Climate Security at Gore's hearing

I just thought it would be interesting to put in some quick thoughts as I watch today's Senate Foreign Relations Committee with Al Gore testifying.

Kerry's openning statement at Gore's hearing really focused on the security aspects of climate change, particularly focusing on migration, rainfall, and shrinking glaciers in the Himalayas.

Lugar's opening statement, however, focuses more closely on technology, science and 'energy security.' Then, he shows his farming background by putting a plug in for genetically modified crops and biotech. This is an interesting tack, that I haven't heard before.
