Abstract

The environment and world peace cannot be treated as two separate issues. Most existing conflicts are caused not merely by differences between political and religious ideologies, but by limited natural resources. Ironically, however, mankind has finally been given an opportunity to realize world peace, because unless we cooperate with each other, regardless of politics, religion, and ethnicity, we cannot find a way to survive imminent environmental crisis. Facing these threats from global warming, the population explosion, nuclear power, and so on, I argue that we must launch Ecological Peace Studies as a real fusion of the natural and social sciences.
