So the proved hoax is the biggest threat we face in the Pacific. OK, can you say stupid people say the dumbest things.
A top officer for the U.S. Navy at an event in Cambridge, Mass., last week talking about the current atmosphere in the Pacific region of the world — what with North Korea’s recent threats and potential conflicts between other countries — chose to speak about another looming threat: climate change.
As we first brought to you on TheBlaze blog, Navy Admiral Samuel J. Locklear III on Friday told scholars at Harvard and Tufts universities that climate change would be “the most likely thing [...] that will cripple the security environment, probably more likely than the other scenarios we all often talk about.’’
Locklear said in an interview with the Boston Globe the Navy will hold an exercise in May with several Asian countries to run through “what-if” scenarios and that supplies are being collected in strategic locations for potentially catastrophic events.
“The ice is melting and sea is getting higher,” Locklear said, according to the Globe. “I’m into the consequence management side of it. I’m not a scientist, but the island of Tarawa in Kiribati, they’re contemplating moving their entire population to another country because [it] is not going to exist anymore.”
