350 Pensacola will host a talk by Brigadier General John Adams, (U.S. Army, Retired) on April 12. He will discuss how the U.S. military is making plans for climate change at home and abroad.
When I worked in the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs at the University of West Florida, I reviewed grant opportunities from the various military branches for research related to climate change. Going back to 2010 when I began serving UWF as a Senior Grant Specialist, I became aware that our own military was well “down the road” in planning for climate change. In contrast, our city and state were hard-pressed to let the words climate change leave their lips.
This disconnect is critical to American citizens working in their own communities to help plan for climate change. Check out these sites below to see what our military is doing to prepare to mitigate climate change, and be sure to mark April 12 on your calendar. Go here for time, location, and more about General Adams’ lecture and discussion.
