Special: Scarred Lands and Wounded Lives



Category: Documentaries




Topics: Environment, ;;War / Violent Conflict, ;;Political Institutions / Systems

We all know the toll that the military-industrial complex has had on human lives - but who ever talks about that passive participant, the planet? Anyone who has studied nuclear testing has seen the damage that large scale warfare can do, and the impact it has on local communities and infrastructure.



In this special presentation, renowned actor and activist Peter Coyote looks at how weapons corporations have had their way with our most important resource - the Earth. In this special will we show you clips from a fantastic new documentary, Scarred Lands and Wounded Lives, which reveals how the environment remains war's silent casualty. We are also joined by legendary journalist Robert Scheer, author of The Pornography of Power: How Defense Hawks Hijacked 9/11 and Weakened America.



About the film: Scarred Lands and Wounded Lives

The film Scarred Lands and Wounded Lives: The Environmental Footprint of War was prompted by the recognition of our deep dependence on the natural world and the significant threat to that world posed by war and preparations for war.



The scale of environmental damage over the last half century is unprecedented. ;; ;; Falling water tables, shrinking forest cover, declining species diversity - all presage ecosystems in distress. ;; ;; These trends are now widely acknowledged as emanating from forces of humanity's own making: massive population increases, unsustainable demands on natural resources, species loss, ruinous environmental practices. ;; ;; Ironically however, war, that most destructive of human behaviors, is commonly bypassed.



In all its stages, from the production of weapons through combat to cleanup and restoration, war entails actions that pollute land, air, and water, destroy biodiversity, and drain natural resources. ;; ;; Yet the environmental damage occasioned by war and preparation for war is routinely underestimated, underreported, even ignored. ;; ;; The environment remains war's "silent casualty."



Activities that do such damage cry out for far-reaching public scrutiny. The very sustainability of our planet is at stake. We can no longer maintain silence about the environmental impact of war on the grounds that such scrutiny is "inconvenient" or "callous" at a time when human life is so endangered.



If we cannot eliminate war, we can at least require a fuller accounting of war's costs and consequences, and demand that destructive forces used in our name leave a lighter footprint on this highly vulnerable planet. It is to this change in values and actions that this documentary film is directed.
