Climate Change: National & Regional Security Threat Multiplier for Australia
Jason D. Söderblom
Security Solutions, No. 52, pp. 58-68, March/April 2008
Tuvalu's mainland is only about 3,300km from Australia, and they are familiar enough to use the Australian dollar as their national currency. Is global warming only a national threat for Tuvalu and their immediate regional neighbours or for Australia too? It is not just about geography - it is necessary to consider the effect of global warming on world health, migration, defence policy, trade and, ultimately, the threat of foreign conflicts, organized crime and terrorism.
