Militaries are fuelling the climate crisis

The impact of war is so much more than just the emissions from tanks, ships and warplanes – modern warfare has a devastating effect on people and the planet.

So, what is the scale of planetary destruction wrought by militaries? And in a world where nations justify war on the basis of supposed ‘security’ benefits, isn’t the harm to the earth not also a huge threat to our collective security?

Ali Rae speaks with author and researcher at the Transnational Institute, Nick Buxton; author and associate professor of international relations at Georgetown University, Marwa Daoudy; and political scientist and co-director of Brown University’s Costs of War project, Neta Crawford.
