Journalism




Since April 2013, Nafeez has written for The Guardian on the geopolitics of interconnected environmental, energy and economic crises via his Earth Insight global column, ratcheting up over 3 million unique views in that time-frame, and triggering global headlines on issues from mass surveillance to Mideast geopolitical conflict, from the Arctic death spiral to the great civilisational transition.

He has also written, reported and commented regularly for a range of newspapers and magazines in the UK, US and Europe

As of July 2014, Nafeez is no longer affiliated to the Guardian, and is focusing on the release of his long anticipated new novel, ZERO POINT, while he explores innovative ways to advance genuinely independent and fearless public interest journalism.
