From the Document: "Both the Department of Defense's (DOD) global network of military installations and U.S. civilian infrastructure face climate change and extreme weather-related challenges. Climate change can also increase instability that affects U.S. security interests. GAO [Government Accountability Office] previously identified the significant fiscal risk that climate change poses for the U.S. government, with billions of dollars in estimated liabilities. However, climate change also poses national security risks."
