Rishi Sunak accused of hypocrisy after backing phase-out of fossil fuels at Cop28

Rishi Sunak has been accused of hypocrisy on the international stage after pushing for a phase-out of fossil fuels at the UN Cop28 climate summit in Dubai – weeks after backing more oil and gas exploration in the North Sea. The prime minister’s lack of “consistency” over climate policy was ridiculed by several senior Conservatives, as well as the former US vice president Al Gore, while members of other international delegations said the UK’s incoherent approach meant it was no longer a global leader on climate issues. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2023/dec/02/rishi-sunak-accused-of-hypocrisy-after-backing-phase-out-of-fossil-fuels-at-cop28

      Sunak has been very inconsistent in his commitment for timelines to phase out fossil fuels and also adaptation of EVS. Seeing him at COP 28 saying the otherwise is sheer hypocrisy

          Rishi Sunak must make his actions speak louder than mere words for his actions to be taken with seriousness

            It is important for Sunak to reconcile his words and actions if he wants to be seen as a serious champion of climate action.

                  It is important for politicians to be consistent in their actions and beliefs, so accusations of hypocrisy should be taken seriously.
