Former CIA Chief on Climate Change as Security Issue

President Barack Obama told leaders at a United Nations Climate Summit that the U.S. is “determined to act” against global warming, is a serious partner in the fight, and “will meet our responsibility to future generations.”
At the G20 summit in Pittsburgh, leaders will discuss helping developing nations with the cost of curbing emissions of greenhouse gases.
But, former CIA Director Michael Hayden says officials are also talking about the national and international security implications of climate change. The retired 4 star Air Force General spoke with DUQ’s Kevin Gavin.

Listen to the interview.
