Global Tipping Points: Climate Change Risks and the U.S. Military

Originally posted by: wacnh.org

Join the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire and the League of Conservation Voters for the second installment in our virtual, star-studded Global Tipping Points speaker series this Fall! Our October edition will be headlined by the 75th U.S. Secretary of the Navy, the Honorable Ray Mabus, who will speak on the threat that climate change and extreme weather poses to our country’s military bases around the world and their ability to act effectively. After his remarks, Secretary Mabus will be joined by Norfolk, Virginia City Councilor Andria McClellan, and renowned journalist, author, and commentator on energy and climate issues, Jeff Goodell, for a panel discussion examining this existential threat to our nation’s military readiness and what solutions are being, and should be, undertaken to combat it.

This discussion will be moderated by Rob Werner of LCV and WACNH Board Member Maura Sullivan.

Following the opening remarks, a moderated Question and Answer session will be held. All questions can be emailed to council@wacnh.org, posted in either of the YouTube or Facebook Live chats, or the messenger app on our website, so tune in here at wacnh.org and we hope to see you there!
