In July 2008, the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), with a consortium of ten partner organizations, hosted “Clout and Climate Change,” an international climate change “war game” to explore the national security implications of global climate change. CNAS and the consortium partners generated these documents – remarks and briefing slides by the “Secretary General” and his team, as well as a final agreement reflecting the results of the four teams – to set the scene and reflect ongoing events of the game. These documents contributed to shaping the game and were used to disseminate information to players during game play.
