ICFRC: Climate Security as National Security - Climate Change and the Hawkeye State

Climate change is at the forefront of both foreign and domestic policy.

From an increase in severe weather events to food security and migration -- the complexities of climate have far-reaching implications for both Iowans and the nation.

Panelists:
Mike Franken, retired Vice Admiral, U.S. Navy
Rob Hogg, former Iowa State Senator, District 33
Sara McLaughlin Mitchell, Professor & Collegiate Fellow, University of Iowa
