioned by the U.S. Navy last year.
this one is my fave:
What countries should do about climate change remains a heated political debate. But that has not stopped north-looking militaries from moving ahead with strategies that assume current trends will continue.
We have an entire ocean region that had previously been closed to the world now opening up
the Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the globe, the U.S. Navy in 2009 announced a beefed-up Arctic Roadmap by its own task force on climate change that called for a three-stage strategy to increase readiness, build cooperative relations with Arctic nations and identify areas of potential conflict
The Navy seems to be very on board regarding the reality of climate change and the especially large changes we are seeing in the Arctic
Tell me again about Climate Change being a farce...
And for those of you keeping score at home, when you say Climate Change is a conspiracy, a joke or a farce, you are basically laughing in the face of US servicemen, and other military personnel from the 7 other Arctic bordering nations.
