Retired Admiral Campaigns against U.S. Military Capitulation to Human-Hating ‘Climate’ Hoax

March 12, 2019 (EIRNS)—Former Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Thomas Hayward (ret.) has rejected the line from many military officers included in the Quadrennial Defense Review since 2010, that alleged anthropomorphic climate change is a threat to national security, former NASA scientist Larry Bell reported on March 4. Bell wrote in Newsmax (“Indefensible Fiction: Climate Change as Security Threat”) that he had been in contact with Hayward since 2012. “Admiral Hayward was—and is—particularly critical of the elite Central Naval Analysis Military Advisory Board’s predisposition to accept [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] IPCC findings without question, then to nonsensically conclude that climate change constituted a ‘threat multiplier’ posing national security concerns.”

Bell quoted Hayward: “Despite the number of scientific organizations within DOD and the military services, none has challenged the IPCC’s flawed science of climate change, when in fact, available science literature is replete with peer-reviewed research contradicting their assertion that man is primarily responsible.”

Admiral Hayward told the Heartland Institute’s America First Energy Conference in November 2017 that he had been fighting the Defense Department “for a good 10 years” on its decision to declare climate change a national security “threat multiplier” and priority, based on the view of people “who believe humans are the problem.” Instead of building up the combat readiness of the military, he cited the U.S. Navy’s spending, under President Obama’s direction, of $58 billion to create a “Great Green fleet” of all ships, from aircraft carriers down, 50% fueled by biofuels!
