Fact of the Day

The US military—with its nearly 1000 bases worldwide and insatiable reliance on fossil fuel to  keep all of its ships, planes, tanks, trucks, and jeeps running—is the single largest source of carbon dioxide emissions (the gases causing climate change) in the world. 

The Pentagon’s carbon footprint is 70% of total US emissions. 

US military uses more oil than 175 smaller countries combined.
