Venice, San Francisco, Climate-wrecking

Think of the great cities about to be lost as seas rise on a warming planet. That is Venice, and our guests Gray Brechin and Luca Muscara take us there, to the battleground between human history and climate change. But we go further into the killing role of great cities and lessons for our future from the New Deal. I’m Alex Smith. Let’s explore time and place on Radio Ecoshock.

SNIPPET:

THE U.S. ARMY KNOWS CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL AND REALLY BIG

There have been rumors and suppositions the American military knows climate change is an existential threat to their operations, and to all of us. This summer, the U.S. Army released a counter-point to President Trump’s climate denial. It’s called “Implications of Climate Change for the U.S. Army“, published by the United States Army War College and instigated from the top, by Trump’s appointed chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley.

I found the conclusions of this Army report remarkable and really useful not only to climate, but to those who try to be prepared for an unstable future. The elite army authors write:

“It is useful to remind ourselves regularly of the capacity of human beings to persist in stupid beliefs in the face of significant, contradictory evidence.”

My friend Jim – and unlike some people, my friend Jim in Texas is not imaginary – Jim writes of this Army paper:

“The Army seems to be a master of understatement. It seems to be surprisingly self-aware.

These are my favorite quotes from the paper:

‘The Army has thrived despite a culture of environmental oblivion that exists within the force….‘

‘The Army is not an environmentally friendly organization….’

‘In short, the Army is an environmental disaster…‘ No kidding! says Jim.

But this is not just the American army, but all armies of all countries in the world. We waste money on weapons to kill one another, blowing huge clouds of pointless carbon into the sky from ships, tanks, rockets and planes, while the climate emergency marches in to kill us all. We need to turn that around quickly.

Here is a link to that Army paper, and a good article about it by Nafeez Ahmed published by Vice on October 24, 2019.

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
