Nick Buxton, co-editor of The Secure and the Dispossessed (Nov. 2015), will share his research and analysis on the preparations that the Pentagon and transnational corporations are making to militarize security responses to the unfolding climate crisis. Buxton is a communications consultant with the Transnational Institute, which has advocated for a just, democratic, and sustainable world for over 40 years, serving as a nexus between social movements, engaged scholars, and policy makers.

The book explores how the climate security agenda is playing out in the arenas of food, water, and energy. The implications for social and environmental justice are potentially very disturbing, as authoritarian solutions are increasingly recommended, such as guarding against climate change refugees rather than providing support, Nick will discuss alternatives undertaken elsewhere to cooperatively adapt and build a just response to the climate crisis.
