A Warming Arctic:
National Security Challenges and Opportunities

Wednesday, August 5, 2020

12:00 – 1:00 p.m.


This program is sold out but video will be available later this week.

Video of the program will be made available later in the week for those who are unable to attend.

Climate change is altering the physical landscape in the Arctic. The region is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet, much faster than many climate scientists predicted. A warmer Arctic may pose national security challenges, but it may also create opportunities for investment and development in Alaska.

Please join Brigadier General Stephen Cheney, USMC (Ret) for a discussion of the security challenges and opportunities posed by the warming Arctic.”
