National Security Impacts of Climate Change With Angus King

April 5, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Please join us for two fantastic events on Thursday, April 5th at the University of Southern Maine, Portland Campus
Free and open to the public!

Climate change threatens America’s national security and our military, intelligence community, and nations around the world are taking it seriously. From sea-level rise threatening U.S. bases internationally, to climate change effects like extreme weather and food and water scarcity, climate change is a disruptive force that can lead to political instability and even war.

This evening event will bring together Maine’s U.S. Senator Angus King, who serves on both the Armed Services and Intelligence Committees, with military and foreign policy experts from the American Security Project, including Lieutenant General John Castellaw, USMC (Ret.). They will discuss how climate change will impact America’s national security and what measures Congress and the Defense Department will need to take to address these concerns.
