Yes, climate change should be considered a threat
People who feel that climate change should be considered a threat to national security point to the damage hurricanes did this year in Houston and Puerto Rico as proof of how dangerous it is. They believe that the rising sea levels are also a danger to our naval bases around the world. In addition, many worry that as climate change hurts more countries around the world the refugee problems will get worse, destabilizing more areas and making the world a more dangerous place. Finally, as the weather of the planet changes, it could really hurt farms and other food sources around the world potentially causing major food shortages.
This is a disastrous policy. Climate refugees will increase causing instability throughout the world. Nations should be deeply troubled and put global pressure on this administration especially the island nations that have had a tragic year.

So #climatechange that costs our country billions of dollars a year does not constitute a national security issue ???

This is abjectly stupid. Think of shore bases on coastlines. Sea level rise is an issue that the Navy is concerned about.

His only agenda is to undo every single thing Obama did. It's all I can think of. He has no vision himself. No understanding of how things work. No compassion. No concern. No long-range goals. Just undo every single thing Obama did. That's not leadership or governance.
