A leading Ukrainian scientist says the war is “closing the window of opportunity” for the world to prevent climate change
Dr Krakovska pointed out that scientists had been laying out the evidence for a need to make that transition to renewable energy for decades. “To me it’s obvious,” she said. “If we want to survive, we have to do this.”
But she pointed out that the window of opportunity to slash emissions – by, in part, switching to those low carbon and renewable energy sources – is closing very rapidly.
“This war,” she added, “it makes this window of opportunity even more narrow, because now we have to solve this problem first.”
