On Friday September 20, Bloomberg TV interviewed the Center for Climate and Security’s Senior Strategist, Sherri Goodman, to discuss the role of climate change as a “threat multiplier” for instability – an apt term coined by the CNA’s Military Advisory Board back in 2007 under Sherri Goodman’s leadership. During the interview, Sherri was asked what her number one recommendation would be if she were still in her prior role as Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Environmental Security, and channeling the Center for Climate and Security’s Responsibility to Prepare framework, she stated:
My number one recommendation would be to incorporate this [climate change] into every aspect of defense planning, policy and programming, so that we are clear-eyed about what risks we face – the unprecedented risks – but also the unprecedented opportunities to seize the technology advantages, to move to lower carbon energy futures, and at the same time to take advantage of predictive analytics that will help us better understand these risks where they are occurring, and to be able to address them on a closer real-time basis.
