Bipartisan Group Calls Climate Change Security Threat

A bipartisan group of former government and military officials has declared climate change to be a threat to U.S. security. In a statement released on September 8, 2009 the group stated in part:

“if we fail to take action now, we will have little hope of influencing other countries to reduce their own harmful contributions to climate change, or of forging a coordinated international response.

We must also help less developed countries adapt to the realities and consequences of a drastically changed climate. Doing so now will help avoid humanitarian disasters and political instability in the future that could ultimately threaten the security of the U.S. and our allies.”
