CLIMATE CHANGE AND THE WEATHER ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF NATIONAL SECURITY DECISIONS.


James Woolsey was director of the Central Intelligence Agency from 1993 until 1995 under President Bill Clinton and served in four administrations, both Democratic and Republican. And he describes climate change as an “important part of national security.”

Prior to his involvement with the Central Intelligence Agency, Woolsey served as President Jimmy Carter’s undersecretary of the Navy. Woolsey also worked as Ambassador to the Negotiation on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe and General Counsel to the U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services.
