Outrage + Optimism

Mar 14, 2022

As the news from Ukraine unfolds quickly, detailing the tragedy Ukrainian citizens are living through, our hosts Christiana Figueres, Tom Rivett-Carnac, and Paul Dickinson cut straight to the roots of what is fueling this conflict - Our global addiction to fossil fuels. 


What is our response as a global community to this crisis and many other current violent crises when many will argue climate action isn’t affordable and we should ramp up independent oil and gas production? Will we gather ourselves around the moral clarity that we need to end the violence by breaking our addiction once and for all?


Because our addiction is fueling the conflict we are watching our neighbors and our neighbor’s children suffer. It’s time to quit.



Christiana + Tom’s book ‘The Future We Choose’ is available now!
