Russian invasion shows risks of addiction to fossil fuels

Will Biden fund a shift to renewable energy?

Global oil and gas prices are skyrocketing as the US bans Russian energy imports as part of its sanctions on Russia for invading Ukraine.

In retaliation, Russia threatened to cut off natural gas to Europe via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline.

Democracy Now! speaks to energy and climate investigative reporter Antonia Juhasz, author of The Tyranny of Oil: The World’s Most Powerful Industry, about growing calls for a green energy revolution amid the climate crisis and rising prices for fossil fuels.

“The bottom line is to achieve, first, peace in Ukraine and stop Putin, and then to make the transition from fossil fuels,” Juhasz says.
