The pentagon says that global warming is an immediate national security threat!
He pointed to the conflict with the Islamic State group in Syria, which he stressed was not caused by climate change. But, he said, tensions were exacerbated by a dramatic decline in precipitation, which, combined with poor management of natural resources, led to extreme water scarcity and the displacement of more than 1.5 million people.
“Climate change makes a number of other security issues worse, so we can’t ignore it. And if we do ignore it, then we’re also ignoring key drivers of instability, key drivers of conflict and potential drivers of terrorism that will come back to haunt us down the road,” Femia said.
Forty years ago, the CIA said that global cooling was an immediate national security threat – with identical symptoms as the current global warming immediate national security threat.
