An often overlooked impact of global heating is the threat to our national security. A new report from national security professionals in the United States concludes that even at scenarios of low heating, every region in the world – including New Zealand and Australia – will face severe risks to national and global security in the next three decades.
If we allow higher levels of global heating in the range of 2 – 4° C the report concludes this will pose catastrophic, and likely irreversible global security risks over the course of the 21st century.
And yet we still have useful idiots who say this is not a climate emergency and that we can can continue with business as usual. What part of “catastrophic global security risks” do they not understand?
