Mass People’s Movement Needed!

The fundamental change to prevent climate catastrophe and nuclear war needs to come from the bottom up. It won’t come from the top down that put us in this crisis position. The mass movement needs to be rooted in nonviolence – kapu aloha, to protect this sacred earth and the dignity of all life.

VFP Statement on Results of COP26 (UN Climate Conference)

      If COP26 is the “last best hope for the world” as Climate Envoy John Kerry stated, the USA is largely responsible for the failure to achieve that “hope.” President Biden says the USA is “… leading by the power of our example”. The Veterans For Peace Climate Crisis & Militarism Project (CCMP) believes that the USA’s poor “example” led to the half-measures achieved at COP26.

  • Why should other nations, both USA’s friends and foes, prioritize action on climate when the USA spends more in one year on so-called “defense” than the total 10-year funding for climate action proposed in Biden’s Build Back Better plan?
  • Biden’s promised doubling of funds “…by 2024 to $11.4 billion per year to help developing nations deal with climate change,” is less than the funds added by Congress ($25 BILLION) to an already bloated FY 2022 military budget, (now totaling more than $778 Billion.)

      In his address at COP26, President Biden stated the climate crisis poses “…the existential threat to human existence as we know it.” Unfortunately, the actions of the Biden administration are not just inadequate, they are counterproductive. How can other countries trust the intentions of the U.S. government to prioritize a meaningful response to climate change when the U.S. expends vast resources on maintaining its global military dominance? Without the trust of other nations, the USA cannot expect international cooperation in what should be a shared effort to meaningfully address the climate crisis. Read the entire statement


As we offer prayers during this Holy Season, let us be grounded in our responsibilities to one another and the earth we share. Justice, peace, and the environment are the keys to human survival!
