Climate Impact on National Security: Why Does Climate Matter for the Security of the Nation and Its Citizens? [open pdf - 2MB]
"CINS [Climate Impact on National Security] conferences focused on (i) critically evaluating specific cases where changing climate conditions currently, or are reasonably anticipated to, impact U.S. national security interests and (ii) prioritizing actionable next steps to strengthen U.S. military capabilities to fulfill its national security missions in deteriorating climate/weather environments. The often-contentious debates throughout society concerning the significance of climate issues in policy decisions take on specific and urgent tones when viewed through the lens of U.S. national security and U.S. military actions."
