Copenhagen, National Security and the Road Ahead
(Call in numbers below)
After months of discussion about the national security ramifications of climate change and energy insecurity, the moment of decision has arrived with the United Nations’ Framework on Climate Change (UNFCCC) conference in Copenhagen December 7 – 18 – or has it? With the conference’s prospects uncertain, President Obama has announced that he will time his visit with those of Indian and Chinese leaders – and committed to cut US emissions by 17 percent over the next decade. Will that give talks the impetus they need? What outcomes can we expect? And what will follow up look like? Please join the National Security Network as a panel of experts –Sherri Goodman of the Center for Naval Analysis, Michael Levi of the Council on Foreign Relations, and Andrew Light of the Center for American Progress – discuss the pending negotiations, their national security implications, and the road ahead for Congress and the Administration .
