A new National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on climate, the first of its kind, warned climate change would fuel global tensions and named 11 countries that are especially at risk from climate change if current trends continue: Afghanistan, Myanmar, India, Pakistan, North Korea, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Colombia and Iraq.
