Bob Abrahams’ letter was bang on, but it is obviously not just carbon emissions generated by war that are seriously detrimental to our planet. You can’t drop that many bombs without doing a lot of serious environmental damage.
While the world was meeting in Paris to come up with an agreement to limit our carbon output, many of the countries sitting at the table were concurrently bombing the hell out of Syria and Iraq. But that doesn’t count because it’s totally necessary.
Since the US established themselves as the alpha war dog by dropping A-bombs on Japan at the end of theSecond World War, they have almost continually settled their disputes by crapping on the neighbours with their high tech war machines. Now they have all their allies, and their main competitor busily crapping on this regional conflict for all they are worth. This dispute settlement method is far too destructive to be even considered in the 21st century.
It is time to bring the dogs home and chain them up in the yard for good. I am happy to see Canada leading the way.
