Climate change is a tremendously important issue, and it’s important for all parts of the federal government to keep it in mind as develop national security doctrine, policies, and plans. By establishing an interagency working group on this topic, this bill ensures that federal government agencies will coordinate their efforts.
President Trump’s decision to rescind President Obama’s memorandum on climate change was a reasonable one. It’s not necessary to specifically direct federal agencies to take climate change into consideration as they develop national security doctrine, policies, and plans, because taking the global context — including the climate — into consideration in these decisions is already a given.
