Global Warming Is A National Security Risk. Why Don’t We Treat It Like One?

Here are the facts: Climate change kills more people than terrorism. It has worsened the war in Syria and it will soon create a refugee crisis that army generals have called “the greatest threat to the 21st century.”

Climate change isn’t just an inconvenience, it’s a global security threat.

We talk about ‘saving the planet’ and shrinking ice caps. And that might appeal to some, but it isn’t enough to sway sceptic politicians and giant corporations.
