Environmental Security ↔ National Security
@ Strategic Demands: “New Definitions of National Security”

Biden Administration: Opportunity for a Profound Shift in U.S. Security Policy
Now comes a moment to envision a comprehensive redefinition of U.S. national (and global) security.
GreenPolicy360 and Strategic Demands see a window of opportunity for reshaping the national security debate — offering up a new comprehensive, and multi-lateral, nuclear arms control regime that draws down proliferation in the face of a resurgence of nuclear weapon systems spending and ‘modernization’.
GreenPolicy360 and Strategic Demands call for clarity of security, overarching security that builds an architecture that acknowledges and acts upon global threats that impact all nations — nuclear war, climate, environmental breakdown.

PUTTING THE CLIMATE CRISIS AT THE CENTER OF UNITED STATES FOREIGN POLICY AND NATIONAL SECURITY
”Section 101. Policy. United States international engagement to address climate change — which has become a climate crisis — is more necessary and urgent than ever.
