What happened: The US Navy has dismantled its Task Force on Climate Change, which was designed to use the best available science to prepare naval leadership for global shifts in sea levels, melting ice sheets and ocean temperatures. The task force was shut down in March 2019 without a public announcement and climate change science and information has been scrubbed from the Department’s website. According to a Navy spokesperson the task force was “duplicative” and no longer needed, though the task force’s work has not been fully incorporated into the Navy’s decisionmaking process.
Why it matters: The task force was designed to provide the Navy’s leadership with the best available scientific information on climate change, and shutting down the task force prevents the Navy from adapting to the ongoing effects of climate change and using the information to meet its mission of protecting the nation. There is no other body within the Navy specifically assigned to address these challenges, nor is there any other clearly designated group able to provide the climate science that is so important to the Navy and national defense as a whole. The men and women who serve in the Navy deserve to be guided by the best available science on climate change, and the shuttering of this task force could have serious repercussions on the ability of the Navy to operate in a changing climate.
By dismantling its Task Force Climate Change, which has been in operation since 2009, the US Navy has cut itself off from receiving important scientific information on one of the biggest threats facing the Navy, climate change. The task force’s former director, Retired Rear Admiral Jon White, says that while the task force was “never meant to be a never-ending thing,” he sees “little evidence”...

The Navy shutting down "Climate Change" research, it says to me that they are aware of the climate fraud.
Its also a good clue that President Trump is working behind the scenes to unravel climate crisis madness.
The idea that Climate Change is a huge threat to the Navy is complete poo. You want to talk a threat to the Navy? Lets talk about PLAN.
Hmmm, 2009...I wonder who mandated this?
Gosh, Obama of course.
UNION OF CONCERNED MARXISTS
Don’t worry admirals, those ship things float even if the sea level rises.
How many tens of millions did the task force SCAM cost taxpayers? Ya know, the Navy can’t even drive ships without crashing. Perhaps they ought to focus on driver’s ed classes rather than on staring at their navels thinking about globull warming. And what about the NASA Muslim outreach?
They shut it down because it was a giant waste of money.
The Navy has enough on its plate without a climate change mission.
Help Help the sky is falling...oh, never mind.
Somebody must like being an Admiral.
Finally...some sanity amidst leftist idiocy. The Greatest Fraud Ever, nobama, infected the Navy with insane leftists at all levels...as he did everything else.
Which they still have.
What are we talking about when we talk about Climate Change? Weather?
The Navy tracks the weather more closely than any other organization in the world.
“Climate Change” means somebody on the left is always there with leftist agenda input no matter what. It means somebody on the left will always be there altering reality for the leftist agenda no matter what.
Scrap the bull that is “Climate Change”, and we scrap the Bull that is a huge part of the Left’s agenda.
Lack of navigation skills on the bridge is the US Nays current leading threat to its fleet. They need a large dose of toxic masculinity.
Money that would have been better spent training port, starboard, and aft lookouts.
Thank God. They were paying a fortune for “renewable” Jet fuel, when we are swimming in oil again.
Melting ice means better visibility, no?
I guess they need special training on what happens to their ships when the sea levels rise?
But. But .. How will the Navy knows which way the ice floss ?
