Trump Drops Climate Change From List of National-Security Threats

President Trump announced Monday a new national security strategy for the United States, focusing on protecting the homeland and the American way of life, promoting American prosperity, preserving peace through strength and advancing the influence of America . . .

Obama once told Coast Guard personnel “climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to national security.”

“We need to act and we need to act now,” he declared. “Isn’t that the true hallmark of leadership. When you’re on deck, you stay vigilant, you plan for every contingency. If you see storm clouds gathering … you don’t sit back and do nothing. You take action. Anything less is negligence. It is a dereliction of duty . . .

Trump, however, referenced climate change only briefly, when he said, climate policies “will continue to shape the global energy system.”

“U.S. leadership is indispensable to countering an anti-growth energy agenda that is detrimental to U.S. economic and energy security interests,” he said. “Given future global energy demand, much of the developing world will require fossil fuels, as well as other forms of energy, to power their economies and lift their people out of poverty.” (Read more from “Trump Drops Climate Change From List of National-Security Threats” HERE)
