Former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO Admiral James Stavridis spent 35 years sailing the seven seas and talks about his love of the ocean and the strategic importance of America's naval power. He takes us on an ocean by ocean tour, discussing his experiences and his concerns about geopolitical events in every region of the world, from China’s manmade islands in the South China Sea to Russia’s ambitious territorial grab in the Arctic Circle. He urges President Trump to sign the Law of the Sea Treaty and warns him not to abandon our NATO allies, and he describes how he’s seen the results of global warming with his own eyes in the Arctic.
