Leaflet bombs were once a simple, yet deadly way to stop people from visiting a shop or attending a meeting.
But the devices have evolved into a deadly device, which could be a problem for the U.S. government as it prepares to fight a new threat: climate change.
The leaflet devices have become an easy and effective way to deter people from going to and attending a protest, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
The agency issued a new set of guidelines in 2017 that are designed to improve their effectiveness.
These guidelines, released Monday, call for a more nuanced approach to understanding the dangers of the devices and how to counter them.
They also call for better technology and training for public officials.
“We need to look at how we train our employees on the issue, how we make sure we’re using appropriate technology, how to communicate the issue to people who may be in these locations,” U.N. Under-Secretary-General Kofi Annan said at a news conference on Monday.
“And we need to do this before we start a war or any other use of these devices.”
In the U:AIPAC’s 2016 report, the agency recommended a broad and comprehensive strategy to combat climate change, including more training, better equipment, and a strategy to prevent climate-related disasters.
The EPA is currently working on a draft plan that would guide the agency in designing a more robust and comprehensive response to climate change and other threats to the environment, the EPA said in a statement.
The agency also is working with other federal agencies to create a new national plan to respond to the threats posed by climate change by 2020, the statement said.
