It is right in our face...
Funny how the committee members providing oversight on programs like this kinda went asleep...Or did they???
It’s for the chil’run, Stevie.
The head of this group:
Dr. Daniel Y. Chiu
Is a “climate change” globalist:
Prioritizing Climate Change for Policy Makers:
Dr. Daniel CHIU considered the 2010 Quadrennial Defense Review to be an acknowledgement by the US leadership of the existence of climate security risks. What the leadership needed now were risk-benefit scenarios as part of a decision making tool.
The Use of the Military in the Context of Climate Change:
Dr. CHIU, in response, referred to the analogy, arguing that the rabbit is often very complex. For the DoD it was a challenging task to strike a balance between reactive (traditional) and proactive (new) capabilities and operations that need to be properly and timely planned and executed. Thus, in a more complex, globalised and less predictable security environment the rabbit needs to be shot with a shotgun at times. Dr. Chiu also emphasised that assisting partners and allies in building capacities and facilitating deeper cooperation was a very important aspect of the responsibilities of the DoD in order to handle the increasing levels of complexity in security issues.
Future of NATO Operations in connection with Climate Change:
Dr. CHIU recommended to better align the planning requirements for operations (predominantly short-term) and resource management (predominantly long-term) and link the analytical data in order to optimise the use of assets and expensive resources. This included bringing planning processes of Allies together.
Dr. CHIU concluded by arguing in favour of NATO becoming a facilitator of inter-disciplinary thinking and cross-cutting discussions that could help to change the mind-set and to raise the visibility of climate change security risks across a broad range of civil and military personnel.
