US Military: Largest Consumer of Oil & Emitter of CO2
Our Climate Crisis and US Militarism
US militarism is the elephant in the room when it comes to the global climate crisis. Members of Veterans For Peace (VFP) have formed the Climate Crisis and Militarism Project (CCMP) to address the
connections between US militarism and the climate crisis. We seek to motivate others to help us stop US militarism and reverse its environmental impact. .

CARBON FOOTPRINT: The US military has the largest carbon and greenhouse gas footprint of any organization in the world, larger than that of each of 140 countries.
Due to US government pressure, the 1997 Kyoto Protocol stipulated that military emissions (for any country) would not be included in calculating national emissions. This means the carbon footprint of US overseas bases is similarly not counted.
