Why are most media outlets not giving the climate emergency the 24/7 coverage they provided for the COVID-19 pandemic?
For most people, climate change boils down to the simple fact that it’s just a lot hotter than it used to be. And for people in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), those temperatures have been rising too fast.

In this episode:
- Karim Elgendy (@NomadandSettler), Associate Fellow at Chatham House (@ChathamHouse) and Founder of Carboun Cities (@CarbounCities)
- Anwar AlAdwan, a farmer in the Jordan Valley
