Rep. Jason Crow, a Democrat from Colorado, asserted on Wednesday that climate change represents the biggest threat to global and national security.

Crow, a former combat veteran sitting on the House Armed Services Committee, spoke on the National Defense Authorization Act during a news conference with the leadership of the House Democratic Caucus on Wednesday.

He recalled how Washington, D.C.-made rules affected him when he initially joined the American Army. The Democratic Party, according to Crow, is the party of national security, and when it comes to significant dangers, climate change tops the list.

“We have a couple of pretty critical objectives when we adopt the National Defense Authorization Act this week. One is that we must uphold our commitment to our service members, those people who step up, raise their right hands, and swear to uphold the Constitution with their lives. “We must remain loyal to their families. We must deal with the threats posed by our enemies, which are substantial and very serious. In addition to addressing climate change and the biggest risks we face, we must send a strong message to our allies across the world that America is there and will stand with them in their hour of need. This measure achieves that.

He continued, “That’s what the House Democratic Caucus has done.” “And I’m extremely proud to be a part of that endeavor and to stand with my colleagues in saying we will safeguard this nation, we will carry out our responsibilities, and we will do so in a right and responsible manner,” he continued.
