Forget about a nuclear Iran or the Secret Service palling around with hookers, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is calling climate change a major threat to our national security.

"The area of climate change has a dramatic impact on national security," Panetta told the Environmental Defense Fund last night. "Rising sea levels, severe droughts, the melting of the polar caps, the more frequent and devastating natural disasters all raise demand for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief."
