Mark Jacobson, assistant dean of Washington programs and former senior Defense Department official under the Obama administration, says that "the Kerry pick is really incredible from a structural standpoint." His selection, Jacobson says, is "an admission that our mid-20th century national security structures were not designed to deal with some of the more holistic and potentially existential threats, in this case, climate change." Jacobson was quoted in the Politico article, "Biden reveals national security team stacked with Obama veterans."

Jacobson was also quoted in the Washington Post article, "Biden’s national security rollout doesn’t include a Pentagon pick."
