How Extreme Weather Events Can Impact U.S. National Security

The debate about climate change has partially been focused on its economic consequences. But what about national security?

That's the topic of a panel discussion on Thursday at Arizona State University. Retired U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Norman Seip will be there.

Seip talked about how can extreme weather events like hurricanes or fires compromise our national security.

Jorge Valencia was a senior field correspondent at KJZZ from 2016 to 2019.
