The Intersection of War and the Climate Crisis
This week on Just Solutions, the intersection of war and the climate crisis. Ukraine’s leading climate scientist has said the human-induced climate crisis and the war against Ukraine have direct connections and the same roots: our dependance on fossil fuels. This of course is not the only conflict with connections to energy resources. Our guest today Michael Klare has examined this connection for many years. He is professor emeritus of peace and world-security studies at Hampshire College, defense correspondent for the Nation magazine, and author of numerous books including All Hell Breaking Loose: The Pentagon’s Perspective on Climate Change, and Blood and Oil: The Dangers and Consequences of America's Growing Dependency on Imported Petroleum.
