Extreme weather is a national security issue, and Miami is on the front lines
The American Security Project (ASP) was created to educate Americans about the changing nature of national security in the 21st century — including the growing threat that extreme weather events and a changing climate pose to our national security. We are a forward-thinking organization whose members have a depth of experience in military and national security matters, business, policy-making, science and other fields. We are unified in our belief that Americans must recalibrate how they think about national security. It is time to look beyond traditional security concerns like conventional weapons and armies, and consider issues such as the changing climate as real threats to America’s security and prosperity — from devastated food crops, to shortages of potable water, to destructive extreme weather events.
