The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has announced a "Climate Change Professionals Program" meant to recruit federal employees and recent graduates to assist DHS in its efforts to adjust to climate change and boost resilience, according to DHS.
"The Climate Change Professionals Program will be instrumental in helping the Department adapt to our changing climate by providing hands-on experience and guidance to young professionals interested in climate adaptation and resilience," DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in a statement. "This program will develop the next generation of climate experts, improve climate literacy throughout the Department, and help us execute our Climate Action Plan to remain mission-resilient while reducing our own impacts on the environment."
The DHS news release about the recruitment effort notes that, "Participants in the program will work under the leadership of the Climate Change Action Group. The CCAG is comprised of senior officials from across the Department and focuses on promoting resilience and addressing multiple climate change-related risks, including flooding, extreme heat, drought, and wildfires."
The move highlights how DHS is peddling climate alarmism.
"The climate crisis poses a multi-level threat to the American people, the global community, and DHS operations at home and abroad," the DHS website declares.
The announcement comes even as the nation's southern border continues to be inundated with illegal immigrantsmonth after month.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported 173,620 encounters along the nation's southwest border for November.
Border Patrol agents also continue to apprehend previously convicted criminals, including sex offenders.
