Environmentalism is the issue of the moment. Reusable shopping bags, hybrid cars and green energy solutions are all espoused as ways to reduce carbon footprints, but these are only the tip of the quickly melting iceberg.

Frighteningly, their argument is based primarily on research leaked by the military itself.
