Climate Security Report: Part Two - Climate Change and Global Security

Climate Security Report: Part Two - Climate Change and Global Security

Ratings: (0)|Views: 3,501|Likes:
Climate change will exacerbate regional and local tensions in ‘hot-zones’ around the world. In these regions, the impacts of a changing climate will act as an accelerant of instability by multiplying problems like water scarcity, food shortages, and overpopulation.

As a global superpower with military forces deployed around the world, the interests of the U.S. and its allies will be impacted by a changing climate. Climate change will cause an increase in frequency of disaster relief responses by U.S. and allied military forces.
