Let the reports speak for themselves.

Is there a changing climate? The United States intelligence services and the Defense Department have decades of reports that call out the increasing risks of climate change -- to our national defense. See Climate change poses security risks, according to decades of intelligence reports.

These are not some "pointy-headed scientists" ringing the alarm bells, it is our own uniformed military leadership.

Read the article and the excerpts over the years that call out the issue of climate change.
