    Article

    Deshalb ist die Interpretation des Klimawandels in ein Sicherheitsproblem so irritierend. Sie schafft eine doppelt Ungerechtigkeit.

    It wasn’t the events of September 11th that changed the world, but the events of September 12th and beyond, when the Bush administration took the world to war in response; that changed the world, and continues to threaten U.S. and global security, and shred U.S. democracy.

    Phyllis Bennis
