Event Description:

Since the dawn of agriculture, but rapidly accelerating in the industrial age, humanity has conducted an uncontrolled experiment in bending the natural environment to fit human needs and desires. As the physical effects of climate change mount, what impacts will they have on human mobility, food security, and potential threats to peace? This talk will briefly introduce some of the impacts of climate change on livelihoods and both human and national security before discussing the critical role global markets and movements of people will play – not just as catalysts for conflict but as potential release valves for mounting ecological and demographic pressure.

   Cullen Hendrix is a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics and nonresident senior research fellow at the Center for Climate & Security, both in Washington, DC, and a professor at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver. His work on the economic and security implications of climate change has appeared in journals across the fields of ecology, economics, geography, marine science, and political science. He was a contributing author of the IPCC WGII 6th Assessment Report, for which he analyzed climate-related threats to peace, and has consulted widely on related issues for the US government, international organizations, and the private sector.
