In his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech in Oslo:

"There is little scientific dispute that if we do nothing, we will face more drought, more famine, more mass displacement – all of which will fuel more conflict for decades," and then he drew attention to the question of security in the climate problem

"It is not merely scientists and environmental activists who call for swift and forceful action – it's military leaders in my own country and others who understand that our common security hangs in the balance."

Huh??? "swift and forceful action" "military leaders" "security hangs in the balance" How on earth do these words fit into a discussion on the environment?
