Kerry: Climate Change is Not Just About Bambi, it Threatens Security of the U.S.

Tuesday at Virginia’s Old Dominion University, Secretary of State John Kerry warned that climate change is a security threat to the United States.

Kerry said, “The reason I have maned climate change a priority  in my current role as Secretary of State it’s not simply because climate change is a threat to the environment. It’s because by fueling extreme weather events undermining our military readiness, exacerbating conflicts around the world climate change is a threat to the security of the United States. And indeed to the security and stability of countries everywhere.”

He added, “Long story short, climate change is not just about Bambi it’s about all of us.”
