CCS Statement: Decision to Withdraw from Paris Agreement Damages National Security

C&S LOGOThe Center for Climate and Security (CCS), a security think tank with an Advisory Board of senior military and national security experts, believes┬áthat the President’s┬ástated decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement will have serious, negative strategic implications for the United States. Backlash to the decision will damage U.S. national security in a number of ways, and will afford the U.S. no security benefits. It is clear that the President’s senior-most national security team understands this. Further, it remains to be seen what ‘re-entry’ after renegotiation means, as that is very unclear. It is therefore critical that the U.S. return to the international table in order to ensure that the U.S. both plays a leadership role in addressing the security implications of climate change, and maintains and broadens its strategic alliances and partnerships.
