How US Militarism Worsens the Climate Crisis
Wed May 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
Did you know that the US military is the world’s single largest institutional consumer of fossil fuels? And that it is also the single largest institutional emitter of greenhouse gases? The military’s contribution to the climate crisis is often overlooked in discussions about the current climate emergency. See how these two existential threats are related from the Veterans For Peace’s unique perspective.
Gary was drafted into the US Army during the Vietnam War and then declared as a Conscientious Objector and opposed the war while in the military. He is resolute in acting on his commitment to Peace. He is past President of the San Diego Chapter of Veterans For Peace and currently on the Steering Committee of the Climate Crisis & Militarism Project. He is also a member of San Diego 350.org and is keenly interested in the effects of militarism on the climate crisis. For more information: https://www.veteransforpeace.org/take-action/climatecrisis
