26: Ben Neimark - Militarism and Environmental Destruction

Dr Ben Neimark joins us to discuss national security doctrine and the climate crisis, carbon lock-in of new weapons systems, and the ethical quandaries posed by environmentally-friendly weaponry.

Dr Ben Neimark is a Senior Lecturer at the Lancaster University Environment Centre. A human geographer and political ecologist by training, his research focuses on the socio-ecological effects of military supply chains and their wider environmental footprint. We spoke with him in March 2022.
