"Climate change affects the sons and the daughters who are currently stepping up to wear the uniform of our country." - Former Sen. John W. Warner
This month, one of America's most accomplished "naval persons" in recent memory will attend a well-deserved christening ceremony in his honor for a new submarine, SSN 785 John Warner. U.S. Senator John Warner is a true American hero, having served his country as a Navy enlisted sailor, a Marine lieutenant, Secretary of the Navy and United States Senator from the Commonwealth of Virginia. As there are few people in this country, let alone the rest of the world, with such a resume, I am particularly encouraged by Senator Warner's latest endeavor: fighting the threat climate change presents to our armed forces and our nation.
