China Daily | Updated: 2007-04-24 07:14

To say global warming is serious has become a politically correct statement in this age. But some people have moved the issue into the category of security.

The United Nations Security Council convened last week to deliberate on climate change. Even retired US admirals and generals have issued warnings that global warming poses a "serious threat to America's national security" and the United States likely will be dragged into fights over water and other shortages.

Similarly, the Pentagon alerted the world to the scenario that military confrontation may be triggered by a desperate need for natural resources such as energy, food and water rather than by conflicts over ideology, religion or national honor.
