I just cannot see how does destruction of people/home/country somehow equate to Environmentally Friendliiness.

Try imagining environmentalist protesting against the use of traditional bombs in the event that this Environmentally Friendly Bomb is commercialized and coutries go to war. This could well happen some day in the future!
