Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts Climate Change: Who Has It Worst?

Climate Change: Who Has It Worst?

  • February 1, 2022


In late January, President Biden signed an executive order placing the climate crisis at the center of U.S. foreign policy and national security. Climate change is an unavoidable problem for everyone, but not every country will suffer the same ecological, social, political and military effects as our planet warms.  Which places around the world will suffer the most traumatic consequences from extreme weather, rising seas and hotter temperatures? 

FPRI Distinguished Research Fellow Clint Watts talks with John Conger, senior advisor to the Council on Strategic Risk and Senior U.S. Advisor to the International Military Council on Climate and Security to help answer these questions and provide an overview of the global threat of climate change and its implications on national security.
