Broadening horizons : climate change and the U.S. Armed Forces by Herbert E Carmen( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Climate change holds important consequences for national security and the way the Department of Defense (DOD) does business. Analysts expect changes such as more frequent heat waves, desertification, flooding and extreme weather events. These effects will intertwine with existing political, social, cultural and economic trends, with significant implications for U.S. interests worldwide. Addressing these issues, which are directly linked to the nation's energy challenges, will require the Department of Defense, U.S. armed services and combatant commands to explore how they might plan and adapt, help partner nations around the world adapt, and mitigate climate-changing greenhouse gas emissions. In some cases, such as with improving energy efficiency, solutions will be simple. In others, addressing these issues will require tough trade-offs. In this report, the authors identify many of the key policy questions and trade-offs, and assist in mapping a road ahead that meets U.S. national security needs
Sustaining security : how natural resources influence national security by Christine Parthemore( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 21st century, the security of nations will depend increasingly on the security of natural resources, or "natural security." The global economy, developing countries and local economies throughout the world all rely on the availability of potable water, arable land, fish stocks, biodiversity, energy, minerals and other renewable and nonrenewable resources to meet the rising expectations of a growing world population. Yet the availability of these resources is by no means assured. It is time for the national security community to recognize the growing importance of resource degradation to national interests. The stakes are clear: in many countries and regions with high significance for U.S. security and foreign policy interests, environmental degradation could directly undermine economic and political goals; conversely, preventing or remediating that degradation could serve as a valuable way of bolstering security. Ultimately, expanding the definition of national security to include the threats addressed here is not a matter of choice. This change is inevitable. But nations can choose either to react to such change as it happens or to shape the way such change unfolds and to prepare the best possible response
Promoting the dialogue : climate change and U.S. ground forces by Christine Parthemore( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Congress required in the 2008 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that the Department of Defense consider the effects of climate change on all of its "facilities, capabilities and missions," and, perhaps most notably, it called for the Department to incorporate such concerns into the next Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR). When the QDR is sent to Congress on February 1st, it will offer an unusual opportunity to shift how the national security community views climate change. In June 2009, the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) launched its "Promoting the Dialogue" project to study how the Department of Defense was incorporating climate change and its effects on U.S. security into the QDR process. In this working paper, Christine Parthemore and Will Rogers provide observations about how the QDR process addressed the 2008 NDAA requirement and some potential outcomes of that process
On the front lines : climate change and the combatant commands by Herbert E Carmen( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the U.S. military responds to the national security implications of climate change, the regional combatant commands will make the operational and tactical level decisions about how to adapt. In every region of the world, the changing climate will influence political, social, economic, environmental and cultural trends in ways that could destabilize societies or exacerbate conflicts. These developments will present new challenges to combatant commanders and U.S. military and civilian officials operating in their respective areas of responsibility (AOR). In this working paper, the authors focus on the six geographic combatant commands as a way to address the effects of climate change and related energy security challenges on U.S. national security interests in regions across the globe
Lost in translation : closing the gap between climate science and national security policy by W Rogers( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

National security policymakers point to climate change as a key trend that will shape the current and future global security environment, but do not always have the scientific information they need to plan and prepare for the security challenges it may cause. This report explores the gap between the science and policy communities and offers recommendations for how they can work together to ensure the United States can effectively plan for the national security implications of climate change
