The intelligence community (IC) is sounding the alarm that the effects of climate change will worsen risks in national security, but the IC must pivot resources and capabilities to respond effectively to those new threats, according to Rolf Mowatt-Larssen, senior fellow at the Belfer Center, former director of Intelligence and Counterintelligence at the Department of Energy (2005-2008) and former CIA intelligence officer.

  • Mowatt-Larssen said the IC should decide how it can give the president a decision advantage in intelligence and focus on improving climate policymaking.
  • He said the IC should establish an organization dedicated to national security threats worsened by climate change, such as water scarcity, energy competition, regional conflicts and infectious diseases.
  • Mowatt-Larssen stressed the importance of collaboration with allies and partners as well as transparency, stating that not all intelligence requires secrecy.
