Buttigieg: One of the Biggest Threats to Our National Security Is Posed By Climate Change

‘One of the biggest threats to our national security is the global security threat posed by climate change’

EXCERPT:

BUTTIGIEG: “And, again, a lot of that depends on what we’re investing. And this is nothing new, right? I mean, part of what made the interstate highway system so important was an understanding that our national security in the Eisenhower era was well served by making sure that we had a more connected economy and country. We’re not in the Cold War, this is not the Eisenhower era, but that principle that national security is at stake applies especially when you consider today one of the biggest threats to our national security is the global security threat posed by climate change.”
