The Green Zone: The Environmental Costs of the Military

Review by Kim Scipes of Green Zone: The Environmental Costs of Militarism

The [US] military—that voracious vampire—produces enough greenhouse gases, by itself, to place the entire globe, with all its inhabitants large and small, in the most immanent danger of extinction” (p, 22).  To put it plain language, that social institution that is said to protect Americans is, in fact, hastening our very extermination along with all the other people of the planet.
