Moral Equivalence of War Alert

“India is set to have the world’s first climate army, an exclusive force of nearly half a million ‘soldiers’ trained to fight global warming,” Tom Nelson notes:

India is set to have the world’s first climate army, an exclusive force of nearly half a million ‘soldiers’ trained to fight global warming. A unique strategy to set up this climate army is being launched from Vedaranyam in Tamil Nadu on Sunday.

Flashback [to 2008]: Gore to recruit 10m-strong green army | Environment | The Guardian

Al Gore yesterday launched a drive to mobilise 10 million volunteers to force politicians to act on climate change – twice as many as the number who marched against the Vietnam war or in support of civil rights during the heyday of US activism in the 1960s.

During the next three years, his Alliance for Climate Protection plans to spend $300m (about £150m) on television advertising and online organising to make global warming among the most urgent issues for elected American leaders.

The moral equivalent of war — is there no boondoggle –large or small — it can’t create?

And speaking of global warming, in Germany, they’re covering all the bases:  “Potsdam Climate Institute Now Says To Expect ‘Warmer Colder’ Winters!”

Because, let’s face it, “We Knew Arctic Cold Would be Caused by Global Warming”.

Why not? Everything else is.
