Ten years ago, in the very first issue of Carbon and Climate Law Review (CCLR), I discussed the question of whether climate change was becoming a security issue and whether it belonged within the scope of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). The first issue of CCLR was published on the backdrop of the first ever debate before the UNSC on the impacts of climate change on international security, which took place on 17 April 2007, and just a few years after the release in 2004 of the High - Level Panel on Threats, Challenges and Change report that included environmental degradation as a possible threat to international security.
