On the same day the White House Press Secretary made the outrageous claim that Climate Change is a greater threat to Americans than terrorism, Democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse from Rhode Island stood before Congress and stated that Climate Change is a threat to the country’s national security (video below):

Just last week the administration’s 2015 National Security strategy classified Climate Change as, and I quote, ‘an urgent and growing threat to out National Security.’

…The challenge that Climate Change poses to National Security and to emergency preparedness is clearly laid out in the Department of Homeland Security’s 2014 Quadrennial Security Review. It describes the effects of Climate Change as ‘threat multipliers’. With the potential to aggravate hazards to American safety and health.”
