Editor’s Note – Are you kidding me???
For those who feel that the Progressive Left gave up a little too easily on Cap and Trade, I submit that they didn’t give up, they just changed their tactics. Between the EPA, now DHS and endless government regulation, the end goal is still very much in sight!
And why do the American people tolerate these actions? With the fiasco at our airports and government employee pensions bankrupting this country, doesn’t it seeem that Janet Napolitano and Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis would have more important things to do? And don’t even get me started on Eric Holder!
Napolitano Says DHS to Begin Battling Climate Change As Homeland Security Issue
By J. Brady Howell
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.”
The conference did not define “environmental justice,” and the only reference to the task force that can be found is on the DHS Web site. The June 2010 Department of Homeland Security Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan states “climate change has the potential to accelerate and intensify extreme weather events which threaten the nation’s sustainability and security.”
The all day White House Forum on Environmental Justice also included talks by White House Council on Environmental Quality Chair Nancy Sutley, EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson, Attorney General Eric Holder, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, and Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius.
