“Over the course of 2016, the
global security landscape darkened as the international community failed
to come effectively to grips with humanity’s most pressing existential
threats, nuclear weapons and climate change … This already-threatening
world situation was the backdrop for a rise in strident nationalism
worldwide in 2016, including in a U.S. presidential campaign during
which the eventual victor, Donald Trump, made disturbing comments about
the use and proliferation of nuclear weapons and expressed disbelief in
the overwhelming scientific consensus on climate change.”
