Climate Change and the U.S. military versus Trump Policies

The article discusses the different world views of the Trump Administration and the US Military. US military recognizes that it has to take measures to protect the US from security threats caused by global warming. like mass migrations, flooded naval bases, and shortages of fuel while in battle. The Trump Administration, the denier-in-chief, believes global warming is a hoax perpetuated by the Chinese.

As a result, the DoD has emerged as an unlikely champion of climate action in the Trump government, with the Pentagon declaring emphatically that a rapidly warming world is bringing with it alarming security risks ranging from rising sea level (which threatens naval bases such as Norfolk, Virginia, the largest in the world), to the “mother of all risks” unpredictable and worsening political instability around the globe brought by climate chaos.
