EastMed gas pipeline a 'timebomb': Greenpeace

27 mln tonnes of CO2 per year, possible military target

(ANSA) - BELGRADE, MAR 1 - According to a new Greenpeace report, the EastMed gas pipeline could lead to war and exacerbate the climate crisis. The pipeline would increase the risk of armed conflict in an already militarized region by passing through contested maritime borders between Greece, Turkey, and the divided island of Cyprus, according to Greenpeace. If built, the EastMed pipeline could generate greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to 27 million tonnes of CO2 per year, after accounting for energy consumption, transportation, and leakage. Furthermore, the pipeline could also become a clear military target, as evidenced by the 2022 attacks on the NordStream pipeline connecting Russia and Germany, Greenpeace claimed. (ANSA).
