A bipartisan group of military experts released a statement and two reports today arguing that climate change poses a significant risk to U.S. national security.

The statement, released by the bipartisan group Climate Security Consensus project, argues that the effects of climate change will put a strain on water, food and energy supplies, which can result in "unique and hard-to-predict security risks."

"The effects of climate change present a strategically-significant risk to U.S. national security and international security," the statement, signed by a bipartisan group of 25 national security and military leaders including Dr. Geoffrey Kemp, former special assistant to President Reagan for national security affairs and Dov S. Zakheim, former undersecretary of defense under President George W. Bush, said.

The statement argued that the "U.S. must advance a comprehensive policy for addressing this risk."

Some of the climate change risks to international security include "the likelihood of intra or international conflict, state failure, mass migration, and the creation of additional ungoverned spaces," the statement added.

Tom is presently on his way to America to pay homage to Trump, kiss his ass and try to get a selfie.

"... risks to international security include "the likelihood of intra or international conflict, state failure, mass migration, and the creation of additional ungoverned spaces," the statement added..."


The first is the cause for the rest...


And the first is caused by Islamists...

No real surprise in this report...

The Pentagon has had a working group dealing with possible security concerns with Climate Change for several years..

And the U.S., Canadian and Russian militaries have been working on military bases, and future sea ports, within the Arctic Circle -- where they know for a fact that the Arctic Ice Cap is melting..

Despite the denialist claptrap tha Tommy and cohorts keep on spouting.

The Arctic ice cap receeds and expands every year by varying amounts...


The antarctic ice level is on the increase...


So... what's your point...!?
