The World Climate and Security Report (2021): Product of the Expert Group of the International Military Council on Climate and Security

The World Climate and Security Report (2021): Product of the Expert Group of the International Military Council on Climate and Security. Authors: Steve Brock (CCS), Oliver-Leighton Barrett (CCS), Laura Birkman (HCSS), Elisabeth Dick (HCSS), Leah Emanual (CCS), Sherri Goodman (CCS), Kate Guy (CCS), Sofia Kabbej (IRIS), Tom Middendorp (Clingendael), Michel Rademaker (HCSS), Femke Remmits (HCSS), Julia Tasse (IRIS). Edited by Erin Sikorsky.

"The report reveals that the increasing pace and intensity of climate hazards will strain military and security services around the world as they are called on to respond to climate-driven crises, while also facing direct climate threats to their own infrastructure and readiness. The authors also call on security institutions around the globe to act as “leading voices urging significantly reduced greenhouse gas emissions, given recent warnings about the catastrophic security implications of climate change under plausible climate scenarios.”"

Felgenhauer, Tyler; et al. (2021): Solar geoengineering research on the U.S. policy agenda: when might its time come?

Felgenhauer, Tyler; Horton, Joshua; Keith, David (2021): Solar geoengineering research on the U.S. policy agenda: when might its time come? In Environmental Politics, pp. 1–21. DOI: 10.1080/09644016.2021.1933763.

"We apply the Multiple Streams Approach analytical framework to explain why a U.S. federal SG research program has failed to materialize up to now, and to consider how one might emerge in the future. We argue that establishing a federal program will require the formation of an advocacy coalition within the political arena that is prepared to support such a policy objective."

The Hill: Carbon removal can and must be part of the climate justice agenda

"The White House Environmental Justice Advisory Council released a set of recommendations earlier this month on how the federal government can best advance environmental justice. While the proposals are aimed at supporting communities on the frontlines of climate change while tackling the climate crisis, they exclude an essential climate opportunity –– carbon removal."
