Codepink Makes Important Point About War and the Environment

Posted by libhom Saturday, April 19, 2008

Dennis Kucinich made an important point during his campaign about the connection between the war in Iraq and an economy that depends on petroleum and other CO2 generating fuels. The connection between global warring and global warming is one that Amy Goodman picked up on for some time on Democracy Now!.

There is another side to the connection between the war on Iraq and climate change. Codepink made an important point in a recent email blast:

War is definitely not green. It is, in fact, quite the opposite. The U.S. military is the single largest consumer of oil in the world and the world's larger polluter, generating 750,000 tons of toxic waste annually. If we stop funding the war for oil in Iraq, our tax dollars can go toward developing clean, green sources of energy that will help us build a healthy, peaceful planet.

Weapons use a lot of energy. Shipping hundreds of thousands of people plus weapons and equipment generates a tremendous amount of CO2.
