Just days after an Afghan-born U.S. citizen set off homemade pipe and pressure cooker bombs in New York and New Jersey, Barack Obama has signed a new policy directive ordering all major security agencies and the military to consider the effects of climate change in developing national security policy and planning:

“Today, President Obama signed a Presidential Memorandum on Climate Change and National Security, establishing a policy that the impacts of climate change must be considered in the development of national security-related doctrine, policies, and plans,” the White House said. “To achieve this, 20 federal agencies and offices with climate science, intelligence analysis, and national security policy development missions and responsibilities will collaborate to ensure the best information on climate impacts is available to strengthen our national security.”

White House special assistant to the president, Alice Hill, told reporters that the presidential memo will “prioritize climate threats” to identify the most significant risks to the nation’s security and drive full consideration of climate change effects into national security plans and policies.

Oh, Obama has also moved discussions of climate change from the Oval Office to the “Situation Room,” where he meets with national security experts and the military to address active threats to the United States.
