Fiorina is wrong on climate change as national security risk
See this article. Fiorina says Obama is delusional to say that climate change is an immediate and immanent national security threat. It's not just Obama though. A Pentagon report notes that “climate change will affect the Department of Defense’s ability to defend the nation and poses immediate risks to U.S. national security." Another recent study by the US National Academy of Sciences: “There is evidence that the 2007−2010 drought contributed to the conflict in Syria [...] We conclude that human influences on the climate system are implicated in the current Syrian conflict.” To put it politely, Fiorina is the delusional one here.
