Climate Change and National Security
The phrase “national security” conjures up images of nuclear bombs, hostile governments, and terrorism, but not all significant risks to our national security have a head of state. Climate Change impacts how conflicts arise and our respond to them, both at home and overseas. Learn how climate change is changing the strategy of national security and how civilians can support our men and women in uniform. Climate change is an accelerating risk that we can no longer ignore. Hear from those who have served at senior levels in the United States military and government, and their experience defending our freedom in an age of Climate Change.
The Age of Consequences
