VFP Stop the War, Save the Climate! project:
This project is designed to alert the public to the connections between the ongoing climate crisis and militarism, especially the war in Ukraine, by having veterans risk arrest to stress their commitment to the message. Even though the U.S. has finally passed a climate bill in the form of the “Inflation Reduction Act of 2022,” the $369 billion energy and climate portion of the bill allocates far less than the U.S. is projected to spend on its nuclear forces alone between 2021 and 2030 and is less than 1/30th of projected military spending during the same period. This ratio of military to climate mitigation spending cannot continue if the U.S. hopes to uphold its commitments made in the Paris Agreement at COP21.
