On Thursday, February 12th, the American Security Project, a nonpartisan think-tank, will publish a report on effective measures to tackle climate change. It will highlight the ineffectiveness of divestment as a way to fight climate change and call for a campaign that instead focuses on effective measures to reduce emissions. The report will explore effective solutions that would actually reverse the effects of accelerating changes in our climate.
Climate change is real and it is a direct challenge to our national security. As citizens, we owe it to our family, community, and country to educate ourselves on the facts about climate change and how human activity is the primary cause.
The report will call for our country to focus on effectiveness as the measure of success. We need to durably reduce emissions now, and we cannot waste our effort on campaigns like divestment that will not reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere by a single molecule.
Join the American Security Project at the National Press Club as our speakers discuss the release of this paper.
