A letter signed by the heads of 26 leading free market think tanks and activist organizations supporting an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act, by Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) to prevent the Department of Defense from continuing to implement Executive Orders 13653 and 13693 requiring the Department of Defense to create a number of climate change programs and policies throughout the Department.

The letter notes the climate programs and policies have nothing to do with the mission of the United States' Armed Services, and, instead are likely to undermine military readiness by diverting scarce resources from programs critical to ensuring the countries national security.
