I've written several times before about how the climate crisis is not only an environmental and economic issue, but a security one as well. The CIA agrees.
According to UPI:
"The Central Intelligence Agency announced plans to launch a center on climate change to examine the potential security risks of environmental issues. The CIA said it was working on its new Center on Climate Change and National Security to examine the national security impact of environmental issues such as population shifts, rising sea levels and increased competition for natural resources."
