Climate and Security November 12, 2012 : 7:16 PM

The National Research Council has just released a must read report on the climate crisis’ impact on security:

“Climate change is accelerating, and it will place unparalleled strains on American military and intelligence agencies in coming years by causing ever more disruptive events around the globe, the nation’s top scientific research group said in a report issued Friday.”

“The group, the National Research Council, says in a study commissioned by the C.I.A. and other intelligence agencies that clusters ofapparently unrelated events exacerbated by a warming climate will create more frequent but unpredictable crises in water supplies, food markets, energy supply chains and public health systems.”
