Warmongering and the Climate Crisis

The latest war in Europe forces us to address the issue of warmongering and the responses to it as it adds to our already perilous climate and extinction crises.
“In 2017, the US military bought about 269,230 barrels of oil a day and emitted more than 25,000 kilotonnes of carbon dioxide by burning those fuels. The US Air Force purchased US$4.9 billion worth of fuel, and the navy US$2.8 billion, followed by the army at US$947m and the Marines at US$36m.”

The US military with 800 off shore military bases and the independent states response to the threat it poses is grinding the living planet into dust.
The article below is a year old so the damage will be worse than stated. Add the emissions from the war in Ukraine to this already dire prognosis.
 “If the US military were a country, its fuel usage alone would make it the 47th largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world, sitting between Peru and Portugal.”
US military is a bigger polluter than as many as 140 countries – shrinking this war machine is a must

William Kallfelz mentioned that the US taxpayers via the military industrial complex, are giving $33 Billion in ‘Aid’ to Ukraine. Russia will clearly see this as a declaration of war by the USA.
Glenn Greenwald has gone into some detail on the effects of warmongering;

Abby Martin interviewed Professor Guy McPherson in 2013; Human Extinction by 2030 Guy wasn’t as aware of the Aerosol Masking Effect when this interview was recorded.

A more recent analysis by the great anti-imperialist Abby Martin on the US military is embedded below

I have previously written about the inevitably of a nuclear war and subsequent nuclear winter. Included in the blog piece below is an analysis from Carl Sagan on the effects of a nuclear winter;
The Inevitability of Nuclear War and Subsequent Nuclear Winter
Our rewilding project of planting native trees on Rakino Island can be followed here; Rakino Island Nursery.

I'm an anti-imperialist, environmental activist and blue ocean sailor, who is passionate about the earth and all it's inhabitants without favour. Brace for imminent impact as we bare witness to the non-linear unraveling of the biosphere and habitability disappearing for most if not all complex life on the only habitable planet we know of. To quote President Niinistö in North Russia: ‘If We Lose the Arctic, We Lose the World’. Folks we have lost the Arctic.

    Madness to the left of me, insanity to the right, and no knight in shining armor rushing to the rescue from any direction. Oh wait!

Kevin Hester is currently living on Rakino Island, a small island in the Hauraki Gulf near Auckland, New Zealand, monitoring the unravelling of the biosphere and volunteering at the Rakino Island Nursery is currently developing a proposal to create a marine reserve near by. The Island has no grid tied electricity or reticulated water.  I catch my own water from the roof and generate my electricity from the ample solar radiation on the island.
