The Pentagon, Climate Change & War – Interfaith Creation Care of the  TriangleDr. Crawford is Montague Burton Chair in International Relations, Professorial Fellow at Balliol College, Oxford University, and she will be discussing her book The Pentagon, Climate Change, and War (MIT Press, 2022).

In this book she explains how the U.S. military’s dependence on fossil fuels and consequent need to defend the sources of those fuels leads to a cycle of demand, consumption, militarization and conflict.

She also explains how the Pentagon has reduced substantially its dependence on fossil fuels, but can do more to make life on our planet sustainable.

She will take questions from the audience following her presentation.

This event is free and open to the public.
