Hill Briefing: Climate Change and the Risks to National Security


27 April 2017 | Washington, DC

American Security Project and the Center for Climate and Security


View Event Homepage


On April 27th, senior national security experts Vice Admiral Dennis McGinn, USN (Ret.), Brigadier General Stephen Cheney, USMC (Ret.), and Brigadier General David McGinnis, USA (Ret.) will discuss military planning for climate change and how Congress can support the Department of Defense in preparing for a changing climate.


Our military prepares for a range of threats to America’s national security: from state-to-state wars to terrorism, disaster response to stability operations. Climate change, by changing the environment in which the military operates, will affect all aspects of the military’s planning. As Secretary of Defense James Mattis recently affirmed, the military knows that preparation and risk management are appropriate measures to reducing threats.
