A U.S. Strategy for Sustainable Energy Security. Atlantic Council. David Koranyi. March 4, 2016.
In today’s interconnected world, global climate and energy security are critical to the United States’ national security and its current and future economic prosperity. National energy systems, including that of the U.S., have to adapt in a dynamic fashion to transformative changes in the world of energy. Failure or delay in the adaptation process will result in substantial economic disadvantage and national security vulnerabilities, and risk the overall position of the U.S.’s position as the leading global power in the twenty-first century. Climate change represents an ever growing direct risk to the American people as extreme weather events wreak havoc, rising sea levels engulf coastal cities, and natural beauties and wildlife habitats are being degraded.
