Read our new brief on this issue

Join BPC for an online discussion with Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND) and former National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster on the benefits of a common approach between the U.S. and its allies on a climate and trade policy.

Integrating climate and trade in our broader security architecture could produce multiple national security benefits for the United States, including:

Moreover, international recognition of the relative carbon efficiency of the American economy would result in U.S. companies gaining greater market share at the expense of dirtier production from strategic competitors, including China and Russia.

Sen. Cramer and H.R. McMaster will discuss their thoughts on the policy, as outlined in their Foreign Policy op-ed published late last year. BPC Fellow George David Banks will also discuss his forthcoming issue brief: Understanding America’s Carbon Advantage and Identifying Strategic Goals for a Bipartisan Approach to U.S. Climate & Trade Policy.
