Natural Security

In conversation with: Emily Ma, Stanford University

Andy Karsner, senior strategist and “Space Cowboy” at X, argues that in our globalized world, environmental threats to natural security have become more consequential in frequency and severity than military threats to national security. He proposes that humankind can adapt and protect itself intelligently by “designing systems at a commensurate global scale of interdependence” to ensure the safety of our food and water supplies.
