Climate change is an issue that has serious impacts on global security – from South America to the Sahel. A major driver of climate change is the emissions of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) such as methane, black carbon, and hydrofluorocarbons. Together, these SLCPs account for one-third of current global warming. Reducing these pollutants can prevent more than 2 million premature deaths a year, avoid the annual loss of over 30 million tons of crops, increase energy security, and address climate change. Join Senator Christopher Murphy and Dr. Andrew Light in a session moderated by CNP President Scott Bates as they discuss the effects of climate disruptions and how to effectively confront the threat.
