Why climate change is not an environmental issue

This video was brought to my attention by mikestasse over at Damn the Matrix.  It makes a very important point: climate change is a national security issue, not an environmental issue.  There are no trade-offs to be made between “the environment” and economics/development in regard to climate change. This is about the future of human civilization and quite likely the habitability of the Earth for both humans and many of the species currently existing.  Climate change not only doesn’t respect borders – extreme climate change, which is where we are headed now without major and quick action, will make national borders meaningless and destroy national economies.

It is edited and narrated by Ryan Louis Cooper and inspired by an article by David Roberts.
