Climate change has a number of implications for national security. Climate-produced crises may feed terrorist movements and destabilize entire regions, as the analysts of the Pentagon who take a puzzled look at national security, say. According to Security and Climate Change article, it influences the world as a threat multiplier for unsteadiness in the most volatile regions.
Having analyzed the national security implications of climate the National Intelligence Council stated that climate change by itself would have considerable geopolitical influence all over the world and would contribute to such problems as poverty, environmental degradation and the national governments. The catastrophes such as storms, drought and food shortage may be among the fateful consequences of a warming planet in coming decades, John M. Broder reports in 2009.
Yet in 2007 Al Gore, a Nobel Prize-winner called on the nations to mobilize forces to avert climate disaster in a way nations are mobilized for war. The Pentagon and the Intelligence Committee took into account the martial metaphor of the scholar. However, they still proceed with the investment of resources into short-term political conflicts instead of paying meticulous attention to climate change programs implementation. In 2008 ninety-nine percent of federal security dollars were spent on military and only one percent went to climate change programs. According to John M. Broder’s report on climate change threat to US security, the Pentagon research workers have examined the issues arising from dependence on foreign sources of energy for years but only now studying the impact of global warming in their long-term plans. Climate change presents a number of challenges for the military, as critical installations will not weather the rising seas and storm surges. Moreover, the shrinking of the ice cap opens a shipping channel that must be defended.
According to General Anthony C. Zinni, the nation will pay for the greenhouse emissions reduction this way or another, and worst of all, it may be paid later in military terms and involve human lives. Priorities of federal budget should be changed – away from military solutions towards real security.
