When Reality Overtakes Theory Climate Risk and Fiduciary Responsibility On February 13, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coates gave written testimony to Congress outlining his assessment of risks facing the United States in 2018 1 . Ranging across familiar topics such as weapons of mass destruction and terrorism, Secretary Coates also highlighted less obvious issues including cybersecurity, disruptive technology, and climate change. > Noting that the past 115 years have been the warmest period in the history of modern civilization, and that the recent few years have been the warmest on record, the testimony concludes that "the impacts of the long-term trends toward a warming climate…are likely to fuel economic and social discontent…through 2018."
