Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has come up with some loony ideas in her two plus years in the Obama Administration. This is the same Napolitano that declared the system to have worked when the underwear bomber misfired in a passenger plane over Detroit. She is the same person who declared that TSA is working well as they fondle us going through airport screening.
Today Ms. Napolitano outdid herself. In a day-long conference held at the White House on “environmental justice” she announced that the Homeland Security Department would create a task force charged with battling the effect on climate change. It will be called the “Climate Change and Adaptation Task Force.”
According to Napolitano, the task force will be explained “identifying and assessing the impact that climate change could have on the missions and operations of the Department of Homeland Security.” In addition, Napolitano said: “How will FEMA work with state and local partners to plan for increased flooding or wildfire or hurricane activity that is more serious than we’ve seen before? What assistance can the Coast Guard bring to bear to assist remote villages in, for example, Alaska which already have been negatively affected by changes up in the Arctic?”
Joining Ms. Napolitano at the conference was White House Council on Environmental Quality Chair Nancy Sutley, EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson, Attorney General Eric Holder, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, and Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius. This list tells about all we need to know about the group.
Ms. Napolitano and her Department are charged with protecting America and that includes securing our borders. Since she is incapable of executing on this rather straight-forward task, she redefines her role to one where accountability cannot be objectively measured. How convenient. How Progressive.
