War in Ukraine: The Knock-on Effects on the Minerals Necessary for the Green Transition

The invasion of Ukraine by Russia has not only impacted the price and availability of commodities such as oil and gas, but aluminium, nickel and rare earth elements including titanium, scandium and palladium.

In this episode we discuss the issues around the production and supply of rare earth minerals with Robert Muggah, a political scientist, urbanist and security expert. Muggah is the co-founder of the Igarape Institute, a think tank dedicated to climate security that is based in Brazil.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
