RE: appropriately cynical response
The remedies to environmental crisis are definitely non-military - I think that's why my pal thinks this "crisis" is bullshit. Another thing about it that seems like bullshit is: why is the Pentagon's take on global warming so much more dire than that of the scientists who study it? I've never heard of Britain being a desert in 20 years, or of millions being relocated by rising waters in 5.
It does seem like the military is pre-empting a looming environmental threat, giving it a military spin: "environmental catastrophe is looming, we need an even bigger budget!"
At least the gov't might take the threat seriously. I haven't read the original report though, I'm just squawking.
