National Research Council’s Climate and Security Report Release Delayed by Sandy

As indicated in a press release from the National Academies, the release of a long-awaited study by the National Research Council titled “Climate and Social Stress: Implications for Security Analysis,” has been temporarily postponed due to Hurricane Sandy. The Huffington Post reported on the rationale:

John D. Steinbruner, a professor of public policy at the University of Maryland and the chair of the 14-member panel of experts who conducted the analysis, said in an email message that CIA sponsors must be briefed on the report before it is publicly released.

That briefing was to occur on Tuesday, Steinbruner said, but the federal government was closed due to Sandy, a storm that many scientists suggest may have been energized in part by warmer ocean temperatures and other byproducts of global warming.

According to Steinbruner, the CIA briefing will likely be rescheduled for this week.
