Press briefing: War and climate change


"War and climate change are intertwined in ways that journalists need to understand. Violent conflicts in Gaza, Ukraine, and elsewhere are not only causing terrible human suffering, they are fueling the climate crisis." This press briefing from Covering Climate Now discusses the carbon footprints of military operations, how extreme weather can "kindle armed conflict," and how to talk about the climate crisis when war is ongoing. Panelists include Neta C. Crawford from the University of Oxford, Rawan Damen from Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism, and Ellie Kinney, from the Conflict and Environment Observatory.
