Pentagon Warns of Climate Change 'Threat Mulitipliers'
The effects of climate change are "threat multipliers" that will force the Pentagon to rethink how it engages in training, missions and humanitarian aid around the world, the Defense Department said Tuesday in its Quadrennial Defense Review.

It noted climate change would "aggravate stressors" such as "poverty, environmental degradation, political instability and social tensions — conditions that can enable terrorist activity and other forms of violence."
Curbing greenhouse gas emissions is tantamount to alleviating resource competition and land, home, and infrastructure destruction caused by extreme weather that has been associated with climate change, the review said. That also could affect the military's installations and operations, it added.
