Home > FAQ > What about climate change?

We accept that climate change is a serious threat and support efforts to counter it. War is seriously damaging to the environment and environmental damage such as drought and floods can force the mobility of populations, resulting in serious conflict. Recent scientific study has concluded that even an exchange of as few as 100 nuclear weapons would cause smoke reducing light and causing a significant reduction in food production globally. Thus, it is true that both war causes environmental damage and that environmental damage can cause war.
