CLIMATE change is as big a threat to world peace as war, Boris Johnson will warn tomorrow.
The warming planet is driving insecurity across the globe, the PM will say.
He will tell the UN Security Council that warlords capitalise on the scramble for resources as extreme weather and hunger uproot communities.
Mr Johnson will add: “Unlike many issues the council deals with, this is one we know exactly how to address.”
He will urge action to help vulnerable countries adapt to climate change, cut pollution and greenhouse gases and so protect biodiversity, prosperity and security.
Broadcaster Sir David Attenborough will echo Mr Johnson’s words.

He will tell the meeting: “If we bring emissions down with sufficient vigour we may yet avoid the tipping points that will make runaway climate change unstoppable.”
In a video message, he will warn the 15-member council that the UN’s Cop26 climate summit in Glasgow in November might be the “last opportunity to make the necessary step-change”.
