The Arctic Melt: Climate Change and Security Concerns in the Arctic
Over the past decade, the Arctic has experienced some of the most rapid climate changes on earth, almost twice the global average. As the Arctic melts, many stakeholders are talking about the potential to unlock the vast tracts of petroleum not to mention opening the Arctic seaway to international traffic. Climate change has exacerbated already existing economic, military and environmental challenges to governing the region. This talk will focus on security issues associated with a melting Arctic.
