What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

The carbon footprint of Wall Street's military-financial-industrial complex




Wall Street's military-financial-industrial complex driven by profits provides the largest carbon footprint. Peace is an environmental issue seldom discussed by environmentalists yet a tremendous amount of energy is required to keep the merchants of death and destruction who profit from wars happy. The amount of fuel wasted in maintaining U.S. military operations and fighting wars in one year would provide enough fuel to run and operate all public transportation systems here in the United States for over 18 months. Peace and the re-ordering of this country's priorities must become part of the environmental movement. Wall Street exploits labor in the process of raping Mother Nature leaving our living environment one big polluted mess tax-payers are then forced to finance the clean-up.
