Pentagon: Global warming a threat to national security

Global warming is set to "pose profound strategic challenges to the United States," possibly prompting "military intervention to deal with the effect of violent storms, drought, mass migration and pandemics." (NY Times)

There are a few ways the military would be affected. Melting polar ice caps will lead to a new shipping lane to defend. Seaside military installations will be at risk of rising sea levels, severe storms. And of course, the military could be called in to support areas ravaged by severe weather.

Interesting, the NY Times write-up uses "climate change" in the headline and opening paragraphs, but eventually says "global warming" around paragraph four.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
