- In a report released by the National Security, Military and Intelligence Panel of the Center of Climate and Security, a nonpartisan security policy institute, national security and intelligence experts warn that climate change could become a “catastrophic” threat to security and recommended quick action to be taken to mitigate risks
- The report calls for quickly reducing and phasing out global greenhouse gas emissions
- Threats could come about rapidly, destabilizing the regions and relationships on which U.S. and international security depend
- The most fragile parts of the world are most at risk, but all regions face serious implications
In our Rapid Decarbonization campaign, The Climate Center advocates for a formal California State commitment by 2022 to 80% below 1990 levels of greenhouse gas emissions and net negative emissions by 2030 for a climate-safe future.
