To Obama, Climate Change is a Greater Threat than Terrorism

Misplaced priorities?

President Obama likened climate change to terrorism and the Islamic State during a press conference Tuesday while participating in the U.N. climate talks in Paris.

Obama explained that threats from global warming and the Islamic State (IS, also known as ISIL or ISIS) each demand a consistent effort by the United States to combat them, according to The Hill [1]

“In some ways, [climate change] is akin to the problem of terrorism and ISIL,” the president stated.
