US military: the world's biggest polluter

The fight against ecological disaster must include fighting the war machine of the US state, argues Jago Corry

The US military machine knows no bounds regarding world degradation, however much - through its excessive consumption of raw materials and production of countless major oil and pipeline spills - it is now considered to be the world’s biggest industrial polluter.

The US Department of Defence is responsible for huge amounts of devastation to the environment; its use of pollutants such as perchlorate and jet fuels heavily contaminate 19 million acres of occupied land, disrupting local ecologies and toxifying local water sources.
