White House: Climate change ‘urgent and growing’ national security threat.

jpratt27

The White House called climate change a top national security issue in its National Security Strategy released Friday, linking a warming planet to increased extremism, violent conflicts and extreme weather that has battered coastal communities.

The document builds on other Obama administration efforts to convey the scope and breadth that climate change has across sectors of government and society.

Acting soon is key for global as well as national security, the document said. It repeated many of the warnings the Pentagon has made since 2010, when it first said that climate change poses a national security risk.
โ€œClimate change is an urgent and growing threat to our national security, contributing to increased natural disasters, refugee flows and conflicts over basic resources like food and water,โ€ the White House said in the document.
