Sanders: Climate Change Will Cause ‘International Havoc and War’

At Howard University in Washington, D.C. Monday night, Sen. Bernie Sanders declared that climate change is an “existential threat” that will lead to “international havoc and war.”

Climate change is a national security issue “because if people cannot grow the crops they need, if people cannot find clean water to drink, there will be massive migrations of people all over the world,” Sanders told students at a rally to promote the Green New Deal. “It will put increased pressure on limited natural resources and cause international havoc and war.”
