Dr. Chris King is a retired Brigadier General who until recently served as Dean of the US Army Command and General Staff College at Ft. Leavenworth. He represents the US on an international military advisory council dealing with security and climate change. He is an authority on the impact that climate change, water scarcity, and other related environmental issues will have on National Security and International Stability.
His most recent work includes an analysis of the defense
implications of climate change published by Cambridge University, a
presentation in Vienna at the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, and a paper presented at diplomatic sessions leading up to the international Paris Climate Conference in 2015.
