As a former Army officer, I have seen firsthand how climate change – caused by our dependence on dirty fossil fuels – places our national security and our men and women in uniform around the world at risk.
And I’m not alone: A consensus of military leaders agree that climate change is making the world a more dangerous place, accelerating instability and serving as a catalyst for conflict.
Unfortunately, too many of our elected officials across the country refuse to take action.
It’s time to take a stand: Pledge that you won’t let our country’s lawmakers ignore the threat of climate change.
We need leaders who will take a bold stand – and support our military as it confronts this challenge.
Sign the pledge if you believe that climate change is a serious threat that deserves to be at the forefront of the national conversation.
It’s time we #WinOnClimate.
Fmr. Army Officer
