The Climate Needs Peace – the vicious cycle of war and climate change

21st September - 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

In this online meeting, two speakers, one from UK and one from USA, will explore the vicious cycle of war and climate change. War is a humanitarian catastrophe… but it is an environmental catastrophe too, and military spending squanders resources that need to be spent to combat climate change.
Hilary Evans, vice-chair of the Movement for the Abolition of War, and Linda Modica, co-chair of the Appalachian Peace Education Center in Abingdon, Virginia, USA, will explore the issues.
Did you know that military emissions are not even counted by the UN for COP26, the Glasgow climate conference that may be the world’s last chance to head off runaway climate chaos?
