Obama to Coast Guard: Denying Climate Change is a “Dereliction of Duty”


The smug and condescending President Obama that we’ve come to expect reared his ugly face again on Wednesday.

The President showed up to deliver the keynote speech at the United States Coast Guard Academy commencement in New London, Connecticut. It was during his commencement address that President Obama warned the graduating class that they better not go around denying climate change, because denying climate change would be a “dereliction of duty.”

Seriously. Not believing that climate change is the planet-ending, man-made disaster that liberals have been saying it is for the last 20 years is a “dereliction of duty.” It’s complete and utter hogwash.

 Climate change is one of those most severe threats. This is not just a problem for countries on the coasts or for certain regions of the world. Climate change will impact every country on the planet. No nation is immune. So I am here today to say that climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security. And make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country. So we need to act and we need to act now.

After all, isn’t that the true hallmark of leadership? When you’re on deck, standing your watch, you stay vigilant, you plan for every contingency. If you see storm clouds gathering or dangerous shoals ahead you don’t just sit back and do nothing. You take action to protect your ship, to keep your crew safe. Anything less is negligence. It is a dereliction of duty. So to with climate change. Denying it or refusing to deal with it endangers our national security. It undermines the readiness of our forces.
