Climate-change theory poses more than just risks to our environment

Cleo Paskal, Consultant, U.S. Department of Energy
Associate Fellow, Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House, London

The changing climate now has the attention of military establishments around the world. Last year, for example, the CIA created a group focused on tracking the national-security implications of desertification, rising sea levels, population shifts and heightened competition for natural resources. What will the opening of the Arctic mean for Russian access into North American waters? Will China's lack of clean, fresh water undermine its global ambitions? Will India's increasingly erratic monsoon affect its economic growth? These and other pressing questions will be answered.

Location: SF Club Office
Time: 11:30 a.m. check-in, noon program
Cost: $12 members, $20 non-members, students free (with valid ID)
