“Scientific evidence has confirmed that the future viability of life on earth is threatened by climate change.
|Dr Kirsten Davies.|
“Life sustaining eco-systems are being disrupted and many may become unviable, rendering life on earth untenable.
“The impacts of climate change have situated the planet in an era of the Warming War, a term coined in this Article, that describes the planetary threats to global security posed by the warming climate which is the result of the impacts of climate change.
“The Warming War term encompasses how climate change is undermining global stability by influencing resource-driven conflict, loss of territory through sea- level rise, and mass-migration.”
So say Dr Kirsten Davies and Thomas Riddell in the introduction to their paper “The Warming War: How Climate Change is Creating Threats to International Peace and Security.”
(Dr Davies was one of the many presenters at the three-day National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF) conference in Melbourne that ended yesterday - May 10, 2018)
