Bill Resnick interviews Ted Franklin on Ukraine, how the war diverted attention from the looming cataclysmic threat of climate change and provided a golden opportunity to the fossil fuel industry to demand government support for “energy independence” and “drill baby drill.” Bill and Ted Franklin address how climate action movements worldwide must demand the war stop in a negotiated settlement, and soon. They discuss the war itself, and the deeper reasons for Russia’s disastrous attack, and the settlement terms that are just and make sense. Ted Franklin is a labor and environmental lawyer and activist, a member of the editorial Board of the System Change, Not Climate Change webzine and wrote a recent Op Ed “Putin’s Climate Bomb.”
