“All Hell Breaking Loose: The Pentagon’s Perspective on Climate Change”
Thursday, May 14, 2020
1:00-1:30 p.m. CDT
Register now for WACA’s Cover to Cover conference call on Thursday, May 14, 2020 at 1:00-1:30 PM CT, featuring Michael Klare, Senior Visiting Fellow at the Arms Control Association and Professor Emeritus of Peace and World Security at Hampshire College.
Of all major institutions in American society, none take climate change as seriously as the U.S. military and the Pentagon. Drawing on previously obscure reports and government documents, renowned security expert Michael Klare shows that the U.S. military sees the climate threat as imperiling the country on several fronts at once. The military now regards climate change as one of the top threats to American national security, and is busy developing strategies to cope with it.
