Military attacks have alarming consequences on our ecosystem. The military footprint is huge, with contaminated radioactive landscapes, millions of tons of ammunition filling our oceans, and toxic land heaps. Modern warfare accounts for ten percent of global carbon emissions - From the First World War until today, nature has come under fire.

viewers comments

This is by far the best documentary on the devastating consequence of humankind's preoccupation with militarisation and warfare - not only for humans but for the natural environment and all other life forms sustained by it. After watching this documentary I would like to see one person give me one good reason why humanity must continue with its preoccupation with military armaments production and warfare.
