Extreme Realities
The threats to national security posed by climate change and extreme weather are investigated, including how competing claims to the Arctic, which is home to previously inaccessible oil and gas reserves, could lead to armed conflict. Also: changing weather patterns that caused turbo-charged monsoons in Pakistan; and drought, heat waves and wildfires in Russia. The documentary includes remarks from Thomas Friedman (New York Times), Jim Yong Kim (World Bank) and former CIA director James Woolsey.moreless
