Jane Fonda tells Emily Maitlis that not only should fossil fuel companies pay reparations to countries affected by climate change, but that the actions of the fossil fuel industry should be “held accountable” in court “just like crimes against humanity have been put on trial at Nuremberg” as they have “damaged the whole globe”.

The actress has been arrested multiple times recently for taking part in climate change protests in the US. She says she was inspired by the student protests, led by activist Greta Thunberg.
