Climate change poses a growing security threat and could cause conflict in the Arctic, a group of retired American generals and admirals said on Tuesday. In a new report, the former military officers said the Pentagon had been caught out by the rapid changes under way in the Arctic because of the melting of the sea ice. “Things are accelerating in the Arctic faster than we had looked at,” said General Paul Kern, the chairman of the Centre for Naval Analysis Corporation’s military advisory board, which produced the report. “The changes there appear to be much more radical than we envisaged.”
I wonder if this genius has ever looked at any actual data or imagery from the Arctic.
The Arctic is not melting. The area of multi-year ice has has nearly doubled in the last few years. These people have absolutely no clue what they are talking about.
