Tropic of Chaos: Climate Change and the New Geography of Violence
From Africa to Latin America to Asia to North America, how is climate change fueling conflict? What impacts do rising sea levels, intensifying droughts, increasing floods, and melting glaciers have on access to water and arable land and how will these impacts shape future social dynamics and geopolitics?
The World Affairs Council presents Christian Parenti, author of Tropic of Chaos: Climate Change and the New Geography of Violence. As both a scholar and investigative journalist, Parenti will discuss the connection between climate change and increased social and political conflict. Join us as we discuss why climate change is fundamentally a political problem that requires political solutions in order to prevent climate-change driven violence and increased global disparity.
