I. IMPORTANT TO RECOGNIZE CLIMATE CHANGE THREAT
Nowadays, climate change is one of the most important issues discussed by people in the world. Climate change is the world’s catastrophe caused by human activity which increases the concentration of greenhouse gasses in the earth’s atmosphere, particularly carbon dioxide (CO2) from fossil fuel use. This will cause the global average temperature increase, rise in sea level, and altered weather patterns. As the result of global average temperature increase, the oceans absorbs more of this heat, seawater expands and causes a rise in sea levels. Furthermore, there will be a significant impact and many of the most damaging consequences will be associated with the extremes and with altered weather patterns in particular.
In general, the climate change will affect the socio-economic factors, such as the loss of infrastructure, resource scarcity, and mass displacement of people. With most of the world’s cities located on coasts or river deltas, there is a clear threat from this rising sea levels and extreme weather events to human life. At the same time, there will be a greater scarcity of three essential resources: food, water, and energy. This scarcity will be occurring in a world where the global population is expected to increase from today’s six and a half billion to over nine billion by 2050 and this will result the mass displacement of peoples in the world.
II. THREAT IS MORE VISIBLY, CONCRETE, AND MORE DIFFICULT TO DEAL WITH
In order to limit the possibility of terrorism act that is caused by the climate change, the Law Enforcement has to better their performance. Nowadays, threat is more visible, concrete, and more difficult to deal. There are some areas that should be considered, such as: demanding enhanced and more border security to limit the infiltration of terrorism act. Since climate change has become the world’s issue, it will erase the country limit and Law Enforcement should be more focus in anticipating this matter. Climate change threat is therefore, becoming an increasingly important part of international relations. Furthermore, the concrete and visible threat is going to occur in all over the world, for example, there is some evidence that in some current conflicts, they were caused by the drought and the resultant lack of water supplies. That concrete and visible threat is now become our responsibility to manage the better world and if we are not doing it, so that matter is going to be more difficult to be handled.
III. MAYBE UTILIZE BY TERRORISTS TO PROMOTE EXTRIMISIM/ MOUNT ATTACK
Those threats will be related tightly to the security consequences. Threat which comes from the result of climate change has a devastating impact to all people in the world. For example, if responses to the aftermath of the natural disasters are inadequate, then people may begin to lose confidence in the government’s ability to protect them and this may cause a breakdown in trust between the government and general public if government reaction is not enough to fulfill people’s needs. Furthermore, it will raise a protest aimed at governments over inadequate policy changes or aimed at corporations over environmental damage and it will increase the possibility for those who will apply violence and sabotage. Moreover, this situation can be easily infiltrated by the terrorists to do their terrorism act. So that is why climate-related factors could play an important role in triggering or prolonging conflict and the risks of climate change demand a rethink of approaches to security.
