As we previously reported, while he was visiting our troops at Royal Air Force Mildenhall in England before the G-7, Joe Biden told the troops that the Joint Chiefs had said to him when he was vice president that global warming was the “greatest threat facing America.”

“This is not a joke,” Biden declared. “You know what the Joint Chiefs told us the greatest threat facing America was? Global warming.” He said the Joint Chiefs told him it was the greatest “physical threat.”
