Nord Stream Leaks: Discussing New Climate Security Threats

Four leaks were detected last month in the gas pipelines linking Russia to Europe; Nord Stream 2 and Nord Stream 1. In all likelihood, the incidents were an act of sabotage.

In this episode, we discuss the leaks’ environmental and geopolitical impacts with Sascha Müller-Kraenner, the CEO of Deutsche Umwelthilfe (Environmental Action Germany), a leading environmental, nature conservation, and consumer advocacy organisation.

Are the leaks the methane bomb we fear and what can we do to fix them? Moreover, could these events prompt governments to take climate security - and energy security - more seriously?
