How much pollution do wars cause?



  1. 0 Votes

    Wars are devastating on the environment. Often, as in the gulf war, millions of tons of crude oil are dumped into the ocean. Chemical toxins and herbicides like Agent Orange have been released to kill off entire forests and grasslands. To this day traces of Agent Orange are found plants in Vietnam. Oil and sulfur fires are very common in war releasing tons of air pollution and increasing atmospheric carbon levels. Military vehicles burn millions of gallons of fuel and dump millions of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere. There is no real way to measure the exact amount pollution caused by war, but in general, it is safe to say that war is bad for everyone and everything.
