This article caught my eye:
Climate change 'may put world at war'
What struck me is the relatively fanciful notion, probably fantasized about by Greendu practitioners, that there might be this coalition of morally upstanding nations to stand up to those nations raping the planet (which is typically considered to be America...developing nations are given a pass). It is the Rebel Alliance taking on the Empire. Canada, Sweden, France, Liechtenstein, etc.; a fearless alliance of Green Righteousness standing against the Axis of Evil (Western nations united under Halliburton). Like I said, it is a bit of a fantasy, so you have to give them creative license.
What makes it funnier to me is the idea of a Green Military. Carbon-neutral hybrid tanks, solar powered helicopters, emission free artillery, etc.
Don't laugh, it could happen here. The idea of emotionally sensitive boot camp and political correctness in the military was probably laughable fifty years ago. Now pretty much everyone is comfortable with the idea.
And not that a more efficient tank engine isn't a good thing...in fact, range is one of the more important aspects of tank design. Hitler's tanks towards the end of WWII (Panther, Tiger I, Koenigs Tiger, Elefant, Stuermtiger, Jagdpanther) were all impressive, well designed, powerful tanks, with superior armour and armament when compared to the tanks of the Allies. But the Battle of the Bulge, Hitler's last offensive, stalled miserably when these behemoths ran out of fuel, and were abandoned in large part. If a Prius engine would have moved these 65 ton monsters, maybe Hitler should have gone Green?
