Climate Change & National Security

Oct 16, 2014, 2:00pm - 4:00pm

The Byrd Polar Research Center is sponsoring Climate Change & National Security. Individuals can register to attend in person or via the web.

Climate change will have an impact on operations of the United States Armed Forces and the international events, both humanitarian relief efforts and arms conflicts, to which they respond. Rear Admiral Jonathan White will discuss the impacts of climate change on the U.S. Navy’s operations as well as actions being taken to prepare for these changes.

Additional speakers and a panel discussion will allow continued dialogue on climate change, national security and humanitarian relief with perspectives from other branches of the military and research communities.
