The carbon boot-print of the military

Dr Stuart Parkinson, SGR, summarises the latest data on the large but neglected carbon emissions of military activities. These emissions are often not included within official national inventories, and in many cases not even estimated at all. He argues that these emissions need to be counted and rapidly reduced in the struggle against the climate crisis.
