Episode Summary

National Security and Climate Change
(Earth Focus Episode 36) US military and intelligence leaders are increasingly concerned about climate change. Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism graduate students look at how climate change threatens national security. Earth Focus features four of their reports: how the CIA is spying on changing climate; where US Earth satellites fall short in providing the climate data needed for assessing national security threats: why Bangladesh may be a humanitarian challenge for the US military; and how Arctic posturing is heating up -- the new geopolitics of a changing Arctic. Produced in collaboration Medill's National Security Journalism Initiative.moreless
