EU calls for deal to phase out fossil fuels at COP28

The European Parliament's call for a shift away from fossil fuels ahead of the upcoming COP28 summit is a firm engagement for climate action. In this bid to pressure global leaders, the EU advocates for an ambitious approach, seeking a definitive phase-out of fossil fuels to curb CO2 emissions.

Their proposition aims to anchor the global community towards achieving the crucial 1.5°C target, emphasising the necessity of halting new investments in fossil fuel extraction. This bold stance, though not directly part of the COP28 negotiations, amplifies the EU's commitment to push climate policies aligned with international accords.
What's important is that this call goes beyond the conventional phrasing of 'unabated' fossil fuel phase-outs, advocating for a comprehensive approach that doesn't allow loopholes. It's a call to confront the climate crisis head-on, acknowledging the urgency and severity of the situation.
This stance taken by the EU Parliament could be a positive sign for proper discussions at COP28, urging countries to recalibrate their commitments and expedite measures to steer away from reliance on fossil fuels.

    no ...that's no plan ...it's propaganda bigotry to foster billions in 'investments' around the world to continue with senseless destruction of the planet industry, development, corporations, abuse, overconsumption ...

                                  This is a significant and positive step towards addressing the global climate crisis. Phasing out fossil fuels is crucial in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and transitioning to renewable energy sources. The EU's call for a deal at COP28 shows their commitment to taking bold action to combat climate change. It is important for other countries and stakeholders to support this initiative and work together towards a sustainable and low-carbon future.
