BRIT HUME (GUEST): Given the world situation we face now, with threats coming from multiple directions, climate change is a distraction. Climate change -- worrying about climate change is almost a luxury. These are old fashioned threats that come from, you know, world powers that wish us ill. And, you know, China may say "We'll be competitors and we won't be adversaries," or the rest of it. I think China is an adversary. I think Russia is, too. And I certainly think Iran is.

And those threats are more immediate and more urgent than any threat that I think that climate change poses. So, let's just hope that the administration, you know, doesn't get too carried away with this. I was a little disturbed to see John Kerry at the table there today, our climate czar, because, you know, he thinks that's job one and I guess for him it is. But I don't think in terms of our national defense posture it's anywhere near job one.
