Environment & Conflict Prevention

Project 3.1 Climate Change
Project 3.2 Green Energy
Project 3.3 Food Security

With the onset of global warming from the burning of fossil fuels, protection of the environment has become a pillar of the Peace & Justice movement in its own right. The earth’s ecosystems face catastrophic changes in the coming decades from this threat, all of which will heighten social tensions by increasing the potential for conflicts over scarce resources. Protecting the environment is now central to the work of peacemaking, both to reduce our carbon footprint and to end conflicts over foreign oil. Our advocacy for renewable energy development here in Nebraska — particularly wind and solar — is a natural outgrowth of this new issue priority.
