April 22 2020 is officially the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. This Earth Day, we’re asking our supporters to help spread the message that #WarIsNotGreen

2. Share talking points on social media about #WarisNOTGreen

  • Did you know the Pentagon is the single largest institutional consumer of fossil fuels in the world? #WarisNOTGreen! we need to cut the Pentagon budget and invest in a Green New Deal NOW!
  • Did you know If the Pentagon were a country, its fuel use alone would make it the 47th largest greenhouse gas emitter in the world? If we’re going to address the climate crisis, we need to #DivestFromWar NOW! #WarIsNotGreen 
  • Instead of spending $740 billion on the Pentagon budget every year, we should invest in a Green New Deal and cultivate our local peace economies #WarIsNotGreen 
  • US military emissions come mainly from fueling weapons and equipment. That means that asset managers like @blackrock are contributing greatly to climate change when they invest billions in weapons manufacturers like Raytheon and Lockheed Martin. #WarIsNotGreen 

3. Take Action for a #PeacefulGreenFuture by…. 

Telling the Fed Chair that BlackRock, the world's largest investor in weapons manufacturers and fossil fuels, must use our taxpayer money  to bail out the people and not the weapon and oil companies.
