How Climate Change Intersects with Global Security Interview with Dr Chad Briggs 16 August 2021

In this episode of “Shaping The Future”, Nick Breeze speaks with Global Security expert, Dr Chad Briggs at the University of Alaska Anchorage. Chad advises many global organisations on the intersection between climate change and national and regional security issues. His clients include the US State Department, US Air Force, the Swedish Armed Forces, the European Union, as well as US Dept of Energy, among others. Chad explains the linkages between climate change and hybrid warfare situations that are going on now and will continue to pose a massive threat to societies around the world. These include government level sources of disinformation, such as the Global Warming Policy Foundation in the UK or the Heartland Institute in the US, who are funded by fossil fuel interest groups to sow doubt and chaos that drive us further down the road of climate catastrophe.

Adaptation Critical To Our Global Climate Preparedness Strategy Interview with Alice Hill 24 August 2021

In this episode of “Shaping The Future”, Nick Breeze speaks with Alice Hill who was Special Assistant to President Obama at the White House and Senior Director for Resilience Policy at the National Security Council, working on climate change and pandemic preparedness. In her new book, ‘The Fight For Climate After COVID-19’, to be published on the 5th September, Alice makes the case for why it is imperative that we begin the necessary planning for adaptation for concurrent and consecutive climate extremes that threaten society the world over. With COP26 on the horizon, we are seeing decades of climate policy on mitigation come to virtually nothing as emissions still rise. The case being made here is that it is essential we make adaptation and building resilience a central feature of our approach to this decade and beyond. Nick Breeze wrote on the “Shaping the Future”, “ I want to thank the Global Military Advisory Council on Climate Change (GMACCC) for their help in organising this series of interviews with security experts.”
