The US Defense department issued a report on October 13, 2014 suggesting that changes in sea levels and availability of water and food due to climate change will make the world unstable in multiple ways. According to www.oilprice.com, the conclusion of the report indicates the result of this instability will hinder the US military’s response to the issues. Congress first instructed the Pentagon to incorporate climate change into security planning in 2007, according to The Guardian, since it will change how the US military prepares for war. For more information, see the report published by the Center for a New American Security on Climate Change War Games in 2009.
