Climate Security

November 13 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

The United States security community is bracing for the national security consequences of climate change. From humanitarian disasters to conflict, water and food shortage, and forced population migration, extreme weather patterns and rising ocean levels will act more and more as accelerants of instability with the potential to draw the United States into new conflicts and exacerbate old conflicts. Climate change is also putting military installations are at risk domestically and abroad, undermining U.S. operational readiness. Join the World Affairs Council for a panel discussion on the security consequences of climate change and what effective policies must look like to address the rising threat.
