How our dependence on fossil fuels is leading the world into war
Climate activist Ilyess El Kortbi cofounded Fridays For Future Ukraine in 2019, but he was forced to flee his country earlier this year. "We were standing together to demand a safe future ... a future free of fossil fuels, but we ended up in a war which is full of these fossils that Europe still continues to buy from autocrats." He calls for countries worldwide to get out of "the fossil fuel trap" and to take action on the climate now — our peace depends on it.
