WTF? Pentagon orders commanders to prioritize climate change in all military actions

From the Washington Times:
The Pentagon is ordering the top brass to incorporate climate change into virtually everything they do, from testing weapons to training troops to war planning to joint exercises with allies. 
A new directive’s theme: The U.S. Armed Forces must show “resilience” and beat back the threat based on “actionable science.” It says the military will not be able to maintain effectiveness unless the directive is followed. 
It orders the establishment of a new layer of bureaucracy — a wide array of “climate change boards, councils and working groups” to infuse climate change into “programs, plans and policies.” 
The Pentagon defines resilience to climate change as: “Ability to anticipate, prepare for, and adapt to changing conditions and withstand, respond to, and recover rapidly from disruptions.” 
To four-star generals and admirals, among them the regional combatant commanders who plan and fight the nation’s wars, the directive tells them: “Incorporate climate change impacts into plans and operations and integrate DoD guidance and analysis in Combatant Command planning to address climate change-related risks and opportunities across the full range of military operations, including steady-state campaign planning and operations and contingency planning.” 
The directive, “Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience,” is in line with President Obama’s view that global warming is the country’s foremost national security threat, or close to it. Mr. Obama says there is no debate on the existence of man-made global warming and its ensuing climate change. 
Supporters of this viewpoint label as “deniers” any scientists who disagree.

... Trying to be positive here ... We are doomed!

Probably in this case Pentagon is synonym of Secretary of Defense? I refuse to think that the Joint Chiefs would issue such demented order ... Although, if they were not retired by the administration must mean they are in line with them ...

Hate to repeat myself, but when will our patriotic members of Congress find enough ground for impeachment. Isn't misusing of funds and resources to divert actions from protecting the nation from enemy forces be considered as treason? Is treason ground for impeachment?

No one's going to impeach "the first black president of America". He could be killing babies on the WH lawn and he still wouldn't get impeached.

What'd you expect when majority of the white population just took it laying down that all whites are racist and any criticism of Obama is racism?

Try and impeach him and it becomes another "race" thing.

You guys are f***ed. Just like straight people and Christians not saying a thing against encroaching gay BS in marriage and in churches in Europe are now f***ed.
