Climate Change as Threat (and Opportunity) Multiplier

Meera Subramanian

Back to "Spring 2020" courses

The US Department of Defense has called climate change a ”threat multiplier,” referencing military bases inundated by sea level rise and increased global political instability from extreme weather events. But every aspect of life on earth, for humans and other living creatures, is changing because of a rapidly warming planet. This class will explore everything from the state of songbirds to the national security concerns of war hawks to agriculture to urban design to storytelling to social justice. The aim is to understand how climate change exacerbates existing struggles and how innovative climate solutions might help ease them.
