Earth Not War

war, ecocide, environment, agent orange, environmental degradation, anti-war,

When we think about environmental destruction, we must think about war because modern warfare (most particularly coming from our own military) is the number one enemy of the earth. Ecocide – the destruction of the natural environment, especially when deliberate – is both a strategy (i.e., Agent orange) and a consequence of our military practices (i.e., oil use) of U.S. wars. So, we fool ourselves if we think we can address climate change and the environment without being anti-war. If you would like to check an article on this topic, read Karl Mathieson’s What is the Impact of Modern Warfare in the 11/06/2014 issue of The Guardian.
