'No country will be spared' from effects of climate change, Biden administration reports detail
(CNN)A series of new reports from the Biden administration will issue a stark warning on Thursday: The effects of climate change will be wide-reaching and will pose problems for every government.
"No country will be spared from the challenges directly related to climate change," a senior administration official told reporters in a call previewing the reports.
The four reports -- which President Joe Biden called for in executive orders in January and February -- not only analyze issues currently being made worse by climate change, they examine future threats facing the United States. The release includes a report on migration, a National Intelligence Estimate, and separate reports from the Defense Department and the Department of Homeland Security. The reports come 10 days before the President is scheduled to attend the international climate conference known as COP 26 in Glasgow, Scotland.
"These analyses will serve as a foundation for critical work on climate and security moving forward," a senior administration official told reporters during a call Wednesday evening, on the condition of not being named. "It's important to flag that these analyses reinforce the President's commitment to the United States making evidence-based decisions, guided by the best available science and data."
Among the reports, which were released later Thursday morning, the administration details how climate change is driving migration, the first time the US government is officially recognizing the link between climate change and migration.
It "identifies migration as an important form of adaptation to the impact of climate change, and in some cases an essential response to climate threat," the official explained.#globalwarming #climatechange #carboncompensation #bluesky #climateemergency #climatecrisis #blueskye #blueskyefoundation #greentechexchange #climatenews #biden #elonmusk
