Security Consequences of Climate Change
A look at global and national dimensions

Throughout the eons, climate change has been an integral part of our atmospheric conditions, but the pace at which it affected our planet was slow and imperceptible and it offered ample time for adaptation to the flora and fauna of the Earth.

Though climate change is causing grim consequences for humanity, e.g. increasing temperatures, melting glaciers, desertification, weather change, disturbance in atmospheric circulation and ocean currents, rising sea level and seawater intrusion, its most serious impact that is still underreported, unnoticed and underestimated will be on global peace and security.
