Join host/narrator Matt Damon to investigate the links among extreme weather, climate change and threats to our national security. Featuring Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Thomas Friedman, World Bank president Jim Yong Kim, former CIA director James Woolsey and environmental visionary Lester Brown, the documentary focuses on recent political conflicts and severe weather events in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Russia, India, the Middle East, the United States and the Arctic. The program explores how extreme weather is already affecting the geopolitical landscape and points to innovations that can help us adapt to the increased probability of heat waves, hurricanes, floods and droughts.
