DW News published this video item, entitled “Russia’s war in Ukraine: A chance or a setback for the climate? | DW Interview” – below is their description.

Jennifer Lee Morgan is the first special envoy for international climate action from the German government. In an interview with DW’s Washington Bureau Chief Ines Pohl, she emphasized that fighting the climate crisis is a top priority for Germany, as it presides over the G7 summit. She says the war in Ukraine has taught us how dangerous it is to depend on fossil fuels and how Germany is not only looking to phase out Russian fossil fuels, but all fossil fuels. To do that, the German government is trying to move to renewable energy and become more energy efficient, and it’s working around the world to get others to do the same.
