Grapes of wrath

(I haven't read it yet, but) from reports (see US generals urge climate action), National Security and the Threat of Climate Change looks like a sensible advance in thinking from former US military types compared to the Pentagon study I criticised in Einstein's Gravediggers (see also The Daze After Tomorrow and Military Solutions to Climate Change).

[P.S. 16 April: The report is mostly sober and sensible. And on a lighter note the recommendation for greater energy efficiency in the US military ("improved business processes and innovative technologies that result in improved U.S. combat power through energy efficiency") is reminiscent of something David Fleming pointed to with humour in the early 1990s: a drive to put ozone friendly cooling systems on the ICBMs].
