A report from the Center for Naval Analyses examines the national security consequences of climate change over the next 30 to 40 years -- the time frame for developing new military capabilities. The specific questions addressed in this report are:
- What conditions are climate changes likely to produce around the world that would represent security risks to the United States?
- What are the ways in which these conditions may affect America's national security interests?
- What actions should the nation take to address the national security consequences of climate change?
