Talk by Dr. David Titley, Rear Admiral USN (Ret). Talk at noon followed by lunch at 1 p.m.
Please join American Security Project’s Dr. David Titley, Rear Admiral USN (Ret.), for a discussion on the emerging threats of climate change to our national security, how the military is responding to this threat, and why it matters for Pennsylvania. The U.S. military recognizes the effects of climate disruption are an “accelerant of instability” that exacerbate security threats around the world. More frequent extreme weather events, food scarcity, water insecurity, and sea level rise have the potential to create new humanitarian disasters and destabilize entire countries. For the United States military, this means responding to increasing numbers of crises both at home and abroad. The combined effects of hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria last fall are examples of what’s to come. Please register to attend the talk and to let us know if you will join us for lunch.
