Wednesday, President Biden told military Air Force personnel stationed in the UK that top Pentagon officials consider climate change the “greatest threat” to America’s National security.
He even added “this is not a joke” to drive in the point.
“When I went over to the tank in the Pentagon when I was first was elected vice president with President Obama, the military sat us down and let us know what the greatest threats facing America were, the greatest physical threats,” Biden explained.
“This is not a joke. You know what the Joint Chiefs told us the greatest physical threat facing America was?” he asked, then answering “Global warming.”
“There will be significant population movements, fights over land, millions of people leaving places because they’re literally sinking below the sea in Indonesia, because of the fights over what is arable land anymore,” the President continued.
