Is Climate Change Really the Biggest Threat?

As part of Barack Obama’s new National Security Strategy, the administration identified a bogus threat: “Climate change is an urgent and growing threat to our national security, contributing to increased natural disasters, refugee flows, and conflicts over basic resources like food and water.” Asked about the rationale behind putting such emphasis on global warming while downplaying Islamic terrorism, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said, “The point that the president is making is that there are many more people on an annual basis who have to confront the direct impact on their lives of climate change … than on terrorism.” Pressed to explain further, Earnest doubled down, saying, “When you talk about the direct daily impact, on the daily lives of Americans, particularly Americans living in this country … more people are directly affected by [climate change] than by terrorism.” Obama’s priorities are mixed up by design. Expand the government here, diminish U.S. standing abroad. Mission accomplished.
