Podcast: “The link between climate change and energy security” by Rear Admiral Neil Morisetti, UK Climate and Energy Security Envoy

Listen to the podcast

Rear Admiral Neil Morisetti, UK Climate and Energy Security Envoy, talks to Canada-Europe Transatlantic Dialogue’s (CETD) Helen Morris about the link between climate change and energy security. He discusses how the consequences of climate change cut across traditional policy and geographical boundaries. While climate change is not expected to cause conflict directly RAdm Morisetti argues it may well act as a stress or threat multiplier in areas that are already suffering from food and water shortages.  He outlines the challenges ahead and some of the possible options to reduce our impact on the environment and so mitigate the effect of climate change on our security.

The interview was conducted on September 20, 2010 at the British High Commission in Ottawa where RAdm Morisetti was speaking at a discussion on the links between climate and energy security held in cooperation with the EU Centre of Excellence and the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at Carleton University. The Climate Change Programme at the British High Commission in Ottawa is a partner organization of CETD.
