This fact sheet lays out some of the trends in climate events over the last ten to fifteen years, demonstrating rising threats to the United States.
Mitigating greenhouse gases is necessary to reduce the effects of climate change. However, the United States must also take adaptation measures in order to minimize the inevitable consequences of climate change.
ASP’s fact sheet, “International Progress on Fusion Energy” outlines the steps other countries are taking in developing fusion energy. Meanwhile, the U.S. is considering budget cuts to its fusion program, which will cause irreparable harm to the development of fusion power.
The American Security Project releases the preliminary results of a new resource on climate change and national security: The Global Security and Defense Index on Climate Change. The Index analyzes how governments around the world and their militaries plan for and anticipate the strategic threats of climate change.
Fusion energy holds great promise to meet America’s energy needs. Energy from fusion is clean, safe, secure and abundant. ASP’s new White Paper report provides a detailed plan on how to accelerate the development of fusion power.
ASP’s White Paper, “Fusion Power: A 10 Year Plan to Energy Security,” provides a compelling case to develop fusion power on an accelerated timescale and how we can get there. Here is an Executive Summary of the White Paper. It provides a concise summary of the critical steps needed to accelerate the development of fusion power.
Fusion energy holds the promise of providing a practically inexhaustible source of energy. But, what is fusion? ASP’s fact sheet, “What is Fusion Power?” provides clear answers on how fusion works, the main approaches to fusion, and the benefits of fully developing fusion power.
