Under Trump, How Will the U.S. Military Prepare for Displacement Caused By Climate Change?
Recently, America’s climate change denier President removed climate change from the list of national security threats.
For the Real News, I speak about this development with Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell.
According to Col. Wilkerson, Trump’s move has not diminished the Pentagon’s deep and growing concern about climate change. On the contrary, national security simulations run by U.S. authorities foresee the possibility of up to 500 million climate refugees clamouring for access to regions where they can obtain food and water.
