Unreal… Napolitano Says DHS Is Going to Start Battling Climate Change As Homeland Security Issue

Do these people ever look outside?…
— Great Britain and Ireland are experiencing their coldest December ever recorded.
— The southern US is breaking all kinds of cold temperature records.
— The freezing temperatures are causing record deaths in London.
But, facts won’t faze the radicals in the Obama Administration.

Janet Napolitano announced this weekend that the Department of Homeland Security is going to start battling global warming climate change as a homeland security issue.
You just can’t make this stuff up.
CNS News reported:

At an all-day White House conference on “environmental justice,” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced that her department is creating a new task force to battle the effects of climate change on domestic security operations.

Speaking at the first White House Forum on Environmental Justice on Thursday, Napolitano discussed the initial findings of the department’s recently created “Climate Change and Adaptation Task Force.”

Napolitano explained that the task force was charged with “identifying and assessing the impact that climate change could have on the missions and operations of the Department of Homeland Security.”

According to the former Arizona governor, the task force would address specific questions, including:

How will FEMA work with state and local partners to plan for increased flooding or wildfire or hurricane activity that is more serious than we’ve seen before? What assistance can the Coast Guard bring to bear to assist remote villages in, for example, Alaska which already have been negatively affected by changes up in the Arctic?”
