Abstract:

The implications of the worldwide environmental movement as they impact upon the Army are examined. Strengths and weaknesses of the current Army Environmental Program are discussed. The environment as a strategic issue affecting military operations abroad is analyzed. Assuming that the world is in an ecocrisis, several environmental scenarios involving possible military intervention are postulated. Civic action programs, base development planning, and environmental assessment of military operations offer peacetime opportunities for the military strategist to participate actively and constructively in the Army Environmental Program.
