    THE THREAT OF CLIMATE CHANGE TO NATO

    NATO ignores climate change at its peril; NATO must be prepared for rapidly-multiplying threats, including climate change

    Caitlin Werrell, Francesco Femia, and Sherri Goodman, 3 Sept. 2014 (RTCC)

    “Retired US navy admiral James Stavridis, former supreme allied commander Europe, dubbed the upcoming NATO summit in Wales ‘the most important one since the fall of the Berlin Wall because of the clear level of multi-crises’…But despite NATO’s renewed focus on state-based threats, it’s not the same world the alliance dealt with during the cold war…[T]he world population has increased by two billion, the internet and global marketplace connect nations across democratic and authoritarian borders, and transnational threats…litter the international security environment…Overlaid on this landscape is climate change, a ‘threat multiplier’ which…places significant strains on water, food and energy security…Despite legitimate competing priorities, NATO has a responsibility to address the climate threat…[and] make bold decisions on climate change, without taking its eye off other pressing concerns…[A]s the scientific research confirms, climate change is not a future threat. It’s here, and it is changing the very nature of the global security landscape…[T]he 21st century demands a multi-tasking NATO, capable of fending off threats from many directions. And climate change, the consummate threat multiplier, cannot be ignored.” click here for more
