Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

Leaders at the Army Corps of Engineers say the effects of climate change mean its vast network of civil works projects is going to have to contend with weather events that are more severe and most importantly less predictable. As Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu reports, the Corps is changing its planning process to account for that uncertainty, and it's about much more than building higher and stronger dams and levees.

Rear Adm. Dave Titley (Ret.)

A group of retired military officers is urging the Pentagon to beef up plans for dealing with the impact of climate change. The advice comes in the form of a 68-page report published yesterday by the CNA Corporation. It says the risk has accelerated and that climate change is a catalyst for conflict. Rear Adm. Dave Titley (Ret.) is a member of the CNA Corporation Military Advisory Board and a former Navy Oceanographer and Navigator. He told Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive what CNA is recommending to current military leaders.

Bill Hohenstein, Director, Climate Change Program Office, USDA

Wildfires, floods and invasive pests are just some of the natural risks that farmers and other rural landowners are facing at an increased rate. Now, the Agriculture Department has a plan to help combat those risks. Last month, it launched the first Regional Hubs for Risk Adaptation and Mitigation to Climate Change. The seven hubs will provide information to farmers. Bill Hohenstein, director of USDA's Climate Change Program Office, spoke with Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp about the goals of the program.
