I think war should always be included in environmental discussions. It should be included as a cause of environmental destruction and extinction of animals. The physical suffering is obvious. The main contribution war has to a polluted, unhealthy earth is the distraction of so much creative energy that at this time could be used for a better purpose.
Earth Day kind of speaks to less violence against our beautiful planet, but not very much about how violence toward each other correlates to our environmental troubles. I have been thinking a World Peace Day might help.
Editor’s note: The United Nations recognizes Sept. 21 at the International Day of Peace, sometimes known as World Peace Day.
