Report: Pentagon removed nearly all references to "climate change" in document

The Washington Post reported Thursday that a 2016 draft of a Pentagon report detailing the effects of climate change on U.S. military sites used the phrase "climate change" 23 times.

Chris Mooney, energy and environment reporter for The Washington Post, joins CBSN to look at the differences between the two versions of the Pentagon report.
