Trump’s team has removed climate change from a list threatening national security.
“Climate policies will continue to shape the global energy system,” the national security strategy states. “U.S. leadership is indispensable to countering an anti-growth, energy agenda that is detrimental to U.S. economic and energy security interests. Given future global energy demand, much of the developing world will require fossil fuels, as well as other forms of energy, to power their economies and lift their people out of poverty.” During his presidential campaign, President Donald Trump mocked President Obama’s consideration of climate change as a threat to national security.
