Clout and Climate Change War Game: Participant Briefing Book

By Christine Parthemore

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 provided this briefing book to participants in advance of the game, set in the year 2015, to prepare them for the event. Its contents, future scenarios based partially on open-source material and partially on climate modeling conducted by consortium partners, were intended to shape the game by providing a vision of the world in 2015 and key events that occur in the years leading up to that time.
