It turns out that the American military establishment does not deny the climate crisis, which Ralph talks about with world security expert, Michael Klare, author of “All Hell Breaking Loose: The Pentagon’s Perspective on Climate Change.” Also, Ralph answers listener questions and talks impeachment.


Professor Michael Klare is the author of 15 books including Resource Wars: Blood and Oil, Rising Powers, Shrinking Planet, and The Race for What’s Left. He is the director of the Five College Program in Peace and World Security Studies at Hampshire College. Professor Klare is also the defense correspondent for The Nation magazine. And his latest book is entitled, All Hell Breaking Loose: The Pentagon’s Perspective on Climate Change.

“Right now, the major preoccupation of the U.S. military is to prepare for a future war with China. Well, I could tell you, based on the scientific evidence that the Chinese military is going to have zero time for fighting America in another decade or so, because China is going to be completely preoccupied with defending its shores against rising water and the rest of the country from spreading deserts, and drought and floods and fires.”

Professor Michael Klare, author of All Hell Breaking Loose: The Pentagon’s Perspective on Climate Change

“In Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America, they [military planners] see a future in which agriculture collapses in those areas, sending huge waves of migration across continents, headed to this country, to Europe, along the way producing chaos [and] mass pandemics.”
