The U.S. and Russia are testing non-nuclear thermobaric weapons. The "green" weapons are designed to have the direct impact of nuclear weapons but without the negative impact on the environment. In the U.S. it's called the "mother of all bombs" and in Russia, it's the "dad of all bombs."

Implications - The drastic increase in eco-consciousness over the past several years has impacted even the most unsuspecting of industries. In some cases, the global preoccupation with the environment is a platform for politicians and media sources to distract from other issues by making controversial political agendas environmentally friendly and appealing to the primary concerns of the masses.
