Proposal

Amend Chapter I, Democracy, Section E, Domestic Security by adding new sub-section 1 and adjusting the numbering of subsequent points accordingly
Proposed Changes
1. Immediately address environmental degradation in all forms. Environmental degradation poses extremely pressing concerns to both domestic and international security, amongst other things. An increasing frequency / intensity of extreme weather events as a whole are stressing global food, water, financial, security, energy, transportation, emigration/immigration, and other systems pitting the self-interests of normally peaceful nations against each other. See chapter III for more detail.
