US Military blasted for lacking ‘environmentally conscious minds’ unprepared for climate change

A new government-funded study takes an indirect jab at President Trump for pulling out of a costly and dubious global climate accord signed by Obama and chastises the U.S. military for not possessing an “environmentally conscious mindset.” It also claims the Department of Defense (DOD) is “precariously underprepared” for the national security implications of climate change.
