Nonsense: Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says climate change is a national security issue. Isn't he the fellow who jets across the country to go home on weekends? If he's right, then he's undermining his own mission.
Speaking Wednesday to the Environmental Defense Fund, Panetta claimed: "The area of climate change has a dramatic impact on national security." We've heard this before. Rising sea levels, droughts, storms that are more frequent and intense — they're all going to cause people to migrate in mass numbers, become violent and start wars.
