Thank you, Lena! I really enjoyed this entry, which connects climate change to important and relevant geopolitical issues in the world today. I think that you are absolutely correct — climate change is connected to almost everything in our lives. It is not a niche concern, it is an existential one.

Thank you for the comment, Mr Thomas! I credit Ms Uttley’s Geography class for opening my eyes to these connections!

I think the issue of global security and how it’s related to climate change isn’t addressed often enough. I keep meaning to watch a documentary about this issue called, Age of Consequences. Perhaps it would be a great movie to show the night before our Summit for all of the people coming from far away? Check out the trailer here: http://theageofconsequences.com/
