Delingpole: NATO’s New Mission – Saving the World from ‘Climate Change’

NATO has a new mission. Defending the West from the Russians is so last century: now it wants to save the world from ‘Climate Change.’

According to an op-ed, written by NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg:

There are lot of heroic assumptions in that paragraph. Perhaps it was written in the hope that Joe Biden will be America’s next President. Certainly, there’s no chance that President Trump would be swayed by such a flimsy argument nor approve of such mission creep.
