House Votes to Ban Pentagon from Claiming ‘Climate Change’ as National Security Threat

John Holdren, czar of the White House Office of Science and Technology, recently asserted that “climate change is not a distant threat — It already is affecting every region of the country and key sectors of the economy.”

However, the House of Representatives approved an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which prohibits the Pentagon from using its funding to combat climate change.

The amendment, championed by House Representative David McKinley, reads: “None of the funds authorized to be appropriated or otherwise made available by this Act may be used to implement the U.S. Global Change Research Program National Climate Assessment, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Fifth Assessment Report, the United Nation’s Agenda 21 sustainable development plan, or the May 2013 Technical Update of the Social Cost of Carbon for Regulatory Impact Analysis Under Executive Order.”
