this is the voa special english development report.

american officials have been warned that climate change presents a serious threat to national security. the warning came from a group of former military leaders from all of the united states armed services.

they say effects of climate change should be considered in national security and defense planning. they also say the united states should take a stronger part in helping to limit climate changes at levels that will avoid conflicts.

the study describes climate change as a "threat multiplier." changes in the weather could lead, for example, to fights over water or other resources in areas already at risk of conflict.
