With fossil fuel blackmail characterizing a new form of "energy warfare", the Ukraine-Russia crisis has shaken the roots of global energy policy. While barbaric attacks on a sovereign nation like Ukraine (now resulting in consistent massacres across multiple cities and the continuous heinous genocide and [gang]rape of innocent civilians in cities like Bucha and Kyiv) by a fossil fuel giant like Russia powering the entire European continent shouldn't have been what jolted the world to finally take action on a long-pending energy transition, the political reactions of European governments is a move both welcomed by climate activists and scientists, alike.

That is the most unfortunate part," states Supriya Verma, an award-winning sustainability advocate pushing for a global sustainability transition and founder of SustainabilityX®.
