Damaged Environment & Climate Change
Climate change is one of many ways humans have changed our environment, but it deserves special consideration since it is likely to have far-reaching, and damaging, consequences.
In the 2010 Joint Operating Environment Report from the U.S. Military Joint Forces, the U.S. military reports that "The impact of climate change, specifically global warming and its potential to cause natural disasters and other harmful phenomena such as rising sea levels, has become a concern.... climate change is included as one of the top ten trends most likely to affect the Joint Force."
