National Security Impacts of Climate Change
Please join us for a forum featuring U.S. Senator Angus King, Lieutenant General John Castellaw, and Roger Sorkin, Executive Director and Producer of the American Resilience Project
Climate change is a national security threat that America’s military, intelligence community, and nations around the world are taking seriously. From sea-level rise threatening U.S. bases internationally, to climate change effects like extreme weather and food and water scarcity, climate change is a disruptive force that can lead to political instability and even war.
This event will bring together Maine’s U.S. Senator Angus King, who serves on both the Armed Services and Intelligence Committees, with military and foreign policy experts from the American Security Project and American Resilience Project for a discussion on how climate change will impact America’s national security and what measures Congress and the Defense Department will need to take to address these concerns.
This event is free and open to the public, but for planning purposes we ask that you RSVP.
