Interesting how these are also the countries with the largest militaries. The US military emits as much as 140 countries combined. We like to point to consumerism and corporate waste, but it’s equally important to consider the incredible waste that global military brinksmanship also plays in the emission of greenhouse gases.

Nothing will ever be done. We can’t even feed people or give them healthcare. How are we gonna tell billionaires to stop spending and ruining the earth? Sorry it’s just getting old how they ignore it over and over until we’re burning up
