WORST environmental disaster in world history looming in Yemen – UN humanitarian chief (E780)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to UN Undersecretary General Sir Mark Lowcock on the Yemen crisis, he discusses the worsening humanitarian situation, the degradation of civilian infrastructure, and the looming possibility of the world’s worst environmental crisis if the SAFER oil tanker facility explodes or collapses. Next, we speak to former minister of state at the Home Office Norman Baker for this week’s latest stories, including the Tories’ loss to the Lib Dems in the Brecon by-election and what this means for Boris Johnson, Tulsi Gabbard directly accusing Trump of supporting Al-Qaeda in Syria, corporate courts after Brexit, and the Cameroon conflict turning climate-stressed farmers into ‘food beggars.’ Finally, we speak to Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD for Sinn Fein regarding the likelihood of a united Ireland after a no-deal Brexit, whether the island of Ireland is prepared for such an outcome, his thoughts on Boris Johnson’s cabinet appointments such as Home Secretary Priti Patel who famously threatened to starve Ireland, and more!
