All Hell Breaking Loose: The Pentagon’s Perspective on Climate Change
Climate change. Despite what some high-ranking politicians might want you to believe, it’s very much real, and the consequences of climate change will be felt for decades to come. One of the primary forces working to adapt to climate change and realize the severity of the situation is the Pentagon, which may surprise some people given the current political climate in the US.
Despite the politics and social gamesmanship, the Pentagon has to deal with the real world, particularly when it comes to keeping soldiers and US military assets safe, and to do so, it has to confront the obvious: climate change is real.
All Hell Breaking Loose takes you into the heart of climate change prep in the US military, exploring not only Pentagon assessments of climate change but also the actions already being taken to mitigate its effects on operational effectiveness in the field. It’s a fascinating angle on the subject to explore, one that combines both the scientific facts and solution-based, real-time reaction to the threat.
It’s both sobering and encouraging to see so much detail and consideration given to the topic by a government entity, particularly one with the reach and influence of the Pentagon. Klare has done a marvelous job of compiling reports, firsthand accounts, and key sources to bring readers to the frontlines of a battle that will affect us all.
