Video: "It's Time for Natural Security"
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought home the truth that Americans need a new kind of security, as this video discusses. Technology is changing the way we fight, even as the strategic landscape is shifting under our feet. The United States has spent trillions on 20 years of war and billions on new weapons, and yet we were not ready for the microbes now undermining our way of life. New America's Resource Security team is looking at the root causes of conflict and the building blocks of peace in the 21st century, including energy, land, water, biodiversity, and climate change. It's time for a new kind of security.
