I understand where you're coming from. So I'll question it.

Science helps us determine that something will cause issues for everybody in the country down the road. The country is tasked with protecting the people within it. Science has determined a threat, so the government is tasked with helping eliminate, reduce, or avoid it.

Okay, done.
