Climate Crisis & Militarism

Mission: To educate and mobilize about the cost of war and militarism as it relates to the Climate Crisis.

"U.S. Militarism, Space Tech, and Climate Crisis" workshop by CCMP and Space4Peace, COP26 Coalition, People's Summit for Climate Justice

Our areas of focus are:

  1. The carbon bootprint of the US military, larger than that of many countries. 
  2. The wars for oil and other resources – how they support the fossil fuel-based status quo.
  3. The unequal burden of both climate crisis and militarism on people of color, the poor, and future generations.
  4. The resources spent on militarism and war – redirect to respond to the existential threat of climate crisis.
