Institute of Policy Studies Report: Climate vs Military security spending.

The Institute of Policy Studies has just released a report comparing US expenditure on military and climate defence. Needles to say that the US is spending vast sums on arms and military wages while spending virtually nothing on preventing the destabilisation of the global climate, which promises to cause mass migration, resource conflict and a wide range of other malodies.
"We will devote 50 times as much to arming the rest of the world as to helping it prepare for and avoid global climate catastrophe."
