Perspective – Presidential Views of Climate Change as a National Security Concern

share this

Climate change is a national security concern as it threatens U.S. military infrastructure and readiness, fragile governments and stability, and the U.S.’ position as a global leader. Despite the risks, the U.S. has rarely recognized climate change as a threat in national security strategic assessments. This report will examine the National Security Strategies (NSS) of President George W. Bush, President Barack Obama, and President Donald Trump for recognition of climate change as a security threat. The NSS is important because it sets the national security priorities for each administration, offers insight into each administrations’ views on the most important threats facing the U.S., and provides strategic guidance for national security agencies, such as the Department of Defense (DoD).
