Climate Reparations: The Hidden Billions Militaries Owe for Environmental Damage

Hold your breath as we unveil a groundbreaking study.

The US and UK militaries might owe a staggering $111bn in climate reparations.

How did military actions contribute to this environmental debt?

Since the 2015 Paris Agreement, the US and UK militaries have unleashed over 430m metric tonnes of CO2.

That's more than the entire greenhouse gas emissions of the UK in a year.

What's the environmental fallout?

The eye-popping figures suggest the US military should pay $106bn, and the UK military, $5bn.

But hold on, these numbers are just the tip of the iceberg. What makes these calculations so conservative?

Behind the scenes, murky data shroud the true extent of military emissions.

Explore the challenges in obtaining accurate numbers, from opaque supply chains to unreported years.

The environmental impact of militaries stretches far beyond emissions.

Journey through nuclear testing sites, chemical pollution, and the health toll on communities near military activity.

Militaries are climate culprits, contributing 5.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

Huge, isn't it?

The report suggests a bold solution: a $111bn fund for low-income countries on climate frontlines.

But where does the money come from?

Discover the call for military bases closure and a global military "superfund."

Will redirecting military budgets towards climate reparations be the key?

Greening militaries isn't enough.

The study proposes a comprehensive audit of environmental damage and a shift towards green manufacturing.

Can we learn from past conversion projects for a sustainable future?

As the world grapples with climate change, will this study be the catalyst for change?

The US and UK militaries must demonstrate their commitment to environmental justice and climate action by taking concrete steps to address their role in the climate crisis.
