PUBLIC LECTURE: "Climate Change, Energy Security and Militarism"
A  Critical Look at the  Western  Militaries'  Impact  on Climate and the  Environment
Thursday,  November  16,  2017
7:30 pm
Tilley Hall, Room 5
University of New Brunswick, Fredericton
Speaker: Tamara Lorincz, PhD student, Balsillie School for International Affairs
Free, All Welcome. Reception to follow.
Hosted by the Gregg Centre for the Study of War and Society, University of New Brunswick and the Canadian Voice of Women for Peace

This presentation examines the fuel consumption and climate impacts of the American and Canadian militaries. It investigates how emissions by these militaries are reported or not in the national greenhouse gas inventories submitted to the United Nations' Framework Convention on Climate Change. Where is the place for the military in the future "radical restructuring of the economy and energy systems," as called for by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change? How can countries like the U.S., and Canada achieve net-zero greenhouse gas reductions by 2050 and meet financial commitments under the UN Green Climate Fund and the new Sustainable Development Goals while maintaining high defence spending and operation tempo as demanded by NATO? Research findings place peace and disarmament at the centre of climate change mitigation and adaptation.
