UK is failing to put climate crisis at centre of national security measures,

The US, Germany and other countries are putting the climate crisis at the heart of their national security plans but the UK is failing to do likewise, experts have told the government. Extreme weather and heat are killing increasing numbers of people, damaging economies and forcing millions around the world to flee their homes, adding to an already unstable geopolitical situation, MPs were told on Tuesday at a select committee hearing. The climate crisis has become a “threat multiplier” that can add to instability and the risk of unrest in many countries and is therefore an international security issue, parliament’s environmental audit committee was told. The increasing dangers of floods, droughts and other damage to vital infrastructure also makes the climate crisis a national security problem within the UK. UK.

          This is absurd, UK government needs prioritise climate action and take it seriously. Climate change effects are dangerous and must be treated as a threat to the growth of any nation.

            The leadership of the UK needs to do better. They should come up with better policies that protect its people from the adverse effects of climate change.

              This is a concerning oversight. Integrating climate risks and mitigation strategies into security planning is crucial for enhancing resilience and addressing multifaceted threats posed by environmental change.

                This is outrageous! The UK needs to wake up and smell the coffee. Climate change isn't just about polar bears anymore, it's a major security threat.
