if you care about climate & aren't sure how war is connected, here's a story I wrote on Palestine last year.

war is not only violent for the people living through it. it's violent for the planet. and its impacts can linger long after a war ends.
Over the past few days, we’ve discussed how the fossil fuel industry has fueled and propped up the Russian attacks in Ukraine. Today, we’re sharing some information about how war impacts the environment and climate. 
Here is an important story from Atmos’ Yessenia Funes discussing the ongoing crisis between Israel and Palestine, she unpacks the environmental impacts of war and how those, in turn, affect people. Many of these environmental costs of war can be directly related to the crisis in Ukraine. 
Brian Kahn broke down the possible impacts of war on Chernobyl’s soil. According to his reporting, fighting on the radioactive site could be disastrous for people and the planet. 
One of the greatest contributors to the climate crisis is the military-industrial complex. If the US military alone was its own nation-state, it would be the 47th largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world. This new war will only contribute further to the climate crisis, in addition to the pain and destruction of war itself.
