America’s massive carbon footprint in Iraq

During a recent talk at New York’s Revolution Bookstore, writer Raymond Lotta made the following astounding comment:

The US military…is one of the world’s largest polluters. If the war in Iraq were actually ranked as a country, in terms of carbon emissions, the war emitted more CO2 each year – that is more carbon dioxide each year – than 139 countries of the world emitted, in the aggregate, in any given year.
