After decades of debate, most natural scientists have now acknowledged that the earth’s temperature is rising. These scientists also predict that the environmental consequences of global climate change over the next 20-100 years will be significant.This gradual realization of the existence and environmental impact of global warming has spurred a parallel discussion among national security academics and policymakers about the security consequences of climate change.
