Earth Not War

environment, sustainability,ecology, 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.
