The US and EU have announced measures to stop money from Russian oil from fuelling the war, but they’re not effective enough. Western oil and gas companies have managed to exploit loopholes to continue this deadly trade with Russia.
A top UN climate scientist from Ukraine has called on world leaders to make a bigger effort to stop deadly fossil fuels from enabling this war and ensure a rapid and just transition to renewable energy.
Please take action and urge the G7 leaders to impose a total embargo on the import and trade of Russian oil now – and speed up the move to green energy sources, for the sake of peace, human rights and the future of our planet.
World leaders have wasted enough time delaying real action on the war in Ukraine and the climate crisis. It’s time for them to truly take the lead.
Take action today
