Chief of US Pacific is worried about climate change and so should you!

By Ryan Marx

In a recent article from the Boston Globe by Bryan Bender, "America's top military officer in charge of monitoring hostile actions by North Korea, escalating tensions between China and Japan, and a spike in computer attacks traced to China provides an unexpected answer when asked what is the biggest long-term security threat in the Pacific region: CLIMATE CHANGE."  

Admiral Samuel J. Locklear III met privately with security and foreign policy specialists at Harvard and Tufts universities Thursday and Friday. 

Why is Admiral Samuel J. Locklear III concerned with climate change?

  •    Climate change has the greatest potential to displace nations because of the rising sea levels
  •    Climate change is the most likely thing that will cripple the security environment

There has even been precautions, according to Locklear, set up in case of "what-ifs" from the effects of climate change.  Coming from a man with numerous priorities and worries, climate change should be as important to you as it is to him.

Here is a video of other prominent people who relate how climate change should be a global concern:
