In Lebanon, climate change devours ancient cedar trees

High up in Lebanon’s mountains, the lifeless grey trunks of dead cedar trees stand stark in the deep green forest, witnesses of the climate change that has ravaged them.

The cedar tree, with its majestic horizontal branches, graces the nation’s flag and its bank notes.
