Climate Change and Conflict

2008 - Volume 11 Number 1

Climate change and war are intimately related. Future generations will ask us: “What did you do to diminish climate change by trying to stop the invasion of Iraq? What did you do to prevent the terrible effects of climate change such as rising sea levels, desertification, drought, cyclones and the collapse of vulnerable societies?” No longer can these be called ‘acts of God’. They must be called by their true name: ‘acts of people’. Working for peace is integral to overcoming climate change – and peace movements and environmental groups need to work together.
