Bloomberg Markets and Finance published this video item, entitled “Bloomberg Green: How the Ukraine War is impacting Climate Change” – below is their description.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has caused the world to rethink its relationship with energy. Oil embargoes and cancelled pipelines have sent prices surging from Europe to Asia and South America. But while the short term impacts are clear, will it actually speed up the transition to renewables in the long term?

In this edition of Bloomberg Green, we go from Europe to America to the Middle East to discuss how the invasion of Ukraine is impacting politics and global energy markets. We speak with Ukrainian-American billionaire Michael Polsky about his route to running a renewables giant, how it is faring in the midst of war, and what he is doing for his fellow Ukrainians. Plus, Radiant Energy Group’s Mark Nelson tells us why nuclear power is both a safer and surer source of energy when it comes to a conflict zone.
