Climate Disruption and the U.S. Military

October 20, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Climate is the biggest challenge humanity has ever faced. Our house is on fire and the military is key to the ignition.

About this Event

The military is sacrosanct in this country. We’re taught to honor the military, even though it has played, and continues to play, an outsized role in our extinction. The military protects Big Oil and other extractive industries. It is the single largest institutional consumer of fossil fuels in the world. Military operations leave a toxic legacy on their bases and across the world. Wars ravage fragile ecosystems and kill plants, animals, people and the earth. Join us as we examine the nexus between “Climate Disruption and U.S. Militarism”.

We thank the Third Unitarian Church and Laurel Lambert Schmidt for making this event possible! 3rd Unitarian church is located one block north and two blocks east of the Austin Avenue green line stop.
