House Republicans passed anamendment Thursday blocking theDepartment of Defense (DOD) from financing its climate change and national security plan. The amendment passed 216-205, with not a single Democrat voting in favor.
DOD and other national security experts have warned that climate change is a national security threat, but Republicans who voted against funding thePentagon’s climate plan said it was a distraction from other threats.
Experts say the DOD climate directive, which was released in January, would save the organization money in the long run and help the U.S. prepare for climate change.
Think back awhile when it was decided to have the military use biofuel and it cost so much more to use than normal fuel. How about when Pelosi had the White House change to biodegradable products which turned out to cost more and really did nothing for the environment?
We have seen the impact of failed energy production from wind, solar, and ethanol. All have shown to cost more in the long run
