Defense Department Issues Climate Change Roadmap

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - The US Department of Defense (DOD) has issued their 2014 Climate Change Adaptation Roadmap.  The report designates climate change as a “threat multiplier.” It says that, “Rising global temperatures, changing precipitation patterns, climbing sea levels, and more extreme weather events will intensify the challenges of global instability, hunger, poverty, and conflict. They will likely lead to food and water shortages, pandemic disease, disputes over refugees and resources, and destruction by natural disasters in regions across the globe.”

The report’s introduction, written by Secretary Chuck Hegel, acknowledges that fact that, “The military could be called upon more often to support civil authorities, and provide humanitarian assistance and disaster relief in the face of more frequent and more intense natural disasters.”

This report is the third such assessment going back to 2010. Looking back, it states that “certain types of weather events have become more frequent and/or intense, including heat waves, heavy downpours, and, in some regions, floods and droughts.  Sea levels are  rising, oceans are becoming more acidic, and  glaciers an  arctic  sea ice are melting.  Scientists predict that these changes will continue and even  increase in frequency or duration over the next 100 years.”
