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.”
Your representative was instrumental in protecting this provision and thanks are in order: Thank your representative for standing up and recognizing the importance of climate change 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]
