Climate Change Is Adversely Affecting Our National Security – Ed O’Rourke

See this article from the New York Times. Why should climate change deniers pay attention? One co-author was a four star general in the U.S. Marine Corps and currently the Brookings Institute president. There are no tree huggers here.

Opinion | Despite What Trump Says, Climate Change Threatens Our National…
The president is trying to subvert the science that informs the intelligence community.

When I was a student at Saint Thomas High School I was wondering what it was like to live during the Renaissance, the Enlightenment and World War II. Now I realize that this is the most exciting time to be alive. We face threats to our existence from nuclear weapons, climate change and unrest caused by the greatest wealth inequalities in human history.

We have the Internet, Youtube, the Hubble telescope and everything else showing scientific, social, political and economic thought that surpassing previous history with Aristotle, Saint Thomas Aquinas, Thomas Jefferson and everybody else. We had great thinkers and perhaps we have even better ones now.

The greatest previous mobilization was the Allied effort to beat the Axis Powers. I ask humans to save human, animal and plant life for a mobilization with more scope than the WWII example when we came face to face with Absolute Evil and overcame it. Today’s young generation is witness to history’s deepest transformation.

Sincerely,

Ed
