  5. 5. LIMITED ACCESS 000418 (U//FOUO) DISCUSSION PAPER FOR DEPUTIES COMMITTEE MEETING ON THE PRESIDENTIAL COMMITTEE ON CLIMATE SECURITY EXECUTIVE ORDER (U//FOUO) Purpose: To seek recommendations from Deputies regarding the draft Executive Order (E.O.) to establish the Presidential Committee on Climate Security (PCCS) (Tab C). (U) Background (U//FOUO) The United States Government has issued several reports on the dangers posed by climate change. The United States Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) 2017 Climate Science Special Report (Tab D) claims to authoritatively link climate change to the emission of greenhouse gasses. The USGCRP 2018 National Climate Assessment (Tab E) articulates grave implications for the United States. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence 2019 Worldwide Threat Assessment (Tab F) identifies climate change as a national security threat. However, these scientific and national security judgments have not undergone a rigorous independent and adversarial scientific peer review to examine the certainties and uncertainties of climate science, as well as implications for national security. (U) Discussion (U//FOUO) The objective of this E.O. is to establish, in accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act, a committee of distinguished experts to advise the President on the scientific understanding of today's climate, how the climate might change in the future under natural and human influences, and how a changing climate could affect the security of the United States. The PCCS will assess existing United States Government reports on climate for scientific accuracy and advise on the national security implications of climate change. The National Security Council will fund and oversee this committee, and the committee will operate in accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act. (U) Issue for Decision: Do Deputies endorse the attached draft E.O. at Tab C and recommend submission to the President?
