The Climate 21 Project released a blueprint today for hardening Department of Defense infrastructure and operations against climate threats and contributing to global emissions reductions, Climatewire reported.

The memo urges the Pentagon's top leaders to issue a first-of-its-kind "Climate Risk Secretarial Directive" aimed at putting climate change on par with top priorities like counterterrorism, nuclear deterrence and competition over military dominance.
