The military carbon bootprint and arms conversion

23 April 2021 - 16:30


The military carbon bootprint and arms conversion

Dr Stuart Parkinson, SGR, outlines how the military fuels climate change - and thus how there is an urgent need for arms conversion. He summarises the latest data on the 'military carbon boot-print' and looks at examples of arms conversion, including the 1976 Lucas Plan and 2020 Ventilator Challenge.

This presentation is part of a workshop on 'Militarism, climate change and global dissent' - one of the sessions at From the Ground Up II - a global online gathering organised by the COP26 coalition from 22 to 25 April 2021.

This workshop runs from 16.30 to 18.00 BST.
