Dr Elizabeth Boulton, a former army major in the ADF has published Plan E with the US Marine Corps University in Virginia. Her expertise in logistics and experience in East Timor and Iraq has shown her the flaws in our preparation for threats of a conventional nature.
She calls for a Climate Emergency Peace Treaty to give us time to focus on the hyperthreat that makes present day conflicts pale in comparison.
She is shocked that there is no plan to disarm the climate hyperthreat. Armies of the world are sent to protect the supply lines for oil, coal and gas yet these are at the core of the hyperthreat. Police are used to intimidate and imprison protestors blockading the system that is overheating the earth. This is outdated thinking and dangerous.
Governments, financiers, military and intelligence services are rocketing our ecosystems to "hothouse Earth". However, what is presently legal will soon become criminal ecocide.
Imagine an oil well being dismantled by workers and attacked by mercenaries from the black market in Oil.
Or imagine a forest with Indigenous protectors being terrorised by illegal loggers.
Or fisheries or water supplies that need to be conserved for the common good.
Or miners opening up an illegal coal mine. It's hard to imagine it now, but calling in the troops to protect this work might be necessary if all other peaceful negotiations fail.
There is a lot of compassion for veterans traumatised by what they have done and seen and this plan re deploys them in building and land regeneration. Mobilising the 18 million people displaced by climate chaos would give them jobs as earth citizens.
Dr Boulton's fast and furious plan is that Global security forces will be deployed to help us survive.
