Brazilian Climate Head Warns Climate Change Will Lead to Great Global Instability

HeadlineFeb 28, 2024

In other climate news, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen met with Brazil’s Environment Minister Marina Silva in São Paulo Tuesday. Silva warned that the climate emergency could lead to more global conflict.

Marina Silva: “We are living in a context of wars, with terrible losses from a humanitarian point of view, from an ethical, political, social, economic point of view. It is practically unspeakable, what is happening in the world with the wars that are happening, and obviously that we want peace. But in the context of climate change, we cannot forget, deny the fact that we can have great instabilities if we do not solve the problem of climate change.”
