From glacier melt in the Andes and hurricanes in New York and Hawaii, to hybrid disasters, cyber operations, and geoengineering, the US military and intelligence community harnesses the foresight provided by scenarios, simulations, and disaster planning to anticipate environmental and security-related disasters. In their new book, “Disaster Security: Using Intelligence and Military Planning for Energy and Environmental Risks,” Chad Briggs and Miriam Matejova lead readers through real-life planning scenarios and lessons learned to provide an inside view of how and why government agencies plan for environmental disasters and their potential cascading impacts on global systems.
Please join for a discussion with the authors and reflections by former Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Environmental Security, Sherri Goodman.
