Climate change is not trivial; nor are its security implications.In fact, the U.S. military has recognized climate change as a major security risk for more than a decade, making it a world leader on this front.The U.S. military has long been integrating climate change into our planning.It is too early to say what the Trump administration will do when it comes to climate change.The truth is that it is in America's best interest, in terms of both security and the economy, to remain on the path toward a cleaner future. Trump's administration will need to continue the U.S. military's work and create a more resilient national security strategy. The American Security Project, of which I am CEO, looks forward to providing the Trump administration with relevant advice and solutions. We will also call the administration to account if it fails to protect U.S. interests adequately.Denying the reality of climate change will not make it go away; rather, it will erode the economy and expose the U.S. to serious risks.The threat of climate change does not sit neatly on either side of the left-right divide; it is – and must remain – part of U.S. strategic planning.
