Seas to Rise three feet this century, Sell your waterfront property!
According to a print article in this week's Navy Times, at a San Diego workshop in September, the US Navy bought-into the PC nonsense about global warming flooding the world as the polar caps melt, polar bears drown, penguins explode, and Florida is wiped off the map. The article then goes on to explain that this is of particular importance to the naval presence in the Asia-Pacific region in that "...its effects will worsen problems in the fragile, war-stricken area, potentially creating a major humanitarian disaster and civil strife -- and further stressing US military forces." Apparently, global drowning is not viewed as a threat to you and me.
I have been greatly disappointed with my Navy's head-first dive in politically correct nonsense that adds nothing to the Navy's ability to do its job and in fact hinders it. This is just another example of the Obama Administration's injuring the national defense for insane reasons.
More water for them to patrol. (they need a bigger budget)
You're going to need a bigger boat............
Gee when the polar ice caps melt and sea levels rise, I hope Al Gore’s seaside California mansion is the first place to be inundated.
I would think rising seas would give us the advantage having larger ships as the channels would be deeper.
so order some longer periscopes...
” I hope Al Gores seaside California mansion is the first place to be inundated.”
Nah....its off San Ysidro in Montecito. Nowhere near the water, but large enough to cost 3-4000 per month in utilities.
Oh, that's beautiful!
I just came back from Virginia Beach and Norfolk. I did not notice any higher water.
Humanitarian crisis? Will the waters rise in Noah-like proportions over 40 days or will the sea rise be gradual, allowing folks to simply move inland?
They forgot about Guam tipping over.
sounds like the only way to make flag officer is to be a spineless eunich toady (with some notable exceptions). zero tolerance for mistakes does not create leaders.
They do what they are told. When the democrats took over the house and senate, they pushed billions of dollars into the defense budget to study the military impact of global warming.
That way, they could still finance their liberal buddies and global warming alarmists, and pretend they were supporting the military.
But, but, but there are no unicorns... The oceans have no risen in 60 years. NO unicorns. None. Zero - Zip.
Noah gathers wood...
Ok so you live on the beach for a hundred tyears and the sealevel rises 36 inches in those one hunderd years. What do you do? (Pick One)
A) Build a seawall that is 3 feet high, but hurry, you only have a hundred years to complete the project.
B) Do nothing and drown, very, very slowly.
C) Move away from the beach to a safe area.
D) Institute global communism, and murder 2 billion people in re-education camps, until everyone understands how serious global warming is.
But i thought His Wonness fixed all that.
“Seas to Rise three feet this century”.... the Obama Administration sues God.
