"The report is a self-fulfilling prophecy," said Mr. Kueter, who believes climate change impact on national security is tenuous. "The authors begin with the belief that the impacts of climate change are negative, and from that only bad consequences can flow. The report is not an objective treatment of the validity of the scientific claims or the veracity of the connections between environmental issues and security concerns."
Jeff Kueter, president of the George C. Marshall Institute, a nonprofit that assesses scientific issues that affect public policy, said the report does not adhere to CNA's creed of "absolute objectivity."
