​​​​​​Climate Change and National Security:  People not Polar Bears

This talk will discuss why climate change is a national security issue.  Climate change is about people, about water, and about change itself.  I will cover some of the basic science and why mainstream climate scientists are very confident of their findings, how this challenge is being addressed, and what are the greatest challenges to national security that arise from climate change.  I will conclude with an assessment of future challenges and opportunities regarding climate change, from science, policy, and political perspectives.  In addition, this talk will address how to effectively talk about climate change through the use of analogies, plain, non-jargon English, and even a little humor.
