Cuba denounces climate damage due to NATO military expenditure

Havana, Apr 8 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez said on Monday that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is the largest military emitter of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) in the planet.

On his official X account, he noted that the alliance’s goal of increasing military spending to two percent of its members’ GDP is a serious threat to global efforts to mitigate the impact of climate change.

Recently, the head of Cuban diplomacy stated on the same social network that NATO’s military carbon footprint went from 196 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (C02) in 2021 to 226 million in 2023.

Those numbers exceed the GHG emissions of 80 percent of the countries of the world, he pointed out.
