The Marine Corps University (MCU) Journal just released an interesting new addition to the climate and security discussion with its “2016 Special Issue: Climate Change & Policy,” which is happily not behind a paywall. The special issue is the latest in a long line of reports on climate change from the U.S. defense community.

For a good write-up on the special issue, and a close look at the introductory article by Edward J. Erickson, see Schuyler Null’s blog post over at the New Security Beat.
