Climate Change put on the military Agenda by Pentagon

As the story here shows, the Pentagon has now decided to put climate change on the military agenda. Despite recent revelations that, at least some of, the data used to make a case for climate change was known to be wrong by the IPCC, but was used anyway (see yesterday’s post).

Although they admit that climate change may not cause conflicts, they claim that it can be an accelerant for conflict.

It will be interesting to see whether this leads to future UN resolutions against countries they consider to be a risk (in terms of climate change) and whether that will be used as a reason for military action…

That reminds me of something... Oh yes, Problem-reaction-solution paradigm anyone?
