NIC looks at climate change

The National Intelligence Council delivers a classified 58 page assessment to Congress on the "National Security Implications of Global Climate Change to 2030." It's a "what if" document. This puts climate change in the same category as nuclear proliferation, terrorism, and so on. Listen to the NPR podcast, which quotes a variety of specialists familiar with the document, many of whom echo the same points Small Precautions has been making for years, namely that the places which will be most badly effected will be places that re already unstable, poverty stricken, and poorly government. "It's Bangladesh, not Holland, we're worried about," says one official familiar with the content of the report.
