The morning became with a bank walk led by Climate First. Banks including TD Bank, Wells Fargo, CHASE, and Bank of America are funding Enbridge, the multi-national corporation who is behind the Line 3 tar sands, crude oil pipeline. We joined Climate First in hand delivering letters to multiple bank’s CEO’s calling on them to STOP funding climate destruction and breaking treaties.
What is the intersection of oil, war, the climate crisis and militarism?
- Oil is the leading cause of war: An estimated one-quarter to one-half of all interstate wars since 1973 have been linked to oil.
- The Pentagon is the world’s largest consumer of oil and causes more greenhouse gas pollution than 140 nations combined.
- is the single largest institutional consumer of fossil fuels in the world
- If the Pentagon were a country, its fuel use alone would make it the 47th largest greenhouse gas emitter in the world
