The overarching question imparting urgency to this exploration is: Can U.S.-Russian contention in cyberspace cause the two nuclear superpowers to stumble into war? In considering this question we were constantly reminded of recent comments by a prominent U.S. arms control expert: At least as dangerous as the risk of an actual cyberattack, he observed, is cyber operations’ “blurring of the line between peace and war.” Or, as Nye wrote, “in the cyber realm, the difference between a weapon and a non-weapon may come down to a single line of code, or simply the intent of a computer program’s user.”
Increasing fuel economy standards and promoting bio-based fuels are at the center of the debate over climate policy in the transportation sector. But how would these policy tools work together? And how far can they take down the road of reducing greenhouse gas emissions? These and related questions will be explored in this presentation.
