Yes, and they have been doing so for a while now. Also, regardless of what the religiously obsessed/business co-opted Republicans in the House say or "order", the U.S. military will follow the orders given to them by the President & Secretary of Defense.
NO, of course not.
But our military must prepare for the 21st century....a peace force in its place....
And global climate change has nothing to do with our antiquated military.
Now, before some right-wing whackos start crowing about worshiping at the church of Gore, let me be clear. Al Gore is not a scientist. He is not a person you should listen to on a scientific subject. He's a spokesman, and a politician. And he deceived you about ice melting. But let's at least be accurate about it.
Al Gore deceived you by specifically leaving out a timeframe. "If" the greenland ice caps melted, we'd see a sea level rise of ___. That's true. What he didn't mention is that at current rates, this would take centuries. Not exactly a lie, but it's certainly deceptive.
Finally, the "ice caps are growing!" rhetoric tends to stem from a single-year uptick in arctic ice extent. As far as climate science goes, that's about as stupid as saying "well, it rained more today than yesterday, so the world must be getting wetter." A one-year change is not indicative of a trend, particularly when that one-year change is just a slight recovery from the lowest point recorded in a 30 year downward trend.

One of you will end up here next!
If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.
If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
Still ice on Lake Superior – never before seen to this extent in the satellite era
Well its looking like the ice caps are not melting just migrating to places like lake Superior. Check out how much ICE is STILL in lake superior.
