38. You're not alone
Now hold onto your hat for this one. An f-16 fighter jet uses more fuel in two hours than the average American motorist uses in two years. The actual figure is ONE hour but I tend to understate so as to avoid being involved in meaningless debates on details. Don't even want to get into how much fuel one battalion uses with it's mile long convoy of gas-guzzling support vehicles.

So who's the greatest threat to life on Earth? Who puts more pollutants upon land, sea and air than any other entity? Who's the greatest "contributor" to greenhouse gasses? The Pentagon and all it's support mechanisms, all it's enablers from Universities, Senators, Media.... the all of it.
