Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Online at The Hill, Mr. Lieu and Mr. Gallego, Members of Congress and Veterans of the U.S. Military, explain why climate change is a serious threat to America’s national security.

“As members of Congress and veterans of the U.S. military, we know human-caused climate change is real and poses a significant threat to America’s national security.”

“Climate change has the potential to dramatically increase instability across the developing world, unleashing a host of new threats. Our military will inevitably be called upon to meet these challenges."

“As we saw in Paris, when the United States leads, other nations join us in elevating their climate ambitions. We have an urgent responsibility to take the necessary steps today that will allow future generations to avoid climate chaos and the security threats it poses.”
