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, from the 1976 Lucas Plan to the 2020 Ventilator Challenge.
This presentation was 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 ran from 16.30 to 18.00 BST on Friday 23 April.
