Gwynne Dyer: Climate Wars

April 24

View the Event Website»

See Gwynne Dyer: Climate Wars at the Stockey Centre on April 24. A fascinating and controversial presentation from one of the world’s great geopolitical analysts, a terrifying glimpse of the none-too-distant future, when climate change will force the world’s powers into a desperate struggle for advantage and even survival.

GWYNNE DYER’s book “Climate Wars”, based on his CBC “Ideas” series of the same name, deals with the frightening geopolitical implications of large-scale climate change, and has just been published in Canada by Random House.

He has worked as a freelance journalist, columnist, broadcaster and lecturer on international affairs for more than 20 years, but he was originally trained as an historian. Born in Newfoundland, he received degrees from Canadian, American and British universities, finishing with a Ph.D. in Military and Middle Eastern History from the University of London. He served in three navies and held academic appointments at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and Oxford University before launching his twice-weekly column on international affairs, which is published by over 175 papers in some 45 countries
