National Insecurity with Arnold Schwarzenegger


Action hero, politician, climate crusader and YEARS of LIVING DANGEROUSLY executive producer Arnold Schwarzenegger sets out to explore the military’s relationship with a changing climate. He learns how our armed forces are dealing with an increasing number of climate-related disasters and how the military is working to reduce its own carbon footprint. Schwarzenegger travels to Kuwait to visit soldiers and travel in a fuel convoy (where more than 3,000 soldiers have been killed or injured since 9/11). He learns how serious a threat the military perceives climate change to be, talks to top-level military leaders and meets the brave men and women who are dealing with climate change threats and disasters on the front lines.
