The Crawford School of Public Policy presents a talk on How Climate Change Threatens our Society.
Climate change is exacerbating tensions in areas with existing global instability, increasing the risk and changing the nature of conflict.
It is far more than ‘just’ an environmental issue; it fundamentally changes our relationship with food and water, which is essential for our well-being and for the viability of nearly all other forms of life.
We have collectively built and optimized human civilisation for the relatively stable climate that has existed for thousands of years, starting at the end of the last ice age. That climate is now changing rapidly.
Admiral Professor Barrie’s talk will explore the threat that climate change poses to global security and implications for environmental and human security.
Date: Monday 29 August 2016
Venue: Canberry/Springbank Room, Level 1, JG Crawford Building 132, Lennox Crossing, ANU
Speaker: Admiral Professor Chris Barrie
