Carbon Emissions,Pentgon
Date: 2019-06-14
Cost of War, a recently released study from the Watson Institute at Brown University has found that the Pentagon emits more GHG in one year than several industrialized countries, including Sweden and Portugal.

The Defense Department -- the Pentagon -- is the world's single largest consumer of oil and 55th largest GHG emitter, releasing 59 million metric tons of CO2 and other GHGs into the atmosphere in 2017 alone.

The report notes the majority of the Pentagon's energy consumption is related to maintaining 560,000 buildings at 500 military installations and the jet and diesel fuel used to move soldiers and weapons.
