The Biden-controlled U.S. Army has announced that it will now push climate change as one of its highest priorities.
The new plan was outlined in the U.S. Army’s “Climate Strategy” document in with the military claimed it seeks to reduce its emissions by 50 percent by 2030 and reach so-called net-zero by 2050.
Per Fox News:
The strategy aims to establish an “all-electric light-duty non-tactical vehicle fleet by 2027” and an “all-electric non-tactical vehicle fleet by 2035.”
“There are 950 renewable energy projects supplying 480 megawatts of power to the Army today … scoped and planned through 2024,” the Army strategy stated. “The Army will continue these and other efforts under the Army Installation Energy and Water Strategic Plan to maximize resilience, efficiency and affordability on every installation.”
“Climate change threatens America’s security and is altering the geostrategic landscape as we know it,” Army Secretary Christine Wormuth said in a message included in the strategy. “For today’s soldiers operating in extreme temperature environments, fighting wildfires and supporting hurricane recovery, climate change isn’t a distant future, it is a reality.”
Insisting that the “time to address climate change is now,” Wormuth said the Army will “lead by example” as it works to address the effects from climate change that have “taken a toll on supply chains, damaged our infrastructure and increased risks to Army soldiers and families due to natural disasters and extreme weather.”
The new plan comes on the heels of Biden’s order calling on all government agencies to push climate change up top priority status.
The U.S. Army has now made climate change more important than military readiness. Biden is doing all he can to destroy our armed forces and to make Americans less safe just as the world’s worst enemies — such as Russia and China — are feeling their oats, rattling their sabers, and looking to take down America and the west.
