Michael Klare at the Reston Regional Library

Michael Klare joins us at the Reston Regional Library to introduce his latest book, All Hell Breaking Loose, an eye-opening examination of climate change from the perspective of the U.S. Military. Drawing on previously obscure reports and government documents, renowned security expert Michael Klare shows that the U.S. military sees the climate threat as imperiling the country on several fronts at once. Droughts and food shortages are stoking conflicts in ethnically divided nations, with “climate refugees” producing worldwide havoc. Pandemics and other humanitarian disasters will increasingly require extensive military involvement. The melting Arctic is creating new seaways to defend. And rising seas threaten American cities and military bases themselves.
