Neil Young- Damaged & Done

Neil Young decries war on ISIS over environmental concerns

OTTAWA — In an interview with radio shock-jock Howard Stern, Canadian rocker Neil Young suggested a fight against the Islamic State (ISIS) is not worth the release of greenhouse gases from military vehicles.

In a weekend interview, Young told Stern that wars were contributing significantly to climate change.

“We can do little things to fight climate change but our armed forces are the biggest carbon dioxide providers in the world, and yet we are fighting, what, ISIS?” he said, adding terror groups like al-Qaida have smaller carbon footprints than Western militaries and their “big machines.”
