Climate change is an international security threat and one of the defining issues of our time. Climate change is already increasing the intensity and frequency of extreme weather events, exacerbating armed conflict and unprecedented global migration, and threatening the biodiversity on which humans depend.
JCPA will continue to advocate for policy that promotes energy independence and reflects our values of protecting Creation. By supporting policies that promote renewable energy and other clean energy innovations, we can reduce our nation’s dependence on foreign oil while protecting the environment and mitigating the impacts of climate change.
The JCPA strives to ensure that U.S. leaders take bold action to address international climate change, urging them to incorporate a strategy for fighting climate change and building resiliency into pandemic recovery measures, invest in low-income and minority communities that suffer disproportionately from climate change both in the U.S. and internationally, and take action to meet the U.S.’s obligations under the Paris Climate Agreement.
