NATO must reduce its “military emissions” in an effort to tackle climate change, Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Twitter:
This announcement comes as President Biden aims to reengage with the military alliance after fraught relations under previous President Donald Trump, who was also notoriously dubious about the scientific consensus on climate change.
Last September, in an op-ed published on the NATO website, Stoltenberg declared he had been “passionate about climate change all of my life… [and] it is my responsibility to address the threat climate change poses to our shared security.”
