Salon duc Tape – No Warming, No War – September 24th, 2021
It’s time to address the climate impact of the military with implications for the upcoming climate summit
At the salon on Friday, September 24th, Sue Ellen Klein and Gary Butterfield will talk about the role of the U.S military and its enormous contribution to the climate crisis through its greenhouse gas emissions, which result in what U.N. Human Rights Commissioner Michelle Bachelet has called “the single greatest challenge to human rights in our era.” With the clock ticking, the upcoming climate summit, COP26, scheduled to meet in Glasgow, Scotland this November, offers the opportunity for concerted action by the nations of the world. Klein and Butterfield will address a campaign led by Code Pink, Veterans for Peace, and others that urges both the Biden administration and Sen. John Kerry, US envoy to COP26, to “stop excluding military pollution from climate agreements.” It is time to call out this elephant in the room.
Sue Ellen Klein is a biologist, convener of Partners for Peace, and a member of the foreign policy task force of Beyond our Borders which recently launched the Colorado Coalition for Women, Peace and Security. Gary Butterfield is a Vietnam-era veteran, past president of the San Diego Chapter of Veterans for Peace (VFP), and a member of VFP’s Climate Crisis and Militarism Project.
