Meanwhile, in other climate news, massive flooding has forced the closing of much of the Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska. Flooding submerged as many as 60 structures on the base, which is the headquarters of U.S. Strategic Command. In January, the Pentagon released a report warning that climate change could threaten two-thirds of the nation’s military installations. In October, Hurricane Michael severely damaged Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida. Vice President Mike Pence is due to visit the damage later today.
