CCS Co-Director Speaks to Pentagon’s Firm Stance on the Threat of Climate Change

C&S LOGOCCS Co-Director Francesco Femia spoke to California radio station KPFA 94.1 yesterday about the recent release of DoD’s Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR), and the seriousness with which the U.S. military addresses climate change. The conversation ranges from the role of the QDR, to the direct and indirect threats that climate change poses to national security. The conclusion: The U.S. military cannot afford to play politics with such a pressing security issue, and plans to meet the challenge head on.
