Climate Patriots

Two interesting, new terms to me, climate patriots and “environmental security”. These guys are right on and our best hope for bringing climate change awareness (and action) to Middle America.

Climate Patriots is a short video that provides a military perspective on energy, climate change and American national security.  The Pew Project on National Security, Energy and Climate conducted a series of interviews with former military leaders to discuss the challenges posed to the U.S. armed forces due to the impacts of climate change and our energy posture.  The video features:

  • Senator John Warner (R-VA), Former chairman U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee;
  • Vice Adm. Dennis McGinn, U.S. Navy (Ret.), CNA Military Advisory Board Member;
  • Former Captain James Morin, U.S. Army; and
  • Admiral John Nathman, U.S. Navy (Ret.), CNA Military Advisory Board Member.
