Join ACDIS and Sandia National Laboratories' joint seminar series on security. 

This Thursday April 7, 2022 at 6pm virtually on Zoom, Dr. Clifford Singer will present, "Climate Change and Security in Europe"

Abstract: A comparatively simple integrated assessment model is used to examine economic impacts of an EU commitment in 2021 to achieving zero net CO 2 emissions. An analysis of previous policy-makers statements on the reasons for EU to implement that policy even without commitments from other countries did not reveal substantial interest in possible security benefits of reduced fossil fuel imports. As of April of 2022, there have been substantial security-related changes in EU energy systems plans.

Biography: Clifford Singer is a Research Professor, an Emeritus Professor having held appointments in Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering and in Political Science, and a faculty member and former director of the Program in Arms Control & Domestic and International Security at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His research concentrates on development of the Climate Action Gaming Experiment simulations of international negotiation concerning climate change policies and on consequences of use of military force.
