Abstract

We sit at a double crossroads in human history: Mounting evidence suggests we are at or near tipping points in carbon energy supply and ecological climate change. These are related borderless issues with existential threat potential. As a way to improve decision-making, an ecosystem approach to inform government policy presents great promise, fostering information sharing among participants and encouraging transparency regarding global energy and environmental (E&E) concerns. Such an effort complements traditional national security organizational frameworks with an approach that cultivates international connections, brings together groups of experts across disciplines, and encourages a richness of diverse views.
