Kerry Says Climate Change Threatens National Security

The Hill: Kerry doubles down on climate change
“Secretary of State John Kerry doubled down Wednesday on his comments calling climate change a major national security threat. … ‘It is increasingly going to provide major challenges to food security; to water security; to refugee populations, which it’s going to create; to the stability and instability of countries; to economies. This is growing in its urgency for us to respond to it. And so I will continue down that path'” (Pecquet, 2/26).
