Climate change as a matter of fact at U.S. military bases


Link to report found at Climate-change risks include 128 military sites threatened by rising sea levels, GAO says.  (Stars and Stripes, 12/22/2017)
Drought-induced wildfires scorching California bases. More frequent hurricanes battering island installations. Rising seas that will put many military bases under water in the next 20 years.   
These are some possible climate-change threats that the military must better prepare for in the coming years to protect bases and personnel, the Government Accountability Office said in a report that runs counter to the White House’s climate-change skepticism.
