Climate change and its side effects will lead to conflicts, which the U.S. military will have to fight predicts Len Hering.
"Sea level is rising, population is exploding, climates are changing, environments are being affected, and the potential for a secure and prosperous 21st century is at risk"If the world's oceans rise to predicted level of three or four feet, and a strong storm hits the Philippines, 12 million homeless refugees will result, according to the retired Navy Rear Admiral.
