Department of Homeland Security Vows to Protect America From… Climate Change

September 25, 2014

There are two worlds: One is reality, the other is the world as progressives wish to see it.

In the real world, all hell has broken loose in the Middle East and there are credible terror threats against the United States. ISIS is beheading Americans and Europeans, butchering Christians and consolidating power to overthrow the west.

In the world as progressives wish to see it, the greatest threat to mankind is their new favorite campaign issue of climate change. Obviously, someone at the top of the Department of Homeland Security is living in the progressive version of the world…

US Homeland Security moves to tackle climate change risks

Protecting the infrastructure of American cities from the effects of climate change is rising on the agenda of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, according to a top agency official.

“Increasingly, we’ve moved not only from a security focus to a resiliency focus,” said Caitlin Durkovich, assistant secretary for infrastructure protection at Homeland Security, an agency better known for its fight to curb terrorist threats.

Durkovich spoke Thursday on a panel at the Rising Seas Summit, a three-day conference organized by the U.S.-based Association of Climate Change Officers to discuss tools and ideas on building resiliency, particularly against rising sea levels.
