Dismantle and destroy the U.S. Military if you really care about climate change. #EarthDay
The U.S. military produces more hazardous waste than the 5 largest U.S. chem. companies combined & the Dept. Of Defense “has left it’s toxic legacy throughout the world in the form of depleted uranium, oil, jet fuel, pesticides, defoliants like Agent Orange & lead, among others.”
“U.S. military bases, both domestic and foreign, consistently rank among some of the most polluted places in the world, as perchlorate and other components of jet fuel contaminate sources of drinking water, aquifers and soil.” Via @EcoWatch

"Since colonization began on the island, Puerto Rico has lost an estimated 96% of its forest to make way for colonial industrial agriculture."
