Looks like retired military brass are fanning out to make the case for a national security angle to climate change. That's going to add a whole new interesting dimension to the political debate.

It also presents a sustained narrative that Marc Morano will have trouble countering at Climate Depot. Many of his headlines and links are intended to mock people he often labels as "climate alarmists." You can't do that to four stars. It won't play well.

So based on today's Climate Depot headline ("Sad to Watch: Vice Adm. McGinn spouts silliness"), it appears that Morano will try blunting the military angle with patronization. Kinda like when you pat an aging, doddering relative on the head, while ruing his declining memory or intellectual capacity.

Sorry, Marc, you're going to have to do better than that.
