The Defense Department needs to better prepare for the potential impact of climate change, a new report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) warns.
The GAO report, released Monday, recommends that the Pentagon form a plan and set hard deadlines to assess which military bases are vulnerable to climate change.
If the Defense Department doesn’t establish a plan on some 7,591 locations worldwide, it “may not finish its assessments in a timely and complete manner,” putting the facilities in question at risk.
