The New York Times today contains an article discussing the potential consideration of climate change by the UN Security Council. I’ve taught this topic in climate change law courses before, and the students have always been really engaged in the discussion as to whether climate change should be deemed a threat to international security, and whether the Security Council is an appropriate venue in which to address climate change. A good reading to assign in this context is: Penny, Greening the Security Council: Climate Change as a Emerging Threat to International Peace and Security, 7 International Environmental Agreements: Politics, Law & Economics (2007).
