Climate Change and the Threats to Global – and National – Security
The world is heating up. Despite the skepticism from climate change deniers, our bases and stations are literally going under water, and our military is seeing conflict accelerate – thanks to climate change. Increasing catastrophic weather is causing undeniable humanitarian crises – to which we have to respond. What does the future portend? What should we be doing about it? Who is most affected? Brigadier General Cheney will address these issues, and many more, from a national security standpoint.
