A rare bipartisan vote in the House affirmed what we already knew: Climate change is a threat to our safety and the stability of our world.
With the vote, the National Defense Authorization Act—a key law that governs the Pentagon—now includes language that states,
“climate change is a direct threat to the national security of the United States and is impacting stability in areas of the world.”
voted against this provision and it's time we voice our disappiontment. Tell your representative you demand we recognize climate change for the dangerous threat that it is and the need for our military to be prepared.
Thank you for your vote recognizing climate change as a national security threat
Dear [Decision Maker],
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
