In the past year, the significant security risks of a continued dependence on fossil fuels have been exemplified by two developments: first was the attempt by Vladimir Putin to hold Europe hostage to its reliance on Russian oil and gas in the wake of his brutal invasion of Ukraine. Second, was the unprecedented pace and intensity of military deployments in response to climate hazards across the globe – from wildfires in Europe and the United States, to flooding in Pakistan and Nigeria, to drought in China and Mexico.
It has never been more clear that the world must speed its transition to clean energy to secure its future.
The “National Security Voices for Clean Energy” video campaign features senior former US military, intelligence and national security leaders sharing their perspectives on why moving away from fossil fuels is a national security and geopolitical imperative for the United States. These videos spotlight candid messages that span topics from cutting emissions to strengthening America’s energy resilience. These videos were widely across social media and Youtube to educated policymakers and the public on the effects of climate change.
