The idea that a warming planet threatens stability around the globe is not new. But now we have a critical window to rapidly reduce climate pollution and build resiliency, if we are to avert climate catastrophes. Understanding the impacts of climate change on conflicts between and within nations, as well as the impacts on U.S. military infrastructure and operations, is critical to inform climate mitigation and adaptation action. Join this conversation with U.S. government and academic leaders to explore why and how new national and foreign policy is needed to ensure a more sustainable future.
