MetadataShow full item record
In this NPS-CHDS Viewpoints, CHDS alumni Dr. Michael Larranaga and Dr. John Comiskey discuss the results of their examination of the potential threats that climate change could have on the nation’s homeland security and provide solutions to combat these growing threats. During their investigation, they concluded the data from the U.N and the U.S. National Climate Assessment is accurate, and that the effects of climate change could significantly hinder our ability to combat terrorism, respond to natural disasters, secure the borders, detect cyber threats, and build resilient communities. They also offer their recommendations for what the homeland security enterprise, as well as individuals, can do to prepare for and mitigate the risks associated with climate change.
