Introduction:
 
The continuation of US wars abroad is a threat to the very existence of humanity. Our thirst for oil and natural resources means wars and occupations for the purpose of controlling these resources. Our continued dependence on fossil fuels, at the expense of safe, renewable, alternatives, means that global climate changes will devastate populations and ecosystems. We will also be faced with other disasters like the BP oil spill in the Gulf and the fouling of our waters by natural gas extraction in the Marcellus Shale region.
