"This sets a dangerous precedent" Laments Greenpeace on the appointment of a CEO of an oil company as president of Cop28

In reaction to the announcement that Sultan al-Jaber, head of the state oil giant Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), one of the world’s largest oil companies, will lead the COP28 climate talks in Dubai later this year, Tracy Carty, Global Climate Politics expert with Greenpeace International, said:
“Greenpeace is deeply alarmed at the appointment of an oil company CEO to lead the global climate negotiations.
This sets a dangerous precedent, risking the credibility of the UAE and the trust that has been placed in them by the UN on behalf of people, current and future generations. COP28 needs to conclude with an uncompromised commitment to a just phase out of all fossil fuels: coal, oil and gas.
There is no place for the fossil fuel industry in the global climate negotiations.”

      Let's hope COP28 will remain objectively clear to bring an end to the use of fossil fuels.

          At Cop27 we had the world's largest plastic polluting company,Coca-Cola as the main sponsor of the conference and now we have a CEO of one of the world's largest oil company come in as the president of the very major climate negotiation conference!!!I'm lost for words and I now tend to feel like we're already veered off the climate action course. Something is wrong somewhere and it's crystal clear that the crisis we are in isn't being treated with the ultimate seriousness that it deserves.

                UAE's credibility is at risk and Such people should not have any place in the global climate negotiations

                  @gorffly_mokua I could add the UAE on the list of greenwashers now with so much confidence.

                      @waigwa_monica Yes this is distressing, and if no action is taken then this will be evident that our opinions and voices doesn't matter.

                        @peter_kamau It is so unfortunate that some world leaders and public figures are among the people who are dragging us behind and fully participating in greenwashing!!
