Climate Change, Energy, and National Security: PSA in Indiana


On April 6th and 7th, 2010, PSA Executive Director Matthew Rojansky and Vice Admiral Dennis McGinn of the CNA Military Advisory Board headed to Indiana to discuss the national security implications of climate change and America's energy dependence. PSA Advisory Board co-chair Lee Hamilton joined Rojansky and McGinn by phone to speak with the editorial board of the Indianapolis Star on the importance of addressing climate change. In addition to meeting with the editorial board of the Star, PSA hosted a dinner with community leaders while in Indianapolis.

PSA also traveled to Purdue Univerity, where Rojansky and McGinn attended a lunch with the Advisory Council of Military Family Research Institute and a dinner with the Purdue Energy Fund Advisory Board. McGinn also gave a lecture to students, faculty, and community members for Purdue's Pioneers in Energy lecture series. PSA and CNA also visited the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Crane, IN, where they toured the facilities and held a series of briefings.
