War on Climate Change Petition

From this tweet by Dan Rosen I learn that there is a petition at the White House site for “Declaring War on Climate Change”.

The authors of that petition probably don’t realize that this global meltdown crisis actually is caused by the evil alien Khalmorot for entertainment purposes (his HEAT GAMES television show). And the American government and Congress also don’t understand that fact. If they did, there would be no need for this kind of petition.

Therefore I am afraid that there will be no “War on Climate Change” declared any time soon.

But this is a good occasion to look (again) at all the great things president Obama can do for the climate in his function as Supreme Commander of the armed forces.

He can push for even more renewable energy in the supply chain of the Armed Forces. They are doing that anyway already, since it makes a lot of sense to get energy without fuel in places where it is difficult to transport fuel to.

Then take it a couple of steps further. For one, install massive solar capacity in all those countries the Americans occupy. That way, the Americans would be actually doing something useful with their military machine for a change.

And start friendly competitions in some desert or other with other military forces of the world on which country is able to install solar faster. That would have the added benefit of helping keep peace.

The beauty of all this is that there is no way the Republicans in Congress can block it.
