Description: Memorial Day reminds us that every day America’s sons and daughters serve and sacrifice to keep our nation strong. We at SACE believe that the military’s work to address the effects of climate change and to advance energy security is a critical part of that strength.
Join us for a webinar to better understand the relationship between national security and climate change.
Top defense and intelligence agencies have identified climate change as a key security risk because it aggravates stressors such as poverty, environmental degradation, political instability, and social tensions that can foster or exacerbate violent conflict. Already, military services in our country are working to become ever more resilient and meet the challenges of basing, training, equipping and operating in a changing world.
In partnership with the Center for Climate & Security, SACE will be joined on this webinar by General Ron Keys, USAF (ret), Commander David “Deke” Slayton, USN (ret), and Colonel Mark “Puck” Mykleby, USMC (ret) to discuss the relationship between national security and climate change.
