In their latest dispatch, News Corps fact checkers call out Congressman Ken Buck’s assertion that climate change is not a valid national security issue based on their reading of some documents published by the Pentagon in recent years.
Congressman Buck wants a military focused on defending the nation from hostile foreign powers and non-state actors that would do us harm. Nowhere in that equation do the unproven theories about climate change play a role.
No fact checking necessary here, kids. The Pentagon’s musings about climate change are not fact – no matter how official a document called the Quadrennial Defense Review sounds. This is nothing more than a Member of Congress demanding some accountability out of the federal government.
